2/25 The Burren

On Sunday, Feb. 25th at 7:30pm, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza (Jane Park) performs with Vietnamese American poet Duy Doan, and transgender singer-songwriter and poet Skylar Kergil at the Burren in Somerville. All three artists are united by a desire raise the visibility of marginalized voices, and use their art to connect to audiences who wish to experience a wide range of perspectives. Tickets are $12 advance/$16 at the door and can be purchased here: https://tickets.burren.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=268

Born in Texas, Duy is the author of the forthcoming collection We Play a Game, winner of the 2017 Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize. A Kundiman fellow, he received an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he serves as director of the Favorite Poem Project. Duy loves cats, soccer, and dance.

Skylar shares his stories through simple progressions and complicated lyrics. According to Billboard, he is one of eleven transgender and non-binary musicians to keep an eye on, writing that his music has a folk sound that sends a statement. He is a Boston native, often found nearby cats or listening to the lives of queer youth.

Boston-based, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza is an alum of the All Together Now performance series, producer of Ladies Coverband Night, and focuses her local shows on raising the visibility of women and minority performers. She is currently working on her second album and her first set of tours, which are planned for February, April, and June of 2018. For more information, please email info@pooreliza.com.
