Spoken Word Artists:
Joan Calof performed monologues and plays, and often sang at Red Eye Theatre, Cheap Theatre, The Playwrights’ Center, and Patrick’s Cabaret. She won several awards for her work, including a Loft Creative Nonfiction Award and a Playwrights’ Center Jones Commission. She was adventurous in her performances, her many travels, and in all her intellectual pursuits. When she passed away last winter she left a generous gift to Patrick’s Cabaret with instructions that it support programming and not be spent on a tribute. By naming this new series after her we’re able to do both.
Each evening will feature two spoken word artists and two singer/songwriters to present works-in-progress to an audience that will be encouraged to offer feedback via dialogue with the performers. In addition, throughout the evening we’ll be offering free coffee and baked goods from our wonderful neighborhood sponsors: Peace Coffee and New French Bakery
Bob first started performing his quirky, upbeat monologues about his rather odd life in 2000. Since that time he has appeared at Patrick’s Cabaret, Balls Cabaret, and other venues many times. Bob has also done a number of shows in the "MN. Fringe". In recent appearances at Patrick’s, Bob has done segments from a new work about his early life, growing up somewhere on the edge of the Twilight Zone, that he hopes to do in the 2013 Fringe Festival.
Lynn O’Brien is an accomplished singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and hospital-based Music Therapist in the Twin Cities. Lynn’s pure and soulful voice often captivates her audience immediately, as she accompanies herself on baritone & soprano ukulele, guitar or piano. (Occasionally, she involves a loop pedal or asks for audience participation, whether group singing or spoken ideas for spontaneously written songs - what fun!) The music she writes is acoustic, honest, intimate and dynamic - mostly based in folk, jazz and blues.
She will be releasing her 3rd solo, all-original album in March, and would be thrilled to share some works in progress with you. You can learn more about Lynn, who she is and what she does by visiting her website: www.lynnobrienmusic.com

Based out of NE Minneapolis, Midwest Paul Cook plays blues, ragtime, and jazz inspired by the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s.
Matt Carlyon is a spoken word artist in the Twin Cities, as well as a Music Producer. He is currently a 20 year old College Student at MCTC, and has gone to CUPSI (the College Union Poetry Slam Invitational) with the University of Minnesota in 2011, where they placed 4th in the nation and took home "Best Individual Poet" award. In 2011, he also represented Minnesota on the youth team for Brave New Voices. His team placed first at the All City Slam in 2011, which took place at the Hennepin County Library. He also volunteered at the National Poetry Slam when it was in St. Paul in 2010, and is headed to CUPSI again this year representing MCTC!
And a special thank you to MRAC, Peace Coffee, New French Bakery, and KFAI for sponsoring this new programming!
