Beth Wood has long been loved as a lyricist and folk musician. She is a powerful songwriter with an equally powerful voice, who has won about every prize and award one can win in the singer-songwriter realm. Now she brings the magic of her lyricism to poetry. And not everyone can make that transition. But she has most certainly done it. Beth has the gift of storytelling, and she has it to the point that it doesn't matter what form or genre she employs. Kazoo Symphonies, with chapters on nature, life, love, and growing up, is, simply put, great storytelling. And it's worth every page.
