For the duration of the #4thSpaceReruns series, 4TH SPACE is bringing you a curated selection of live streams from engaging past events every week as part of CU at Home. Join us via our Facebook page very Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. for a new #4thSpaceRerun!
Established and organized by poet and musician Ian Ferrier, The Words and Music Show has been a constant cultural haven for a wide variety of performers living in and visiting Montreal. In October 2019, 4TH SPACE hosted The Words and Music Show for the launch of its digital archive. This event celebrated the show’s continuing legacy with the launch of the online curation of the audio recordings and images that document the performances as they occurred from 2000 to the present.
In keeping with the legacy of W&M, the event opened with poetry and music performances, featuring Montreal-based word artists Catherine Kidd and Kaie Kellough, who have contributed significantly to W&M over the years, and whose past performances are captured in the archive.
