Welcome

Kathleen Healy is a hard-working musician & songwriter living on Cape Cod. She draws from her experience of living and raising a family near the beach for many of her songs. Some say saltwater runs through her veins. Kathleen writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice.  She admits to being a live music junkie but is currently not seeking treatment for her addiction. #saltwatersongwriter BMI/FAI member

Still Summer  

Okay, okay, so it's officially autumn. But I'm just not feelin' it! As I wrote in a recent song, "I still have my flip flops on, summer's fadin' but it isn't gone, yeah I still have my flip flops on."

I'm having a quiet fall, and enjoying the slower performance schedule. Watching the harvest moon rise over Sandy Neck beach as I was getting ready for my feature set at Circle By the Sea was definitely a highlight. Thanks to Leona for hosting a fabulous night of music and community. 

Last night I had the pleasure of featuring at opening night of the South Shore Folk Music Club's 41st year. Meaghan Casey opened, the open mic talent was superb, and I got to sing a few songs with my friend Todd Nickerson of Sparrow Blue. It was a lovely evening filled with great live music. 

I'm looking forward to fall with lots of opportunities to catch me doing some solo original gigs promoting my new CD Embracing the Journey. Come find me!Thursday, September 26, Mediator Fellowship Open Mic Feature, Providence, RI, hosted by Don Tassone. 7:30 - 10:30 p.m.

Of course we have the Vinegrass Music Festival coming up at Truro Vineyards on Sunday, September 29 - a fabulous line-up this year - make sure to grab your tickets! Proceeds go to fund sustaining scholarships awarded to Cape Cod high school graduates pursuing a career in music and attending an accredited 4-year college. And you'll still find me hosting monthly open mics on the first Monday of the month at O'Shea's Olde Inne and various and sundry Wednesdays at Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Our feature performer from 6:30 - 7:15 at Harvest Open Mic on Wednesday, September 25th is singer/songwriter Doug Farrell from New Hampshire. 

Our October 7th song circle prompt at O'Shea's is "Birthday or Christmas party at the old folks home." That oughtta make for some interesting tunes . . . 

Okay, this is me, signing off for now. And remember - don't let the fall bring you down - as Larry used to say, "keep a song in your heart."

peace, love, &  music
