The Dream Journal – April 2018


We just got back from a weekend of gigs down on the MA/NH border to find that most of the snow in our fields has melted out, several of the massive snow piles the plow created are gone, and the rest are hardly up to our knees. It’s sure looking like spring out there! Mind you, we still have our snow tires on — this *is* New England, after all! But we’re certainly ready to come out of hibernation.

We’re back in Keene, NH this Saturday, April 7th at The Farm Cafe in the Toadstool Bookshop. Amy & Skip serve up fantastic meals and decadent baked goods, all vegetarian or vegan and gluten free; the bookshop serves up a great collection of books; we’ll serve up some uplifting music to all who come by. We’ll be there 3-5pm.

The next Serendipity Songwriter Session at the Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, MA is Wednesday, April 11th. Our guest songwriters this month are Pat Kenneally and Esther Friedman. The theme for this month’s session, chosen at random by us because our March showcase was postponed due to weather issues, is “Never Again”. Come have dinner and dessert, enjoy some wonderful original music, and help us choose the theme for next month’s songwriters! Music runs 7:30-9:30pm. We’ll have Doug Farrell and Rob Lytle back later in the year to make up for our snow day in March.

Our next online Concert Window concert is Tuesday, April 17th. Want to get out to a midweek concert, but don’t have the energy after a long day at work to drive to the venue and back? Pour yourself a libation, curl up on the couch, tune in to and enjoy live music streaming into your living room. We play 8-9pm Eastern time.

This month we bring you a live video of Dan’s song, Quiet Moments. He wrote it in memory of his dad, who died right before we started songwriting. The video came from The Hearing Room in Lowell, MA back in December 2017.

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.

As always, you can find additional schedule information on our website, For more frequent news updates and information, check out our Facebook fan page and follow us on Twitter (@danandfaith).

Spring is almost here! Time to get out of the house, get active, speak up, sing out! And stopping in to support your local music venues is always appreciated.
