The Dream Journal – September 2019


We’re kicking back after the long Labor Day weekend with two outdoor shows in Keene, NH and Cooperstown, NY, thanking our lucky stars that the weather stayed good for both, and watching Hurricane Dorian slam the poor Bahamas. If you’re anywhere near the path of this monster, we hope you’re taking it seriously! Up in our little northeast corner of the US, hurricanes are a rarity, a fact for which we are infinitely thankful. It’s one of many things we like about living in New England.

Another wonderful thing about New England is the wonderful farmers markets we have here. The Collinsville Farmers Market in Collinsville, CT is a particularly lively market, and we’ll be playing there this coming Sunday, September 8th. We’re hoping the rooster, Joe Cocker, will be back to add his unique harmonies to our music! The market runs 10am to 1pm.

On Wednesday, September 11th, we’re back at the Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, MA for the Serendipity Songwriter Showcase. Our musical guests this month are Rich Eilbert and Bernice Lewis. This month’s song topic, as chosen by August’s audience, is “Just cut it in half“. Stop in, have a tasty dinner and dessert, and enjoy some wonderful original songs! Plus, you get to help choose the song topic for October’s musicians. Music runs 7:30-9:30pm.

What do you get when your local general store decides to put in a pizza oven? You get Pizza Night at the Acworth Village Store in South Acworth, NH! And on Saturday, September 14th, you’ll also get us playing music. The good folks at the Village Store create delicious pizzas in their wood-fired oven from 5:30-7:30pm. BYOB or pick up a beverage inside the store, and we’ll keep you entertained while you enjoy your pizza.

We’ve lost track of the number of times we’ve been on DJ Nick Noble‘s show, The Folk Revival, on WICN-FM in Worcester, MA. Nick is a delightful host, and has been very supportive of all of us local musicians over the years. We’re back on the air with Nick on Thursday, September 26th. Tune in in the Worcester, MA area at 90.5FM, or go to and click on “Listen Live Online” in the top right corner (if you don’t see “Listen Live Online“, bring the site up in the Chrome browser). Nick’s show runs 7-10pm EDT.

Late September brings us near the end of farmers market season. We’ll be playing at the Keene Farmers Market in Keene, NH on Saturday, September 28th. The market runs 9am-1pm. Stop by and stock up on late-season vegetables, tasty breads, and maybe consider some early holiday shopping with the crafters. We’ll supply the tunes!

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.
