Shows Next 3 Weeks!!

Hello!     Only days ago, in a copper mine deep below dusty Butte, Montana, I was among ghosts and detonations, feeling the dance of human frailty and brute-force.  In Winnipeg, I peered from an arena stage to the see the thousands of people singing together.  I wept as I walked a new-mown hayfield because I choose constant travel, but I...

Midwinter reaches quiet arms around this hemisphere. While injustice and deprivation tear at our human-ness, the earth seems to whisper 'hush now...patience, little being'. Singing with tune-yards has kept alive the vow I made to myself in writing "How Can I Cry" - a vow to 'sing for all the souls who do not complain'. I love the fierceness of Merrill's music. And some of songs I get to sing with Solas share that ferocity...a cry against inequality & injustice. And I love participating in the singing tradition of lifting each other up by singing together. I feel grateful to the thousands of singers who have shared in my music this year. I have brave new plans for VOCO, harmony singing and stomp for this New Year, nearly upon us!! Thank you all for singing and listening with your open heart.
