the spirit to write a joyful song

by Nate Harpel

The journey from talented young gun with promise to local hero is a sketchy road at best, even when you may or may not be the most talented musician the world has yet to produce.  In a town not unlike this one, a man with a guitar struggles with love and liquor, drugs and death, fucking up and freaking out, and other alliterative phrases.  Just remember, and there are other ways of losing your soul than just selling it to the devil. A sort of folk-rock ballad opera.

Spirit will have a work in progress reading as part of the fertile grounds festival on january 24, 2010.

there will be a series of readings and workshops with spirit over the summer of 2011.  check back for more info!
