Newport Jazz Fest Features, Photography, Live Shows, The Big E, Video





There are signs of life all around us since May. The flowers in my little garden are still working on being fully in bloom. We are looking forward to visiting the Newport Jazz Festival in August. In September we will return to the Chelmsford Center for the Arts to do a full band live stream show. Also, we return to the Big E in Springfield , MA to do an outdoor , one hour concert. YAY!!


In May I spent the month working on my photography with teacher Adriana Mateo. She is an awesome teacher and photographer! Here’s a link to her website. www.adrianameteo.com.

Next month we’ll feature an interview with her in ”The Jazz Room” that we did a couple of years ago.




So the photos you see of my garden and the candle were my homework. It’s been fun learning how to shoot in the dark!
