"The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness,
the human soul is apt to revive also."
-Harriet Anne Jacobs
Harriet Anne Jacobs was an African American writer, whose autobiography, "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl," published in 1861 under the pseudonym
Linda Brent, is now considered an "American classic". Born into slavery in Edenton, North Carolina, she was sexually harassed by her enslaver. When he threatened to sell her children if she did not submit to his desire, she hid in a tiny crawl space under the roof of her grandmother's house, so low she could not stand up in it. After staying there for seven years, she finally managed to escape to the free North, where she was reunited with her children Joseph and
Louisa Matilda and her brother John S. Jacobs. She found work as a nanny and got into contact with abolitionist and feminist reformers.
Even in New York, her freedom was in danger until her employer was able to pay off her legal owner.
During and immediately after the Civil War, she went to the Union-occupied parts of the South together with her daughter,
organizing help and founding two schools for fugitive and freed slaves.
With spring only one week away and vaccinations being scheduled, the hope in the air is tangible!
I'm super excited to share recent and upcoming virtual shows with friends!

In 2015, Virginia based artist Rob Williams and I met at a show we shared at O'Shea's Olde Inne
and have remained friends ever since!
A natural storyteller who crafts melodies and narratives with intelligence and ease, singer-songwriter
Rob Williams is known for his compelling, character-driven songs.
With the release of his 4th solo album, Weathering the Storm, Vol. 1, Williams shares his most moving and intimate work yet.
Recorded over a year-long course of mini-sessions, the album’s refined sense of cohesion comes in part
from allowing more space for the recording process.
Williams honed his talent for making memorable Americana, country, and alt-rock in several bands
(Contocook Line, Joe Buck, Jr.) before releasing his first solo album A Place in the Sun 2012.
In 2015 Williams released his second solo album Southern FM, recorded in Dallas, showcasing his ability to produce
expansive, nuanced acoustic roots rock. An Hour Before Daylight, Williams’ third solo album, further demonstrates his knack for succinct and gripping narratives.The dynamic, varied stories are not only entertaining but straightforward in their humanness.
Inspired by everything from early REM and the Beatles to contemporaries Craig Finn and Josh Ritter, Williams has
developed an intuitive ability to translate lived and imagined experiences into catchy, well-crafted, and engaging music.
