Doin's - January 2022 (Vol. 5, No. 1)

Instead of weeping when a tragedy occurs in a songbird's life, it sings away its grief. 
I believe we could well follow the pattern of our feathered friends. 
-William Shakespeare 

(mountain bluebird) 


Happy New Year Friends! 

I'm very excited to share some upcoming shows and I hope you can join us! 

I'm honored to be hosting AND performing at the 

Spire Center for the Arts 
Lobby Series - Song Circle 

The Spire lobby is transformed into a 70-seat showcase lounge with new audio and lighting to provide a relaxed and intimate setting. 

The monthly Song Circle will feature some of the region's most talented Folk and Singer/Songwriters performing original music and sharing the stories behind the songs! 


Abigail Vail 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.

Kim Moberg opens the show. 
While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Liz has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. 

Liz’s songs have won some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Competition. With five albums to her name, Liz’s music has been featured on TV shows such as ABC’s “Beauty & The Beast”, Lifetime’s “Army Wives”, and MTV’s “Scream”.
