“A flower blossoms for it’s own joy”
This quote also describes how I feel about writing songs and making art! I believe that artists create for the beauty and joy of creating then release it out in to the world to the find the hearts that need it.
My third recording project “The Seven Fires Prophecy: Suite for Humanity” is in its final stages, preparing to spread its wings and fly out to the world in search of its listeners.
What began a year and a half ago as a goal of self education has grown into a work of story-telling art that I am excited to share! The suite of songs help to educate listeners about this very important and relevant legend that has been orally passed from generation to generation.
The official release date is scheduled for August 11, 2023 - the birthday of my late mother.
We are currently in the promotion phase, planning and strategizing the best way to get the music out to the ears that are open to hearing this story in song.
I am so fortunate to once again be working with Hudson Harding Music for radio distribution to Folk Alliance International (FAI) and North American College & Community Radio (NACC)!
And, I’m SUPER excited about my new partnership with SJF PR for my press campaign!
In addition, there are TWO CD Release Concerts scheduled to introduce “The Seven Fires Prophecy: Suite for Humanity” in full, each show with a full band.
I hope to see you at one or both shows!
The first will be on my home turf on Cape Cod at West Parish of Barnstable Congregational church in West Barnstable, MA. The lineup will include some VERY talented friends: Steve Gregory (lead guitar), Shawn Malcomson (percussion) and Heather Swanson (fiddle).
The show is FREE, with donations accepted.
The second will be performed at THE legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA with a band that will include my producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan) on bass! This show is part of the Club Passim - The Folk Collective series. To learn more about The Folk Collective, go to passim.org/folkcollective.
I’ve purposefully scheduled the month of April off to tend to a little bit business but mostly for rest and self care. But after April, I have some VERY exciting shows on the calendar, some solo, a few with my fiddling sister Heather Swanson and one with my good friend Steve Gregory.
Be sure and check my website calendar often, as shows continue to be added. In addition to the May shows listed below, upcoming shows include:
The Vokes Theatre in Wayland
Soule Homestead Folk Festival in Middleborough
Falmouth Arts Market
Danehy Park in Cambridge
WMVY Patio Concert Series on Martha’s Vineyard
Salt Pond Amphitheatre in Eastham
Old Sloop Presents
Private House Concerts!

Memorial Day campfire. festival
The Folk Collective Round
Tickets $10 per day | $25 Full Festival Pass
I’m super excited to be performing in The Folk Collective Round with fellow members Alastair Moock, Audrey Pearl and Stephanie McKay!
It started as a way to fill a bad booking weekend in 1998, but now after more than 20 years, the campfire. festival has become the single-biggest way that Passim develops new talent and celebrates the Boston area’s amazing music scene. The festival is 4 full days and nights of amazing music!
Today, the campfire. festival is as much about the community as it is about the music. “In the round” performances with songwriters swapping tunes are as common as solo and band sets throughout the course of each day of the festival. Labor Day weekend will be fully in-person, with live sets being enjoyed in the club and the entire show also available through the live stream.
