BIG SKY — David Mason and Tami Haaland are set to present a program called “Poet Laureate Double-Header and Poets Congress,” at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on March 8 with guest musician Martha Scalan.

As the Colorado poet laureate, Mason is attempting to visit local communities for readings, each time recruiting local poets to take the stage alongside him. Mason’s visit to WMPAC will include local guests, including Haaland, a Montana State University Billings professor and Montana’s poet laureate.

The two poets will present a perspective-shifting talk about words with Scanlan, an award-winning songwriter and performer. WMPAC is located on the campus of Ophir School in Big Sky’s Gallatin Canyon. The show features custom hors d’oeuvres catered by Bucks T-4 and a cash bar.

Tickets range from $15 to $25. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. The Poets Congress is presented in collaboration with the Arts Council of Big Sky. For more information and/or tickets, go to http://www.warrenmillerpac.org/.
