Mitch Rayes was born in Detroit. For years he worked as a professional outfitter in the jungles of Chiapas, Mexico. During the 1990's, he was influential in the developing Albuquerque poetry scene as a founder of the poetry non-profit Flaming Tongues, as editor of the Tongue newsletter, and as producer of several Albuquerque Poetry Festivals. He also has a long history of musical collaborations with area poets, both live and on recordings. Mitch will bring his guitar and read from new work drawn from his Mexican experiences.
