“A butterfly symbolized acceptance of each new phase in life.
To keep faith as everything around you changed.”
– Lisa Kleypas
And what changes indeed!
Wishing you peace of mind as we emerge into a shifted world with respect to each individual's pace and comfort levels.
I'd also like to offer my prayers to the families who lost loved ones in the past 15 months and my gratitude to the health care workers and scientists who worked so hard to help the world return to one where hugs and gathering and music need no longer be avoided.
It is with so many mixed emotions, including gratitude, that I share some upcoming shows.
We've learned that while nothing can replicate a live in person show, live stream shows have a niche and will remain in this new normal in one form or another, so you'll see on my calendar performances both in person and streamed!

I am profoundly proud to be one of eight USA artists invited to perform at the
Folk Alliance International Showcase at this year's International Indigenous Music Summit!
Indigenous artist around the world are bringing unique and important stories, through song and through the lens of their humanity. Stories that need to be heard. These stories are diverse, but profoundly similar.
We've learned, in different ways, how to navigate oppression and grow into resurgence.
We've all be innovative in protecting our traditions, our songs and our stories
in forging new pathways for the future.
