JubeFest: Wakefield Brewster and Mocking Shadows
Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium
1415 14 Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2N 1M4, Canada
Jubefest is back for another summer! In January 1999, Wakefield Brewster stepped onto his first stage as a Poet and Spoken Word Artist. Today, he is known as one of Canada’s most powerful Professional Performance Poets. A Black Man raised in Toronto by parents from Barbados, he has resided in Calgary since 2016, and it is in the New West where Wakefield has been able to truly flourish as a Poet and as a Person. After all that the stage has given him, he has discovered other ways that he may repay his beloved Poetry and Arts Communities by performing silently, backstage, for them. Most recently, Wakefield was honoured to be named the City of Calgary's Poet Laureate.
Join us on our outdoor patio as we enjoy the talents of Wakefield Brewster and Mocking Shadows!
