I just finished a string of shows around Seattle and a number of them were with the inspirational poet and musician Mary Lambert. At Fremont Abbey’s The Round, Mary performed a cover of Teenage Dirtbag that brought down the house. She also accompanied my on piano for my poem, Rebecca and Her Lover Ate Oysters. If you don’t know Mary’s work, get thee to youtube!
I first met Mary when she was a youth poet involved with YouthSpeaks Seattle. Now she’s the musical wonder featured on the Maclemore song Same Love, which she co-wrote.
You can see Mary this weekend at Sasquatch performing with Maclemore.
