A Gathering for Steve Cannon (The Blind Guy)
If this your first time hearing the news, it is with profound sadness that we inform you, Steve Cannon passed away in the early morning hours, Sunday, July 7th.
A gathering to remember Steve Cannon and collectively mourn his loss will be held this Sunday, July 14th, at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery), in the East Village of New York City from 11am to 4pm.
A more formal memorial service/celebration of life will be held in October, so that those who live out of town, or who are currently traveling for the summer may attend. Details about the memorial service in October will be announced soon.
For the gathering this Sunday at the Bowery Poetry Club, we will make an sign up sheet available at the club for those who wish take the stage and share a story of remembrance, a poem, a song or dance, or anything of your choosing, in honor of Steve. Select featured hosts and speakers/readers will also be announced soon.
We ask that all who take the stage keep their artistic remembrances to under three minutes in length, respecting the large number of people who will wish to share. We cannot guarantee everyone who signs up will get get a chance to speak, but we will do our best to give everyone who wants to share, a chance to do so. We ask, for those sharing poetry and music, that the piece you share be in some way related to Steve, and you are also encouraged to share his own writing.
You can RSVP via the Facebook event page, here, though entry is on a first-come basis.
