Video From Henry Ferrini
Here’s the event that closed out the incredibly successful and stimulating Olson100 Celebration. Hundreds of people came to Gloucester to celebrate Olson’s birthday. Willie Loco Alexander, Alek and Rik Razdan and Dave “doc” Vincent perform Willie’s “the gold” a poem by Charles Olson’s good friend Gloucester Poet Laureate Vincent Ferrini (1913-2007). The tune is from Willie’s award-winning CD, “Vincent Ferrini’s Greatest Hits.” If people like what they hear, they can get Willie’s work at Gloucester Music or Mystery Train.
