POSTPONED "Getting to Know Weldon Kees Through His Songs & Lyrics"

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Beatrice, Nebraska native Weldon Kees, known primarily for his dark poetry, was also one of the mid-century’s most versatile and artistic personalities. He was an abstract expressionist artist, photographer, accomplished pianist and composer/lyricist of popular songs. Singer-Songwriter Helen Waring Johnson discusses Kees and performs from this little known repertoire, focusing on Kees’ witty, intelligent lyrics of songs written in collaboration with San Francisco clarinetist Bob Helm.
