The Dream Journal – March 2020 Update

Hello!

As with many of our good friends in the music world, we are seeing our schedule melt away in the face of the coronavirus and its social distancing requirements. Sadly, our Sunday, March 22nd show at the Norwell Library is postponed to a future date.

Fortunately, thanks to the magic of the internet, you can still hear us from the safety of your own home! Come on over to our Facebook page this Wednesday, March 18th at 8pm Eastern time, and we’ll do our best to take your mind off pandemics and politics. We’ll be happy to have a virtual chat, and we’ll keep you entertained for a while.

We aren’t sure what next month’s schedule will bring us, but we’ll definitely be back online.

We highly recommend you hunt up your favorite musicians online, drop them a note of support, maybe buy a CD or two. Lots of other folks will be doing online concerts coming up, too. For some folks, the lack of gigs means a lack of income, so reach out and support them as you’re able. If you can, please donate to the American Federation of Musicians Local 1000 (traveling musicians union) Emergency Relief Fund. We are proud members of Local 1000, and are doing everything we can to support our brothers and sisters in song who have lost their income because of cancelled concerts due to the pandemic.

If you want to support us, you can buy one of our albums. Then and Now, Seeking, and Simple Grace are available from us on our website, or you can find them at 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).

Music is powerful stuff, and can help bring us together even as we keep our distance.

The Dream Journal – March 2020

Hello!

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.

We post videos up on YouTube on occasion.  Check out our YouTube page!  If you subscribe to the page, you’ll be notified whenever we post new videos.

Our albums Then and Now, Seeking and Simple Grace are available from us at our shows, on our website, or you can find them at 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).

Music is a force for good in this world. Support live local music!
