April 17th Concert in Hamden, Connecticut

There’s nothing like a move from Alaska to Connecticut to cause a long hiatus from gigging.  April’s daffodils have inspired me; it’s time to open up again.

I’m giving my first official concert here in CT on Wed, April 17th, 8PM at Best Video in Hamden.

Best Video?  Yes, it’s a video store!  And they offer a delightful listening room venue amidst shelves full of moving pictures.  They also have a coffee-beer-wine bar, and snacks.  You can even buy a pint of gourmet ice cream from the freezer, as well as locally popped kettle corn.  What more do you need to enjoy an evening of music with me?  It’s really a funky, unusual, cheery atmosphere.

If you’re new to my music, this show is just an hour long, so it’s a great intro for the curious.  I’ll tell stories and include songs from my forthcoming new CD Stay Warm, plus a few from Unfinished Houses, and I’ll also spin an on-the-spot improvised flute painting of the northern lights.

If you don’t live in New Haven, but know of someone nearby who might enjoy my music and stories, please share this post with them.  What can they expect?  How ’bout an evening of laughter, whimsy,  insightful observations, and musical expansiveness…
