Falling Into Summer's End 

Hello, friends!  

There's so much going on, I hardly have time to write... and since a picture is worth a thousand words (or at least the number of words that fit on the picture), here goes...

Baying at the Moon in August 

Happy August, friends!  Checking in just before I head off to Falcon Ridge Folk Festival... maybe I'll see some of you there?

Outside of Brooklyn, Falcon Ridge is the place I feel most at home. Seriously. And this weekend, I'll get to play my songs in a number places there:

  • The Lounge Stage, Thursday 7:55PM, in-the-round with Steve Mayone and Cassandra House;
  • Emerging Artist Showcase, about 2PM Friday afternoon (this is where it all began for Red Molly, and I feel super-privileged to get to do it…

HOT HOT HOT 

Hooray!  It's festival season!  That means it's HOT HOT HOT for me, and not just in the literal sense...

Festival-goers in the Northeast can find me at two festivals in July, one in August, and one in September:

July 13, I'll be playing the 9PM slot on the River Stage at Black Potatoe Music Festival in Clinton, NJ.  

July 29, I'll be swapping songs with my dear friends MILES & MAFALE to open for the great TOM RUSH at Huntington Folk Festival in Huntington, NY.

summertime shivers 

only a handful of days 'til the close of the academic year for our middle-schooler and his fellow students here in NYC, and the sense of anticipatory joy the kids feel is contagious.  the attitude in brooklyn seems a bit lighter these days, even among usually stony-faced grownups.  the days are longer, the sun is stronger, and we go about with a spring in our step and sometimes even wish a pleasant "good morning" to our neighbors...

for me, summertime means festival time!  i've got a handful of dates on…

spring! sort of... 

Hooray, it's Spring! Well, sort of... 

Be that as it may, no matter what the weatherfolk say, I'm calling it Spring because it's April and April means I'm back out on the road again in earnest, playing SEVEN shows in the Northeast this month -- two with NO FUSS AND FEATHERS and five solo -- and I am really, really excited about it! 

I'll be playing lots of songs from my brand-new record, SHIVER, and will surely have plenty of copies on hand at every single show. Click HERE to find details on where and…

march news 

today is the first of march, and that means i am now the mother of a twelve-year-old.  which is absolutely blowing my mind.  the soulful-eyed little bundle who arrived on a frigid afternoon back in 2006 is now a dancing, singing, songwriting, video game-playing, book-loving sixth-grade math whiz who showers me with love and amazes me every single day.  all of you more experienced parents who told me -- back when he was a squiggling infant and i was a sleep-deprived, guitar-playing hot mess -- that time…
