Music News You Can Use - December 2013

Hello and Happy December.  I am still very much in a November frame of mind actually, visiting with my daughter in Washington DC, prowling the museums and parks.  What a town!!

Here are some musical discoveries for youAnd another.   There is a whole series of these sessions - search for TS5 on Youtube.   Amazing facility and amazing line up of talent !!   (Thanks to Paul Herzoff for getting me started on these.)
My house concert in Penngrove, earlier in November, was a great success; and we raised some money for a very good cause.   I am editing the video now.  I will be posting some highlights later this month, and hopefully get you interested in hosting a house concert to raise money for a cause you are involved in.  House concerts are the best!!

I made a lot of music in November and made some new music friends, in Maui no less!!  (Yes, I've been doing some traveling.)  It was such a treat to stay as a guest of John and Cecelia Bowman at Cecelia's family home in Wailuku.  Their hospitality and that of Cecelia's family was so warm and welcoming.  It was sure hard to leave.

Got some nice gigs coming up in December.   I'll be playing at the Firefly Bistro in South Pasadena on the 11th. The Firefly is a great place and Brad Colerick's Wine and Song Wednesday nights are excellent and well attended.  I am honored!!  I am also honored to be playing at Steve Key's Songwriters At Play shows on the 12th and 13th.  I'll wrap up my gigging at Ruth McGowan's on the 20th. Calendar details below, more info at  If you are out and about at any of these places, it is always great to see you.

Okay, guess I'd better get to the Christmas list and do my part for the economy . . . Hope you have a lovely holiday season, with lots of love and friendship surrounding you.

all the best,
