january beginnings and endings - January 5, 2015
happy new year, friends!
as one of my favorite poets, t.s. eliot, once wrote, "what we call the beginning is often the end. and to make an end is to make a beginning. the end is where we start from." ain't that the truth?
2015 started off with a bang for me, as i was thrilled to play bass for my husband MARK ALLEN BERUBE at the release party for his fantastic new record, STICKY, this past sunday. so many friends turned out to make the event a success, and i managed not to blush too hard when he said nice things about me from the stage…
i've scheduled just two shows this month, the first of which marks a bittersweet end: this friday, january 9, i'll be celebrating the end of a concert series i've been involved with since 2012, 2ND FRIDAYS AT 2 MOON. it's been an absolute pleasure to curate this monthly gathering of songwriters and listeners with my friends WOOL&GRANT, but we're bringing it to a close with this one last smashbang hootenanny party. then, on saturday, january 24, i'll be at DANBURY ARTS IN ACTION for a solo concert in support of their wonderful youth mentoring program.
in other news, i'm happy to tell you that i'll be heading to the studio soon to begin a new collaborative CD with my NO FUSS AND FEATHERS ROADSHOW cohorts! we've been traveling a great deal together lately, and lots of folks have asked us about a recording. we're all jazzed up about this project, and have so much fun together that we just had to oblige! also, we'll be touring to FL and TX in the spring, so watch for show dates!
wishing every one of you a happy, healthy, and productive new year. may you build foundations under the castles of your dreams...
