Night of Grief & Mystery Concert ~ Denver, CO - Tivoli Turnhalle - Denver

Sunday, November 17, 20197:00pm-9:00pm---Friends are forged on the dark road headed out of town.And so we head there again, sojourning across the continent in the name of psychic sanity and spiritual resolve in these most troubled and troubling of times.These are nights in which love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone. These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. What would you call such a thing? We call them Nights of Grief & Mystery. https://orphanwisdom.com/nights-of-grief-and-mystery/Part poetry, part lamentation, part book reading, part ribaldry, part concert, part lifting the mortal veil and learning the mysteries there...that’s what’s in store. Watch the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YLWZYlVr6E&t=37sThe doors are pried at night’s end, and still many linger and can’t leave or won’t, and there is something like victory in the air, and a weary, luminous midnight rumour that, people heretofore unknown to each other, can still join for the sake of the young among them and for the world entrusted to them, and that the Mercies count us kin, and that wonder is the currency of the Gods.---What people are saying about the show:Such a beautiful, deeply soul stirring evening. Thank you. ~ JIDon’t miss this. It’s transporting! May I just say “Wow...” ~ IHLucky, lucky me. . .got to see this show in Minneapolis tonight. For two hours, I was at the center of the universe, with dozens of others who walked in as strangers and left as fellow travelers. ~ AR, MinneapolisDeep gratitude for the hours of story medicine, contemplation, laughter, musical tingles, and feeling-in-the-moment, Stephen and co. I still smile about that night at very random moments!! Love from Portland, ~ OR., PortlandSimply amazing evening in Victoria ... laughter, tears, smiles, shivers, and more tears. ~ JC VictoriaThe Seattle show was so fantastic! ~ DG, SeattleNights of Grief & Mystery testifies to a storyteller’s, a singer’s, and a kick-ass band’s willingness to wonder how our corner of the world has come to be as it is, and how we might best serve its needs. One side effect? This bravura performance magically elicits a similar willingness in ourselves, perhaps unexpectedly so, making us somehow prone to one of Stephen Jenkinson’s road-tested observations: “Grief is a way of loving what has slipped from view. Love is a way of grieving that which has not yet done so.” The mid-wife of all this is the troupe’s no doubt hard-earned but marvelous ability to hang by the thread of improvisation & spontaneity, by the grace of all the Gods & assorted Tricksters. ~ MH---Tour Video Trailer: https://youtu.be/SN1Bi9DmDpcFor updated tour dates and locations: https://orphanwisdom.com/nights-of-grief-and-mystery/#buy-ticketsVisit gregoryhoskins.com ---About the CD: It is powerful business. The recordings from previous nights turned into something like dry lightning, like something somebody who wasn’t there might want to know about. The band went back to business, made offerings to the dance hall Gods, gave them their proper seat at the proceedings, brought all the road-tested learning to bear, tuned the whole thing up. What you have in your hand is something like thunder and a far-off storm, faithful to those strange, merciful nights.

He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, the award-winning book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. He is the subject of a National Film Board of Canada documentary, Griefwalker. He brings teachings of the ramshackling kind, about honour and grace under pressure, about how we might learn our darkening times. His new book, Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble, wonders about elderhood in an age of age-intolerance, and about the withering of the World Tree.About Gregory HoskinsOften described with epithets like "best kept secret", "unsung", and "an artist that has flown under the radar", Gregory Hoskins' career spans 11 recordings over 27 years and record deals on 3 continents. Hoskin's lyrics and voice tend to break and bind at the same time, and his songs are steeped in the drama of living awake, with one foot in the sorrow of it all and the other in the beauty of it all. He does it over propulsive grooves, brooding electric guitar work and rich sonics. Material from his most recent release, Vain + Alone, is featured in the Nights of Grief and Mystery.
