We are very saddened to learn of the recent unexpected passing of local poet, musician, and friend, Pat Covert.

Pat had been a member of the local arts community dating back to the poetry readings at the old QE2 in Albany hosted by Tom Nattell. More recently Pat had appeared at the New Age Cabaret, Valentines, and the 2002 Albany Word Fest.

On Monday, October 30, we will be presenting a special Poets Speak Loud tribute to the life and work of Pat Covert at the Lark Tavern with featured poet Deb Bump.
