Some singing this spring ….
For those who have been asking where and when I’ll be singing, I’ve got some updates. As the dust settles from my move I’ve been dusting off my songs and decided to showcase some of the work I’ve done to help others. Originally “Something to Sing About” was planned to help the platform for CMV awareness through my new song “Had I Known”. This is scheduled as an event on Wednesday May 9 at the Mystic/Noank Library. It features not only Lisa Saunders, local author and CMV awareness activist, but I’m happy to announce that Cindy Sheridan Murphy will also be there to share her story of how the song and book “Each Moment We’re Alive” morphed into her non profit organization to support cancer survivors and their loved ones. It’s scheduled for 3:30 PM and I plan to play other songs and share the stories behind the songs for adoption, autism, Habitat for Humanity, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, child abuse, post 9/11, and some of the more fun ones as well. In honor of Mother’s Day I plan to sing “Sweetest Heart”, celebrating my beloved Mom who I lost almost 5 years ago. I hope to mix in some of the fun ones like my Connecticut Song from the perspective of a transplanted New Yorker and a favorite of many, “Conscious Cowboy”. Saturday May 12, I’ll be launching the March of Dimes walk by singing the National Anthem. Another new development is that Lori Diamond and Fred Abatelli will be joining me to perform for an event sponsored by Each Moment We’re Alive in West Springfield on June 24. Their music is simply some of the most beautiful around and I am delighted to be partnering with them again. Any opportunity to hear them is a treat. Hope to see some old and new friends soon … In springtime especially, there’s always something to sing about ….
