The Dream Journal – May 2019
We are back home in New England after 10 weeks on the road. We’re incredibly grateful to all the folks we’ve visited with, met and played for on this trip. Over 9000 miles, 30 states, and a ton of photographs later, we’ve come back just in time to watch our two apple trees blossom. We’ve been living here for more than 2 years now, and this will be the first time we’ve been home for apple blossom time. We can’t wait!
It will be great to get back down to Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, MA this coming Wednesday, May 8th for the Serendipity Songwriter Showcase. Our guest songwriters this month are Chuck Williams and Carolyn Waters. Highly likely there will be collaboration! This month’s song topic, as chosen by April’s audience, is “Black Hole“. Stop by, listen to some great original songs, eat tasty food, and help choose the song topic for June’s songwriters. Music runs 7:30-9:30pm. Thanks to Beth DeSombre for hosting last month!
Slightly closer to home, we’re back at the Farm Cafe in the Toadstool Bookshop in Keene, NH on Saturday, May 18th. You’ll find lots of cool books, Skip’s wonderful vegetarian/vegan dishes, Amy’s decadent vegan & gluten free baked goods, and some music from us to enjoy it all by! We play 2:30-4:30pm.
Can’t make it to one of our local shows this month, and have a reasonably decent internet connection? Then you can kick back and relax in your own living room while we play for you via ConcertWindow! Just go to https://www.concertwindow.com/danandfaith from 8-9pm Eastern Time on Monday, May 20th, snuggle up in your PJs, and enjoy the show. You can tune in from anywhere in the world
Part of what motivated us to get out on the road and travel the country was losing many good friends in a short amount of time. We realized this life is precious, and we should live it to the fullest. Faith’s song, Pictures On The Wall, is dedicated to those friends, and also to recent losses: Lee Villaire, Lynn King and Rob Ayres. You all live on in our hearts.
As always, you can find additional schedule information on our website, https://www.danandfaith.com. For more frequent news updates and information, check out our Facebook fan page and follow us on Twitter (@danandfaith).
We hope that you are lucky enough to have places near you that support live music, regardless of whether the musicians are from right next door or from many miles away. Please support these wonderful venues!
