Michael Fehr’s poems are inspired by Blues Music in the way they sound. His use of repetition, reduction and the careful deployment of articulation is also very much like the original Blues lyrics and sounds of the Mississippi Delta, in the early years of Blues music.
Fehr draws on the Blues tradition of making storytelling just as important as the sounds. Both of these characteristics are essential to his poetry.
Come listen and watch this marvelous poet in action.
