Poetry and Music with host SR Duncan

Featured recordings from:

Dirk Michener and Travis Catsull started playing New York City style experimental country music in 2002 on a balcony in Denton, TX. Naming themselves after the Pacific Northwest's most famous poet, Charles Potts, seemed to make perfect sense. After playing tons of campfires, house parties, mexican food restaurants and then a W. Coast tour the Windmill Band brought in new members and instruments. Now, their multi-harmonics are a blissed out spectacle of working man's country that never cease to intrigue and entertain. Funny, thought provoking and blatantly honest, their audience includes bikers, poets, folk enthusiasts, old people, indie rock fags and screaming drunk girls.

SR Duncan is a Vancouver based poet and host of Wax Poetic. He was involved in the emerging slam poetry scene in the 90s in Vancouver.
