Ah yes, here we go again . . . Christmas.
We had a blast up at WOMR on Monday, December 19, 2016 when Bob Weiser, host of the Old Songs' Home Radio Show, welcomed a gaggle of local musicians to come sing some songs of the season. Among the fine songwriters and musicians present were Kathy Phipps, Ric Drost, and Edmund Robinson, along with Heather Sherburne Swanson, and Kim Moberg, pictured with me below. You can listen to the podcast on Radio Free America for two weeks in case you missed it!
I also had the honor of performing with my friend Monica Rizzio, Cape Cod's own Washashore Cowgirl, at her Christmas show on Wednesday, December 21st. The house was packed and she served up the Christmas cheer with a smile on her face and that signature twang in her voice as we sang Mary together. It was heavenly.
Now that solstice has passed, I should be taking advantage of these extra minutes of daylight each day by shopping or wrapping or baking, but no, not me. I'm writing. Because it's what I do. And I plan to do a lot of it this winter. I have simplified my schedule, so while you won't have as many opportunities to catch me around town, you will be hearing some brand new tunes when you do.
You will still find me hosting the songwriter circle and open mic
at O'Shea's Olde Inne in West Dennis every other Monday
January 9th & 23rd & February 6th & 20th
The circle runs from 7:00 - 8:00, open mic runs from 8:00 - 11:00
