Marc Beaudin (Poet) Marc Beaudin (Poet)

Marc Beaudin is an award-winning poet, theatre artist and bookseller living in the writer’s haven of Livingston, Montana, dubbed “America’s finest open air asylum” for multiple reasons. His work has been anthologized in Poems Across the Big Sky Volume II, An Elk River Books Reader and Unearthing Paradise: Montana Writers in Defense of Greater Yellowstone (of which he is a co-editor). His latest book, Vagabond Song: Neo-Haibun from the Peregrine Journals, was called “a jazzy, freewheeling, rollicking road trip into the beating heart of the Eternal Now” by Montana Quarterly. A frequent performer of poetry and spoken word, Beaudin has worked and recorded with a variety of jazz and rock musicians at venues across the country, as well as on several public and independent radio stations. He believes the Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D is more powerful than all the guns, smokestacks and coal trains in the world.

“Vagabond Song unfolds like an impressionistic series of trip logs reminiscent of Kerouac and blending elements of hippie folk pioneer Richard Brautigan with the broad quest also shared by Ken Kesey for discovering both sturdiness and serenity within the parameters of America’s remote landscapes. The work is as ambitious as it is fluid.” –The Review Magazine

“This is a volume you can dig into and find treasure.” –Big Sky Journal

“A vade mecum of the soul, Vagabond Song leaves one hungry for more books by this author.” –Pressenza International News Agency

“Such a damn good read it was impossible to put down once begun and then left me enraged because when it was finished it was finished

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
