Radio play, Ohio tour and more!

Refreshed and rejuvenated after time in the woods

Hello all – I’m back in New Haven after a wonderful 3-week woodsy retreat in Michigan.  The trees have started to turn, and I hope you feel like I do – invigorated with crisp autumn energy.

Lots of news:  Good things happening, good things to come…

Stay Warm is receiving radio airplay all over the world!
With the help of Tracey Delfino and her crew at Trespass Music, Stay Warm has recently been delivered to folk DJs far and wide.  It’s gratifying to know that this music I created is delighting random new ears.  Here’s a list of radio and web programs that have been playing tracks from Stay Warm.   This is a great time to request my songs on your local radio show.  If your station doesn’t have a copy, let me know and I’ll send one out, or you can steer them to Airplay Direct.

Ohio Tour in mid-October
Please pass the word on to all you know in Ohio – I’ve got a sweet little tour set up for mid-October!  Tour dates are here, including house concerts in Pataskala, Wellington (near Oberlin), Columbus, Peninsula ( a “lay-down-and-listen” relaxation concert with the lovely dulcimer player Jan Hammond), and performing/instructing at the Southeast Ohio Dulcimer Festival in Stewart (near Athens.)  I so look forward to this trip – I kind of have a thing for Ohio-ans!  😉

Concert dates in the Northeast and beyond
New shows are listed on my tour page, with dates in New Haven and Seymour, CT, the Philly area, Baltimore, and my first Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conference in NY.  I’m actively adding more, including travels to further-away regions like the West Coast and the Southeast, so check back.

List of shops carrying my CDs
I’ve posted a list of the wonderful array of shops that carry my CDs.  If you’re in Alaska and want to pick up a copy of Stay Warm, you can buy copies in Anchorage, Talkeetna, Cooper Landing, Palmer, or Fairbanks.  Aurora Borealis is available in many more places in Alaska plus a dulcimer store in Sedona, Arizona.  Of course you can also order/download my CDs via my website store.

Our Alaska property is for sale
10 beautiful acres with a fully renovated log home plus 2 cabins and a carport/barn/workshop (give this link extra time to load slideshows). This was the home of Whole Wheat Radio’s webcast and house concert series.  It’s the perfect place to live your Alaskan dream and run a business, school or retreat center.  And the 48-foot long cathedral ceiling is covered with wild 1980’s folk-art paintings of Alaska … it’s quite a special place!

Thanks, as always for your support.  I hope to see some of you at upcoming concerts.  I promise to sing pretty for you!

Stay Warm,


20 Feet From Stardom

A passionate recommendation:

20 Feet From Stardom is a current documentary about backup singers.  I found this film moving, inspiring and insightful, both for the music story, and as a metaphor for many life aspirations.  (Goosebumps, teary eyes, don’t-I-know-it laughter.)  I’ve seen it twice and would see it again.  I urge you with enthusiasm – if it comes to your area, go!  Here’s a list of cities where it’s playing.


…a dulcimer, a flute, a song, a smile…
