The Dream Journal – March 2020
Here in New Hampshire, the days are getting warmer, and the sun is getting higher in the sky, which means that the most important season of the year has arrived. Yes, that’s right — it’s maple syrup season! Little did we realize when we moved here that we had found Maple Syrup Central. We love to spend March weekends touring the local sugar shacks and tasting their wares. And none of that wimpy light amber stuff for us. We go for the robust dark! Rich maple syrup smell and flavor… mmmm!
We’re not going too far from home during maple season, but with the magic of the internet, you can hear us from wherever you are. Come on over to our Facebook page on Wednesday, March 18th at 8pm Eastern time. You can curl up on your couch, and we’ll bring our music right to you!
We haven’t played down in the south shore of Massachusetts in quite a long time, so we’re looking forward to visiting the Norwell, MA Library on Sunday, March 22nd for an afternoon show. Norwell’s library is under construction, so they’re temporarily housed in Hanover, MA. You can sign up for the show through the library’s website. Music starts at 2pm.
We weren’t sure we’d be back in New England in time for this month’s Serendipity Songwriter Showcase, so Beth DeSombre is hosting this month at Serendipity Cafe in Maynard, MA on Wednesday, March 11th. Last month’s show was postponed to this month due to illness, so Beth is again welcoming Peter Lehndorff and Mark Stepakoff as her guests. The theme for the evening, as chosen by December’s audience, is “Who is left to witness?” Check out the great food and beverages, as well as lots of great original songs. You get to help choose the theme for April’s songwriters, too! Music runs 7:30pm-9:30pm.
We are thrilled that our new album, Then and Now, was ranked #7 on the Folk DJ radio charts for the month of January! Thanks so much to all the DJs who played songs from the CD. If you have a local folk radio show, we’d love it if you would ask the DJ to play our music. If they do, let us know!
Next Sunday we set the clocks ahead here in the US, and early mornings are dark again. If you need some cheering up on those dark mornings, here’s Dan’s song, New Vision, to bring you some hope.
