Laugh, have fun and enjoy an evening of uniquely Bermudian poetry, spoken word and music, a gathering of generations of artists inspired by the beauty and complexity of their island home.

The production celebrates a broad cross-section of Bermudian poets and spoken word artists performing Jerry’s work as well as their own in a continuation of his inspiration and passion. Featured artists include: Chris Astwood, Kim Dismont Robinson, Patrika Ferguson, Nick Hutchings, Debbie Lombardo, Paul Maddern, Tiffany Paynter, Ajamu (Andra Simons), Alan Smith, Yesha Townsend, Adum Reb (Keamon Woolaston). Jerry was a visionary and a free spirit. He was a fixer and a thinker, a dreamer and a doer, a poet and storyteller, a farmer and conservationist. He is widely known for his collection of local vernacular poetic essays, Oh Gawd, I Vish Dis Ig’rance Vud Stop! The performance is an opportunity to explore the merging of deeper Bermudian cultural experiences into the rich 43-year legacy of the Bermuda Festival.

Presented in collaboration with BEST, a charity whose values and objectives were closely aligned with those of Jeremy Frith.
