A couple things we are doing, together and independently…that we thought you would like to know…
We are opening another show for Peter Yarrow..this month..on the 27th at the Hopkins Center in MN www.hopkinsartscenter.com. A beautiful hall, and..we are thrilled to be getting back to MN again…and to be playing with Peter again! ..BUT..it is nearly sold out already…so if you want to attend, please get in touch with them ASAP!!
This Friday, April 12th……David will be doing a rare solo set, opening for Joe Crookston at the Greenwood Coffeehouse in Ann Arbor. Joe is a remarkable young artist, and this is his first show in Michigan! I think you will be moved and amazed and SOOOO glad you came to this show!! Check him out here: http://joecrookston.com
Please come welcome Joe to our beautiful state…you will be glad you did!
Saturday, April 13th…we both will be in Flint, MI, doing a fundraiser for and at the UU Church http://www.uuflint.org Flint..we ALWAYS have a special time here :-)..a great community, a great cause.
On Thursday May 2 we WILL be in two places at the same time!
Michael will be doing the annual tribute to Pete Seeger at the Ark in Ann Arbor.
www.theark.org. This is always an amazing and delightful show, with the stage full of incredible artists, celebrating the life and times…and especially the music, of folk music’s living legend, Pete Seeger. The same night, David will be in Flint doing another solo opener, this time for good friend Don White. http://www.flintfolkmusic.org/
Don needs to be granted Michigan citizenship, he has played here so often, and is so beloved. BUT….I don’t know that the folks in and around Flint know him, which is why I hope you will come to the show if you can. Don is one of THE funniest performers you will ever have the pleasure of seeing!!! AND..a great performer, writer and person. Really…he is NOT to be missed if there is any way at all you can make it!!
then..May 4 & 5…The Central Ohio Folk Festival outside of Columbus OH. We love this festival, and love this community. This year will be bitter sweet, because great friend and folk mover/shaker/maven and she who must be obeyed…Nancy Cline Bailey, passed away this week. What a fine spirit she was..and still is, leaving a legacy of joy and love and celebration…and this wonderful folk festival. She was one of the great ones in the folk music community of ours, so sing her a song to carry her along, even if you never had the pleasure of meeting her. ..she was, and will always be, family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Fred.
A somber note to end this missive. I can hear Nancy saying..move along…live and love and sing…just what we are going to do. We hope to see you soon.
A blessing on you all. David, and Michael
