Sonnet Man at Southern Shakes


The Sonnet Man will be in Tallahassee, Florida to perform at the Word of South Literary Music Festival on Sunday, April 10 and at the Southern Shakespeare Festival Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16 at the Capital City Amphitheater at Cascades Park.

While in Tallahassee, The Sonnet Man is also scheduled to perform school assemblies during the week at the FAMU Developmental Research School and Godby High School.

The Sonnet Man will be performing his signature style, Hip Hop Shakespeare Fusion, to festival goers of the Word of South Festival on Sunday, April 10, making The Bard’s immortal words exciting and fun. The Sonnet Man will also make special guest performances at the Southern Shakespeare Festival on Friday, April 15, and Saturday, April 16, with his hip-hop renderings of Shakespeare’s sonnets.

Student volunteers from 50Large, an organization collaborating with at-risk students in Leon County Schools, will also be spending personal one-on-one time with The Sonnet Man throughout the Southern Shakespeare Festival, in addition to watching the Sonnet Man perform on Friday and Saturday.

The Sonnet Man is thrilled to return for his second year at the Southern Shakespeare Music Festival. It was his favorite festival to be involved in last year and he can’t wait to be back in Tallahassee.
