A busy June for me and Joe, and me and Joe and Camilo. The cabaret show at The Oxford Community Center in Oxford, Maryland is going to be a fun one - I'll include both the great article by Val Cavalheri in the Talbot Spy, and the terrific podcast recording by Muphen Whitney talking about that single show. All of this buzz is really gratifying and I am going to endeavor not to get too large a head. The important thing for me is that the setting in the Community Center venue is right in the midst of the audience, and I am excited about having that close communication with the mood of the audience. It is what I love best about performing.
Then, on the 21st of June, Joe and I are joined by brilliant Brazilian classical guitarist Camilo Carrara in the first of three concerts at Moonstone Manor in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. This concert benefits A.C.T. (aboutchildhoodtrauma.org). If you are anywhere in the area, this is a great organization seeking to help children and families through any number of chaotic life events. Dr. Lark Eshleman's internationally recognized program is certainly worth knowing, and we are looking forward to a beautiful solstice evening at the lovely Moonstone Manor!
The following night we are performing as a trio is one of our favorite venues of all time - the dynamic Mainstay in Rock Hall, Maryland. Intimate, warm, and acoustically dandy, The Mainstay is like coming home.
And to change all of that up, the next morning we are off to New York to perform for the very first time at Brooklyn's National Sawdust Theater. Three concerts, three nights, and an incredible series of contrasts. We can't wait to present our program of original music, jazz improv, and guitar mastery in this high tech and amazing venue.
Wow! What a June!
Ticket information for all three shows is right over there in the events column. I hope to see you all!
