First Ever Spoken Word Gig!
I recently performed at a spoken word & music event in Tallinn, Estonia for the very first time! It was in a pretty quirky speakeasy bar in the city centre, and was full of a bunch of interesting people. It was fantastic to hear poetry, stories, and music from people from around the world. At some point towards the end of the evening (and after I had consumed a couple of beers) I decided to try it out myself.
It was a slightly nerve-wracking experience, as I hadn't performed on stage since 2015, and I had never performed poetry before either. Luckily, the crowd were kind and receptive, and I felt comfortable almost immediately. I was also able to get some photos and videos from the event (which are available below).
All in all, I had a good time, and would definitely do it again. I highly recommend it to anyone who has never done it before. I was skeptical and had my doubts about it at first, but I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the event was.
