May each day bring thee something
Fair to hold in memory
Some true light to shine
Upon thee in the after days
May each night bring thee peace
As when the dove broods o'er
The young she loves; may day
And night the circle of
A rich experience weave
About thy life, and make
It rich with knowledge, but radiant
With love whose blossoms shall be
-Helen Van Anderson Gordon
Wishing You A Happy Holiday Season!
While it's been a quiet spell for me thanks to covid and omicron, hope is strong that live music will continue to be safely presented in the coming year.
I've missed playing for you and plan to do a LIVESTREAM show on Thursday December 23rd at 7:00 p.m.
Please join me by tuning in to

My guests in February will be:
Abigail has been writing music for over 10 years. She opened for such acts as Eddie Money, The Little River Band, Flydown and more. Venues include The Cape Cod Melody Tent, The South Shore Music Circus, PAC TV, WATD Radio, Hard Rock Cafe & Faneuil Hall in Boston, Marshfield MA Fair, The Spire in Plymouth MA, and many more around New England and as far as Ireland and Nashville TN.
Women in folk of the 60’s and 70’s
Beyond Abigail’s original work she also performs as a cover artist with a set that is composed of a collection of compositions from women in folk music during the 1960’s- 1970’s. This set includes the work of Joni Mitchell, Melanie Safka, Joan Baez, Carly Simon and more.
Prateek (pruh - TEEK) has been described as “Not just any guy with a guitar…” by The Boston Globe and perhaps that’s the best introduction to his music besides actually listening to it.
The Boston-based artist recorded his debut EP, “Walking in My Sleep,” with only his guitar and two microphones in an attempt to emulate Bob Dylan’s early work. Since then, Prateek’s music has evolved to incorporate gritty electric guitars, silvery backing vocals, and lush strings, all draped around his own soulful, powerful voice.
Prateek has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards. His music has been played on radio stations including Sirius XM, 98.9 WERS, and 92.5 The River. His debut album, "The Band’s All Gone," is available wherever digital music is sold or streamed.
