- We are deeply saddened by the passing of longtime friend and former tour bassist Sean Kelly on September 4th...
- With the fall and winter tour dates being cancelled or switched to streaming events, I am planning to do at least one monthly livestream concert to stay connected around the world. The "Long Nights Livestream Series" begins this month and runs through at least March. We kick it off on Thursday Sept. 16th at 7:30pm EDT - it will be a full show, free but with donations hugely appreciated, and the first two shows happen on my YouTube channel.
Thank you so much for your continued and generous support of my work as we slowly get up and running again - easy one-time or recurring donation options including check by mail all at this link.
You can host a show! The calendar is now growing with actual live in-person performances! If you'd like to host a show, in person or as a Zoom event with farflung family and friends complete with picture show along with a whole bunch of songs and stories done live, let's do it - please drop us a line and we'll make something good happen.
- Treasures in My Chest album and book chronicle a fantastic journey of family discovery, seamlessly blending compelling stories, useful information and helpful DIY tips into a richness of connection and experience - a great gift for your family direct from the artist.
I'm glad you are here, and I hope I can bring you a little comfort and entertainment in these troubled times.
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 25 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!
