Six Re-1 schools are hosting slam poet Logan Phillips for a week of performances and workshops beginning April 1. Logan will be performing for each school in an assembly and then interested students will sign up to be in a 90-minute workshop with him. Steve O’geara-Standiford has offered up his cozy venue of Steve’s Guitars for a community performance at 7 p.m. April 2. After spending time writing and performing with students from Carbondale and Glenwood Middle Schools, and Glenwood, Basalt, Bridges and Yampah, students will have an opportunity to strut their stuff on Friday night for a performance that will share their experience with you. Logan will also be performing at that event.
