Today is a tough day: it's a bad anniversary. Sometimes it's hard to refocus myself on the good, but as I log more and more distance between it and me I find it's getting easier to do. I'm being kind to myself today: I'm listening to Martin Carthy right now with my love and remembering that incredible evening where I got to meet and work sound for that living legend at @clubpassim (and here's the selfie that proves it). My mom reminded me last night that nobody makes it out unscathed -- we have to be there for each other and embrace all the lovely parts of life.💕

Thanksgiving is such a cozy time of year, with families and food, but let's face it...come Saturday you'll want a night off from pretending to listen to Aunt Carroll the third time she tells you about how your cousin's lacrosse team made some finals somewhere in Germany. Oof. Luckily, I've got the perfect panacea for you: come to The @columbustheatre, Jewel of Providence, for a show with Rhode Island's Prodigal Son, Ian Fitzgerald, including a rare appearance of his band Something Else. The @wolffsisters will kick things off, and then I'll play a set supporting my new album with the wonderful Michael Siegel on bass. Doors are at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. And heck, if you can stand it, bring Aunt Carroll, too. Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Wow. Thank you to everyone who sold last night's @clubpassim show out!!!!✨ SOLD OUT!!!! Holy smokes. Thanks to my incredible band (@kathleen.parks, @bradbenskomusic, @johnfaraone, @emilyhavi, @benbakercello, @sssammmosss, and Michael Siegel), to Passim for having us, to @nineathensmusic for all the support, and especially to my partner Ian Fitzgerald for not only opening the night with his beautiful songs, but for standing by my side the entire time I was preparing for the show. We are taking a version of this show on the road to Providence, RI this Saturday at the @columbustheatre. Ian will have his kick-ass band, Something Else, and I'll be there with Michael on bass. This time we'll be joined by @wolffsisters! It'll be a good time. Hope to see you there 💖

TONIGHT: Come celebrate the release of 'Anything Worth Doing' at @clubpassim with me AND MY BAND. Yes, for one fabulous night I have a band, and they are the cat's pajamas. There are some tickets left, but you better snag them quick. I'm told the room is going to be quite cozy. @ianrfitzgerald starts things off with his gorgeously crafted songs and then the band and I hit it.✨ OH, that reminds me... I spent a good portion of last night making limited edition lyric booklets/download cards, so come get 'em while they're hot!! .

Thank you to everyone who listened to and purchased 'Anything Worth Doing' yesterday!!! I am currently searching the Thesaurus for the right word to express this feeling of elation, gratitude, and relief, but nothing is quite cutting it. I will say that I don't need ol' Roget to know that I wouldn't be making music if there weren't ears who wanted to listen to the songs I write. Whether you've given me an encouraging word, bought a CD, or gone to a show of mine, thank you for supporting my music and letting me do this crazy musician thing ♥️ ✨
