Anni Blog November 3, 2014

Hello to all! Here in Maine, the glorious fall colors have faded & the snappy cold mornings are here to remind us that, yes, wintah is on its way. As a matter of fact, many of us had to make use of our shovels already! Daylight Savings Time is over & the days grow darker earlier. These things also signal a definite slowing down in my musical travels. Some of you remember when I was playing full-time… the mantra was “no matter the weathah, the show must go on”… & it usually did. I still feel that same strong commitment, yet I play less frequently during the season when white knuckle rides well after dark can be in the high percentage of possibilities… my fingers are crossed that whatever gig is on the books, THAT will be the day when we WON’T get snow. I hate canceling gigs.

Have you checked out the new improved Anni Sound Store? (Click the link above.) We’ve lowered the price of CD’s by $3; added mp3 downloads of entire albums or single songs… AND you can finally find me (again) on iTunes! Finding my music is easier & a lot more fun now. PLEASE send us a message if you have any questions or ideas… we want & appreciate your feedback. Christmas isn’t all that far away… remember, CD’s make great Christmas gifts!

2. CURRENT TARGETS (NOVEMBER Details)

FRIDAY / NOVEMBER 14th / OCEAN PIZZA / OLD ORCHARD BEACH ME / 7PM / 207-934-2900... Ocean Pizza sounds like a little diner thing doesn't it? There's a take out spot in the front, sure 'nough... but the dining room is really warm, woody & comfy, with a bar & music on Friday nights... & GET THIS: the only music allowed is... ORIGINAL MUSIC! I am a shoe in for this spot. Pam, the owner, is a petite fiery lady straight outta Italy with some of her Grandma's best recipes tucked up under her sleeve. This is another splendid specimen of a local family run business with something unique to offer. Here's their [website].

FRIDAY / NOVEMBER 21st / THE MAINE TABLE / S PORTLAND ME / 6PM / 207-699-4495… I really LOVE playing here! It’s under new management (it used to be the Merry Manor / Governor’s) & it now features Maine sourced foods & beverages. It also boasts a fun & economical Happy Hour until 7PM, so come early & stay late. I play 6 to 9. The food is yummy, the patrons are spunky, the wait staff & bartenders are funky & my tunes sound great in here! I encourage reservations… the place gets packed on Fridays… & please tell them you’re coming to hear yours truly. Here’s their [website].

3. CURRENT CEREBRAL WANDERINGS


The Bigelow Range, Carrabassett ME

Last month I had such a blast playing tunes in Kingfield (ME) at the historic Herbert Hotel, up close & personal… we turned the lobby into an intimate venue with chairs & couches, cheese & crackers & a cozy cash bar tucked into the corner opposite my performance space. The folks who were there included people from all phases of my life: college pals (many!), local folks who had caught my act at the Pops Fest there in town the year before, Anni Fans who had been on my A List (E-News) for, like, forever… & people who were just passin’ through & thought it’d be fun to catch this event they heard about one way or another. I played a couple sets of what some might call “favorites”… but I also showcased a brand new tune that I’d worked on this summer during a visit with my college gal pals in Searsport in August… (most of them were there to hear the updated version.) How fun! It was like playin’ in a big ole living room, celebrating music, the surrounding mountains, each other & TGIF! I believe everybody left the Herbert feeling transported from a work week into a shared letting go of all those “have to’s” & into a YES! place that loosened spirits & made room for whatever adventure lay ahead… planned or otherwise.

I know that I for sure continued on with that bolstered spirit into & through the rest of the weekend. I stayed near the summit of Sugarloaf Mtn. with my college pals, honoring the life of one of ours who left us way too soon. We did her right, I think. On Saturday, the sun came out for the first time in 5 days… I got to hike up to Stratton Brook Hut with my niece Hannah & her way cute dog Sluice, taking in views of the magnificent Bigelow Range where, way back when, I first crossed over as a through hiker on the Appalachian Trail. Above is a panoramic view of that one-of-a kind ridge of mountains. Here is a close up of the Carrabassett River flowing below the ridge.

So tonight as I write, I am thinking about how lucky I am… how much I have to be thankful for. Seems like perfect timing, as the holiday season is closing in & Thanksgiving is only weeks away. Music, mountains, my friends, my family & my health… all things to be thankful for. I can add to that list a BIG THANKS to all of you who continue to read my musings & support me in my musical journeys. Wishing you all the best Thanksgiving possible… may you feel as thankful as I for those things that make you happy & healthy.

Peace,
