Hello to All! My July schedule includes some of my faves… return performances after years gone by at venues like: Deertrees Theatre (July 10th) where I recorded my LIVE CD 10 years ago! & the Yarmouth Clam Festival (July 19th) where I’ve not performed for 12 years! I also have fave annual shows at the Poland Spring Resort (July 28th) where I get to sing once more in the idyllic setting of the All Souls Chapel & at the Greenville Gazebo on Moosehead Lake (July 24th)… always a joy to play… & I’ll be back in Bath on July 5th during Heritage Days after a couple years’ absence, this time with Dan Merrill & Tony Simmons (a big FIRST for that line up) & I open the Soule Homestead Concert Series in Middleboro MA on July 12th (my debut here)… it’s all so exciting!

2. CURRENT TARGETS (JULY is CRANKIN!)

SATURDAY / JULY 5 / BATH HERITAGE DAYS / BATH ME / 1:30 PM… at the Gazebo Stage in Library Park, with two of my fave musicians: Dan Merrill on guitars, Tony Simmons on bass, both adding vocals when the urge strikes. How fun is THAT gonna be? In my ole stompin’ grounds, too… aah, the good ole 80’s when the Front Street Shuffle brought about the song “Passenger Side of the Bar”… it’s a wonder most of us survived. I bring a new angle to my music there now... but happily remember the good ole days while I sing. Hope to see some of my pals from those days... bring the family… there’s something for everyone here. The website lists us at 1:30, I was told 1:10PM, so come around 1 & see what happens! Here’s the Heritage Days [website] with all that’s happenin'.

THURSDAY / JULY 10 / DEERTREES THEATRE / HARRISON ME / 7:30PM / 207-583-6747… The 10th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT celebrating my LIVE recording… so HOT it was on that 1st day of August in 2004… we had to shut down all the fans due to our recording process & it hit over 100 degrees that day… OUTSIDE the theatre, that is. Why did I wear red silk pants? Who knows, but we all made the sweaty experience a memorable one, on tape & in that moment. It’s a night I’ll always smile about… Dan Merrill at the helm, hovering over the recording gear, hoping the sticky fly strips hung in the rafters during sound check kept the buzzing at bay. The audience was as much a part of the recording that night as I was… really hope to see some of those folks back after all these years. This is another great place for all ages. If you’ve never been to Deertrees, do it now… you’ll fall in love with this place. Your ticket purchase helps to keep this theatre (built in 1936) up & running. You can order tix online [here] or go to their box office, or give ‘em a call at the number listed above. I can’t WAIT!.

FRIDAY / JULY 11 / 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].

SATURDAY / JULY 12 / SOULE HOMESTEAD SUMMER CONCERT SERIES / MIDDLEBORO MA / 6PM / 508-947-6744… I am honored to debut here & kick off the concert series at the Soule Homestead. I heard about this venue through my friend Rich Mosley, a musician’s friend & passionate promoter of some of the best performers in New England & beyond. I’ve visited the website & I got a good feelin’ in my bones about this one. Outdoor shows trip my trigger anyway & this setting looks like a beaut! Hope some of you in that neck o’ the woods (that I don’t get to see often these days) choose to venture out to support me & the series itself. Here’s the [website] for directions, ticket info & a full schedule of the series. Carlin Tripp will open for me that night.

FRIDAY / JULY 18 / THE MAINE TABLE / S PORTLAND ME / 6PM / 207-699-4495… I really LOVE playing here… so much so, that I’ve booked gigs through September already. 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 there! I encourage reservations… the place gets packed on Fridays… & please tell them you’re coming to hear yours truly. Here’s their [website].

SATURDAY / JULY 19 / YARMOUTH CLAM FESTIVAL / YARMOUTH ME / 6PM / MEMORIAL GREEN… I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since I performed at the Clam Fest. REALLY? I used to be one of the home town favorites who played every year, down at the Memorial Green, after the parade on Friday night… often it rained on our parade but it never kept any of us from having a blast at the Fest. I had a dream this winter… my late Mom (Lovely Lu to some of us, Lu to most) came to me & told me it was time to go back to play the Clam Fest. Even though she’s in the BIG SKY, she still makes me do things… I never even hesitated… I called the Town Office, explained Mom’s message & it just fell into place after that. I chose to play Saturday night instead of after the parade cos I want to check out the Yarmouth High All Class Alumni Reunion that happens up at NYA after the fireworks that night… it sounds like a perfect summer eve to me… & I’ll be dedicating my set to Lovely Lu, of course. Be there or be square… here’s the Clam Fest [website].

THURSDAY / JULY 24 / GREENVILLE GAZEBO SERIES / GREENVILLE ME / 7PM / 207-695-2421... I have always loved playing here beside Moosehead Lake with the sun setting ever so sweetly on the water & over the surrounding mountains. This scene could be a summer postcard enticing enough to make one drive the extra miles to be part of it. I am psyched that I AM a part of it again this year! Please go the extra mile & check this one out. If it rains (NOT!) we move inside to the Center for Moosehead History on Lakeview Street. If it’s a nice evening (which it WILL be) bring chairs or a blanket, a cooler with some summer snacks & bevies & be ready to sing one, dance to one, or both. Call the town office (above) for furthers.

MONDAY / JULY 28 / ALL SOULS CHAPEL / POLAND SPRING RESORT / POLAND SPRING ME / 7PM... this is a Benefit Concert for The Preservation Society at Poland Spring & one of the most beautiful spaces ever... the acoustics in this old chapel are just gorgeous, not to mention the stained glass windows & the setting on the hill... this will be my 4th time playing this series… every year it gets better! I love singing in this space & helping to preserve it & the history of Poland Spring. There will be plenty of that yummy spring water around & yummy cookies & other beverages after the show! Here's the [link].

3. CURRENT CEREBRAL WANDERINGS

I wonder if… due to a VERY LONG wintah here in the northeast we are due for an extra warm, extra long & beautiful summer? Having chatted with many about this, most opinions lean toward a big YES! Perhaps it’s more wishful hoping than it is educated opinion. Nonetheless, I am sending it out to the universe that we are all entitled to a “best summer ever!” in the coming weeks. My last day at my school job was June 19th… I was more than ready to dance on out of there & start my summer break.

As I write, I am packing bags for my trip to the Grand Canyon, making sure all is in order… of course, they changed our flight times last minute… again… is this the new “always” when flying? Makes me crazy… & truly, I need no help with that! Really looking forward to a 5 hour layover in Newark NJ… bummer y’all will get this after the fact… maybe some of you have found interesting things to do in Newark during a long layover? Wish I coulda asked y’all… well, maybe I’ll Facebook some friends & find some ideas for entertainment. I DO have a good book: John Wesley Powell’s “The Exploration of the Colorado River and Its Canyons”… highly recommended by my buddy Roger from North Carolina… well, he’s not really FROM NC… he just lives there now. Wow… now I’m REALLY wandering.

As I anticipate the joys of this trip of a lifetime, I am also thinking about how messed up things are in other parts of the world. I wish I had a magic wand or at least a clearer understanding of why we can’t all just get along & help each other save this beautiful planet we are on. I will appreciate the sunrises, sunsets & hikes ahead in Arizona & Utah & try to let some of this go as I soak it all in… we have such a gift here to share… I just worry sometimes that we might totally blow it. Wish me luck letting go. I promise I won’t get too close to the edge.

Wishing all of you a grand start to July… hope you have some plans in place to spend quality time with friends & family. If your plans include catching one of my shows listed above, my summer will shine brighter for it! Thanks, as always, for staying tuned to my meanderings. I’ll watch for you along the way…

Peace,
