A Stirring Tribute: Carmen Nickerson reads Solari’s “Meditation for my Country” During 9/11 Concert
Singer-songwriter Carmen Nickerson delivers a touching performance of Rose Solari's poem during her No Studios unplugged session
Accomplished singer-songwriter Carmen Nickerson and pianist Kostia Efimov provide an intimate, acoustic set as part of the No Studios unplugged series.
At approximately 42 minutes into the set, Nickerson pauses to acknowledge the date - September 11th - and pulls out a sheet of paper. The poem she reads is Rose Solari's "Meditation for my Country."
Rose Solari’s style continues to evolve as she tackles more difficult poetic concepts. Hear her speak to poetry and song as “gifts,” detail Coleridge’s writing from a sick bed, remark on Frost’s famous “Directive”, and reminisce on Smokey Robinson in this new episode of Rose Reads.
