An Evening with Poet Robert Clawson,
Artist Betsyann Duval, and Vocalist Kane Clawson
Reading / Performance / Q&A
Wednesday, June 26th, 7:00pm
A special event with New England creatives, poet Bob Clawson, artist Betsyann Duval, and vocalist Kane Clawson at Time Tested Books in Sacramento. A brief open mic period will follow the featured performers. Hosted by Leonard Germinara and Frank Graham.

Bob Clawson is a writer, a fisherman, a cook. His writing has great range: he’s been published in both The Southern Review and Yankee, in the Christian Science Monitor and The Lancet (the weekly British medical journal). He’s also been published in Beloit Poetry Journal and Poet Lore, among others. Bob's chapbook, Nightbreak, published in 1997, achieved two additional press runs. He currently offers a collection of 15 poems on a professionally produced CD. His formal education includes a two-room schoolhouse, Kenyon College, Harvard, and Yale. He has visited 32 of the United States, and has been abroad to France, The British Isles, Italy, Greece, Mexico, and to several island nations such as Jamaica, Cuba, and Nantucket.

Betsyann Duval has received awards in national exhibitions from noted jurors including a First Prize, Painting from Lisa Dennison, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Soloman R. Guggenheim Museum, a Director's Prize from Maxwell Anderson, Director, Whitney Museum of American Art, and a Print Prize from Peter Rathbone, VP and Director of the American Paintings and Sculpture, Sotheby's. Her work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions in the U.S and Europe, and is included in the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Archives of Women Artists.

Kane Clawson is a versatile vocalist who features with the bands WildCat Creek, Country Jam, and the a cappella improv group Menage A Voix. She’ll be singing songs by Irish poets: W.B.Yeats’ Down by the Salley Gardens; Joseph Campbell’s My Lagan Love; and A Stor Mo Chroi, by Brian O' Higgins, the Irish Patriot known as Brian Na Banban. Three trips to Ireland (while still in her twenties) triggered Kane’s love of Irish traditional music, which she enriched while singing in southwestern North Carolina, in Newfoundland, and in northwestern Connecticut, where she currently lives and performs. She has sung just once in California, at a farmer’s market in Point Reyes Station.
