My goal is to foster authentic human connection through music. Concerned for the health of our world and our democracy, I find hope in the connections we make within our communities, where our resilience and our caring for one another are made real. I’m grateful for my busy schedule of community-oriented gigs, listed here categorized by type: general, abolitionist songs, church, special audiences (nursing homes, etc.), Vintage Grange Songs, and Songs of Women’s Suffrage.
In that spirit, I’d like to highlight my upcoming performance of Vintage Grange Songs. The Grange is an egalitarian, nonpartisan fraternal organization founded in the wake of the Civil War to advance the interests of farming communities. It has a rich heritage of song, with a number of songbooks published starting in 1874. I love to share their music celebrating agriculture, rural life, and the pursuit of the common good. Please join me Saturday, July 9, 7 PM, at the Newfield Community Church, 637 Water St./Rte 11, Newfield, ME. Pay what you can – Come as you are! I’ll be singing my heart out and playing my accordion, autoharp, harpeleik, ukulele, and the church’s lovely Steinway B piano.
