Norman and Jeff: Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Howl’

Shetland Jazz Festival, February 14th 2013. Selections from Allen Ginsberg’s ‘HOWL’ performed by Norman Willmore (alto sax) and Jeff Merrifield (poetry). Filmed and edited by Rodrigo Ferrari-Nunes.

This was the first video I made in Shetland. It was an opportunity to learn about editing through the media I was collecting. Ultimately, it shows the intergenerational engagement that is common among Shetland’s music scene participants.

Norman Willmore (alto sax) and Jeff Merrifield (poetry) perform Allen Ginsberg's 'Howl' atthe Bop-Shop, Lerwick.
