The public is invited to the Harbor Peer & Wellness Center on School Street, Boothbay Harbor on Sunday, Nov. 24 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. to enjoy a fun and unique evening of spoken word and music featuring poet Jason Grundstrom-Whitney with live music by Bob Colwell of The Bone Heads. Our Harbor Peer & Wellness Art Series is to promote creativity and increase community awareness around important social issues.

Jason Grundstrom-Whitney works as a substance abuse counselor at Riverview Psychiatric Hospital, and is a writer, songwriter, multi-disciplined musician and poet whose poetry appeared recently in 3 Nations Anthology and the Anthology of Maine Poets. Jason has a first book of poems forthcoming, “Tongue Like Tectonic Plates.” His band, Tired Eyes’ recent CD, “Light-Infused Dust,” was featured on WCSH6’s “207.” A Traditional Bear Clan member of the Passamaquoddy, he is also a husband, father and grandfather.

Songwriter, keyboardist and vocalist Bob Colwell, also a member of Tired Eyes, has graced many a stage and CD with his talents. Bob is the owner of the Root Cellar, a multi-purposed recording studio, as well as the founder of the popular band The Bone Heads. A well-known, respected musician, during the evening Bob will join Jason in a series combining poems with music from their newest venture, Osha Roots.
