Welcome to my website! I'm glad you are here, and I hope I can bring you a little comfort and entertainment in these troubled times.
- Please join me and a lot of talented friends here in Virginia this weekend - the 26th Annual Mountville Folk Festival kicks off via live video to the world Saturday June 20th at 4pm EDT - I love it that you can come here to visit in person without leaving home! (Click here for some general tips to optimize your livestream viewing.)
- I'm doing some regular free online performances as well, including my new video series of "Treasures Livestreaminars" about getting started on your family history at my YouTube channel - next up June 27th, special for Father's Day this month.
- Some thoughts on Supporting Each Other in Times of Crisis
- In spite of the scary and unprecedented situation, I've been doing what I usually do when times get difficult - practicing gratitude. I've shared some thoughts and appreciations in "A Week of Gratitude" at the Blog.
See the trailer for Treasures in My Chest, then come get the album and book in your favorite format..
Of course there is music here - stream any song from any CD or download, watch concert videos, and even read lyrics. If words are what you enjoy, there are Essays and shorter Blog posts, plus some of my poems as well. And of course, lots of tools to make the work of presenters, publicists and journalists as easy as possible. Have you ever been to a house concert? Please let me know if you can't find what you need.
If you like what you hear and see, please tell someone! There is no big entertainment conglomerate running this operation. For some 20 years now I've managed to coax a livelihood out of this life in music largely by word of mouth, hopefully by bringing my very best work to the stage and studio every time. I'm grateful to each and every person who has taken the time to turn others on to my work, or helped bring me to a stage or school in their community.
I'd welcome your support - the best way to stay in touch is to subscribe to my monthly E-Zine (email newsletter) "A Storytender's Journey," and download a whole album of free songs just for signing up. Every page here is easily shareable by a variety of means. Here are some ways that you can join me, little and large.
Most of all, thanks for visiting!
