Happy new year ya’ll, ain’t life just grand?  On New Year’s Eve I threw my 2015 date book (yes, I still write things down the old fashioned way) right into the roaring fire pit and watched as 2015 burst into flames and rose away in wisps of smoke.  Very cathartic as 2015 was a bit challenging, but that’s why we’re all here on this planet anyway, to learn and live to the fullest, with the good, the bad and the ugly.  Details really aren’t important if you actually stop to think about it, we’re only here for a blink anyway.  But now, WOW, I am feeling grateful as the planet wakes up, and any challenges thrown at me this year will be met with wisdom and love.  Growing older does have advantages.  The one constant that sees me through…?  Music and more music.  (And meditation… that, too.  That practice is growing as well, but that’s another story that helps songwriting and writing in general.)

Meanwhile, Open Road has been collaborating on some really joyful songs, both lyrically and musically, and we’re going to share all the new ones on February 6th, 2016 in downtown Westport, CT at the Seabury Center.  This is a really cool venue that’s intimate and acoustically very sound.  It's a round stone building next to the Christ and Holy Trinity Church on 45 Church Lane.  We’ll do a 60-minute sest with lots of 3- and 4-part harmony with 3 guitars, percussion of all sorts, and acoustic bass.  Very happy to be rehearsing and sharing with these guys – Scott Weber, Nancy Burger, James Allen and Dan Berg (not pictured).  Please join us if you’re free that night, it’ll be relaxing and very affordable --$10 ticket price (just to cover the sound guy).

I hear the Canaan train blowing, through the back woods tonight, it's not just me you see, that feels a certain knowing...
Original tunes, enjoy!
