Talavera, Alex Hieronymus Bogs Literature- Poetry,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Hieronymus Bogs is a one-man troupe whose artistic mission is to create and inspire. Bogs's imaginative approach to musical performance combines elements of poetry, theater, and the visual arts. Garbed in the attire of a traveling pilgrim (a metaphor for the creative journey), Bogs sings his original folk songs accompanied by his banjo, harmonica, bells and foot percussion. He interweaves his performances with short storytelling vignettes and recitations of William Blake, while incorporating simple props like a spool of red ribbon, or a bucket of river rocks to enhance the overall visual experience. His welcoming voice and emotive music are akin to artists like Woody Guthrie and George Harrison who often addressed themes overlooked by many entertainers. With songs like “The Infinite Possibilities of Universal Love” and “The Muse's Welcome,” Bogs's performances are thoughtful and engaging, encouraging viewers to realize the heights of their own creative potential.
