Happy Fall! Right now I am metaphorically raking leaves as I gather together materials, schedules, artists and publicity for upcoming concert series. I use this analogy because those gorgeous reds, yellows, purples and golds inspire my creativity with their simple beauty and it is so much a part of the process of nature– just as the planning is imperative to the making of good art. And so… I am thankful for it all.
Specifically, I’m excited to be collaborating with guitarist/vocalist Nate Macy on an evening of music to be held at Metolius Friends Church in Central Oregon on Sunday the 28th of October at 6 p.m. We will be sharing original music from our recent album releases encircling the themes of rest and space. We’ll be joined by Noelle Sisk (violin/mandolin) and Nolan Staples (acoustic bass.) There is no cover charge. We really hope that if you live in the area that you will join us!
Central Oregon is one of the places I love most in the world. There’s a certain point when driving Hwy 22 over the Santiam Pass that I have to roll the windows down regardless of the weather because the delicious smell of pine and juniper just make me so happy. It’s been this way for years. I have to add Sisters Coffee Company and the Blackberry Cobbler at Deschutes Brewery to my list and then of course the sweeping views of the Three Sisters, Broken Top and more.
I’m on the verge of being able to report specific details about our upcoming Acoustic Christmas series. I’m excited that we’ll be returning to some wonderful venues and also thrilled to be playing at some brand new ones. We’re moving forward with the live CD from last year’s concert series and I’m so happy about that as it’s been something we’ve wanted to do for so long! So please check back soon and I’ll have much more to report.
Until then, hope that you are enjoying all that the Fall has to offer both visually and as a chance to reflect. Blessings.
