'Tis the season to be connected. Email email@example.com to be added to my advent calendar list. Each day, I'll share things about how we celebrate this holiday with musings, pictures, recipes and more!
Thanks for stopping by. I'd like to invite you a series that James and I are doing, with a new theme each week. Through the course of four weeks we'll touch on themes of time, home, light and horizon through song. Bring your song requests, listen to rarely-performed treasures and be the first to hear brand new songs including, Almost Home (out soon on Borealis Records). A little uke, a little cello, rousing voices and lots of good vibes. Every Wednesday in May from 4-4:30pm(AST).
So much has happened in the past few months. I felt like I just had just made peace with self-isolation and then our part of the world was hit with even harder grief. Our hearts are grieving for the Nova Scotians who have recently lost their lives. Please accept this lullaby to comfort and soothe you, no matter what you are facing right now.
On a cold, dark night, we recorded this version of my song, Will You. Guest musicians include James Hill, Rachel Capon & Eli Bender (from Hale & Hearty) and Shelley O'Brien. Hope you enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime converge of talent!
I would like to share a new video of our arrangement of It Came Upon the Midnight Clear with you and hope you will find a corner of space to take a moment, and enjoy the stillness of this song.
The lyrics for It Came Upon the Midnight Clear were written by Unitarian pastor Edmund Sears in 1849, immediately following the Mexican-American War. His poetry speaks of a dark world in a dreary time. Some of us may feel like that right now. I want to dedicate this song to all who are in need, whatever that may be: of physical comfort, of a quiet space to sleep, of a little more love, of a warm meal on the table. You are in my thoughts. Let this song uplift you and let the message that music provides hope ring out!
