The Dream Journal – February 2017
We’re just back from a very busy trip to Florida. While we love New England, we have to admit it was rather nice to spend 10 days in short sleeves and sandals in the middle of January! We tried to bring a bit of the warmth back north with us, but it seems to have gotten lost somewhere around New Jersey. So we’ll just have to warm things up with a bit of music.
After its own little winter break, the Serendipity Songwriters Session is back! Come out to the Serendipity Cafe in Maynard MA on Wednesday, February 8th. We are thrilled to have Beth DeSombre and Christina Thompson Lively as our guests. Beth has been guest hosting for us on occasion this past year when we’ve been traveling, so we haven’t had much opportunity to hear her play. Chris & Meredith Thompson’s song, Clearwater, started us down the songwriting path. Our topic this month, chosen by our December audience, is “One Last Drink”. Stop by, have dinner, enjoy some tasty baked goods, listen to wonderful original music by terrific songwriters, and help choose the topic for March’s musicians. The music runs 7:30-9:30pm. Many thanks to Laura & Johnny at Serendipity Cafe for all their support!
Sunday, February 12th brings us back to the Common Street Spiritual Center in Natick, MA for their Sunday Circle. Each Sunday at 10:30am, the Common Street community gathers for inspiration, connection, and worship. “We also share our wisdom and encourage one another to develop spiritual practices that lead to spiritual growth, expanded consciousness, acceptance, and a more loving way of life.” We are honored to join the community and share our music as part of the circle. Please join us!
The Bolton Public Library Unplugged open mike at the Bolton Public Library in Bolton, MA returns from its winter break on Tuesday, February 21st. It starts with a 2-song formal first round, then we pull the chairs into a circle and jam until we’re out of songs, out of steam, or tossed out by the cleaning crew! Got a new song about love? Want to share a poem about groundhogs? Or just looking for a relaxing break from the craziness of the world? Stop by! Music starts at 7pm. Piano players — please contact us directly if you wish to play, and we’ll be sure to bring a keyboard.
The Yukon Quest is a 1000 mile dogsled race between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska. The 34th annual Yukon Quest kicks off this Saturday, February 4th with 21 mushers and dog teams from around the world. The race takes anywhere from 9 to 15 days to complete. You can find out more and follow the teams at http://www.yukonquest.com. In honor of the determination of the teams and the dedication of the hundreds of volunteers that make the race happen, we offer our song, Yukon Quest, for free download for the duration of the race.
Our CDs Seeking and Simple Grace are available from us at our shows, on our website, or you can find them at CD Baby, iTunes and most other online music stores. Seeking has been specially mastered for iTunes, which gives higher fidelity over standard iTunes recordings.
