10th Annual Free Jazz Poetry Concert "Global English"

City of Asylum Pittsburgh presents its 10th Annual Jazz Poetry Concert on September 6, 2014, from 7:45 – 9:45. To celebrate their tenth year, City of Asylum has invited back favorite performers—based on audience surveys—from the first nine years. Except for performing at Jazz Poetry Concert, none have ever performed in Pittsburgh before. For the first time, City of Asylum has invited only English-language poets, in order to showcase how English sounds and is transformed as a global language.

Performers include:

- Oliver Lake Big Band (first appearance 2010)

- Kei Miller (Jamaica, 2007)

- Gerald Stern (U.S./Pittsburgh, 2008)

- TJ Dema (Botswana, 2012)
