Local Spotlight: Aimee Mann and Billy Collins

A singer/songwriter and poet laureate are teaming up for an evening of poetry and music in Santa Barbara Thursday night.

Oscar-nominated songwriter and Indie musician Aimee Mann began a collaboration with former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins after the two met at a White House event celebrating the work of American poets.

The New York Times call's Mann, "One of the finest songwriters of her generation."

John Updike says Collins "writes lovely poems,... gently and consistently startling, more serious than they seem."

Their appearance at Campbell Hall Thursday night is likely to entertain and leave you with with plenty to think about.

The evening is sponsored by UCSB Arts & Lectures.
