Sleigh and Hersh at WAMFEST 2012
For the second day of WAMFEST 2012, punk-rocker Kristin Hersh and poet Tom Sleigh joined WAMFEST artist-in-residence and visiting professor Wesley Stace for music and conversation. The three talked, amongst other topics, about the question, "When are lyrics poetry?" which Hersh had tweeted to Stace earlier in the day. Hersh sang and played guitar on her songs "Your Dirty Answer" and "Your Ghost." She also talked about her recent book, which she describes as "publishing her teenage diary." Sleigh read selections of his poetry including "Space Station" and "January 9."
