Hey folks!! What an amazing fall it’s turning out to be. Here’s the scoop.
First of all, some huge news: I was chosen to perform at the prestigious Folk DJ showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) this November. This is the queen of folk music events, and it’s an amazing honor– I will be performing in front of nearly every folk DJ in the country! Cross your fingers for me, and thanks to the legendary Ron Olesko for making it happen.
Last week, I was interviewed and my music featured on an internationally-broadcast radio program, Making Contact. The program focuses on voice, specifically what our voices say about us, and I talk about losing my voice, and regaining it concurrent to my coming out as trans. It’s pretty special – please check it out!
I have a few things happening this coming week. On Monday October 20, at 7, I play a few songs for a songwriter’s evening at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3, 185 Orchard Street. $10, with a great group of friends inclusing Jacqueline Francis and Ina May Wool.
On Thursday October 23 from 7-11, I will be helping to host the Third Wave Fund’s REVIVE! Party at 200 Orchard St, to benefit youth activism for gender justice. Legendary DJ Juliana Huxtable will be spinning, and it’s sliding scale – no one will be turned away.
But the big, big show is next Saturday night, Oct 25, I perform with my friend Marci Geller at First Acoustics, at the First Unitarian Church, Pierrepont Street at Morgan, Brooklyn Heights. This is a premier folk venue, and will be a great evening. I hope very much you will come down if you’re in the area. Tickets are $20 in advance, and $25 at the door, 8 pm sharp.
So that’s about it. Sending lotsa love…and my new CD is almost done, btw! I can’t wait for you to hear it.
