Beer and Syrup

 

I've got a couple of fun things happening this month:

 

This Saturday I'll once again be participating in Piti Theatre's annual performing arts festival, Syrup.  This year's headliner is two time Grammy winner musician and story teller Bill Harley who will be performing his own set and narrating stories performed by Piti's Shelburne Falls Youth Troupe at 4 pm.  I will be performing  a song I wrote in collaboration with Piti Theatre's Jonathan Mirin, "Praise to Spring", featuring choreography by Godeliève Richard and Ballet Renversé at 4 pm to lead off Bill's set.  Also, at 2 pm is the world premiere of Sammy and the Grand Buffet, a solo physical-international comedy featuring Jonathan Mirin as Sammy, an American clown in Paris at 2 pm.

 

Second time's the charm:  Sunday March 26, I'll be playing a dinner show at The Deja Brew Pub in Wendell, MA, from 6:30 to 9 pm with my new duo, 2 The Moon.  2 The Moon is comprised of myself on piano and the lovely vocalist Shelley Hines.  We will be playing a fun and diverse assortment of familiar tunes from many genres and eras, including a few originals.  This show is rescheduled from last month when I got the flu and had to cancel!  Come hear our playful take on "lounge music"! 

 

Looking ahead to next month: on Saturday April 15, at 3 pm,  I will be performing in a benefit concert for the ACLU at First Churches in Northampton, MA.  Also on the bill are Pamela Means, The Nields and The Winter Pills.  This is going to be a great show, for an excellent cause.  For more information and tickets, please check out the Facebook Page.
