  • Strafford Town House 3-5 Hatch Road Strafford, VT, 05072 United States (map)

The boundaries between literature and music often intersect, and sometimes even blur. Musicians Pat Alter and Jim Rooney walk this fine line between poetry and song.

Pat Alger is an award-winning musician, prolific songwriter and Robert Frost scholar whose songs have been recorded by Garth Brooks, Nanci Griffith, Kathy Mattea, Dolly Parton, Lyle Lovett, and many others.

Jim Rooney is a musician, songwriter, chronicler, and Grammy-winning producer of Iris Dement, John Prine, Nanci Griffith, Bonnie Raitt and many more; he is the author of In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey. Join us for an evening of lyrical discussion.
