Hi There!

Finally the great weather has arrived! This note will cover both July and August. New things are happening!

We are traveling to the Newport Jazz Festival at the end of July. I hope for some great pictures!

In August we’ll be in New York City to shoot a music video. Photographer/ Videographer Adriana Mateo will be the producer. More info will follow later in the month. We’re looking forward to doing this!

Live Performances

Our performance schedule still includes September 18th live stream one hour show hosted by the Chelmsford Center for the Arts. It will be the CD Release Show we planned to do in May of 2020.

On September 24th we’ll do a performance on the outdoor stage at the NH Building at the Big E Exposition in Springfield MA. Once the times are confirmed for both I’ll send out a special notice.

Some of us always look frazzled when under stress.

Swans gracefully glide above water while paddling

as fast as they can never showing the level of stress

it takes to get from point A to point B.

Many of us are swans.
