A Little Celtic Tune on Youtube, My Latest Video

Here is my latest Youtube video.

"Oh My Katie Wee" was written when I was expecting my daughter and subsequently she has declared it belongs to her.

(True story, I played harp right up until my due date with all three children - they all moved around quite a bit when I played, but my daughter was the only one who apparently knew my entire repertoire and would kick me if I made a mistake.)

This particular recording was made at the Racine Theater Guild when I appeared as part of their Jean's Jazz concert series. Celtic was not on the menu, so this was an encore.

I hope you enjoy it!

New Blog

I've started a new blog: Overbooked and Underpaid: Notes from a yes-aholic

This blog was inspired by a couple of things. First, were some comments from the estimable Tom Racine during an interview for my husband's comic strip - I think it went something like "Good god, woman! How do you find time to do all this stuff?!" and last year I started writing a humor column for our local newspaper. I also got some prodding from some of the readers who already follow this blog and my Edison blog.

With all the different directions my husband and I find ourselves pulled in, we definitely feel overbooked and underpaid. I'm pretty sure an awful lot of folks out there feel the same way so, if you're looking for some entertaining reading about my daily inability to stick to my schedule - or if you want to share your own stories of being overbooked and underpaid - head on over and check it out.

Just don't expect any cookies.

I'm too busy.

CD's for sale

So I've officially put the whole CD up for sale now on the website. You can still download single tunes if you wish,  but for a standard rate of 99 cents per tune rather than the ambiguous system of payment I had before.

Thanks to all those of you who have already purchased my music - I hope you're enjoying it!

Jean's Jazz

I am happy to announce my upcoming appearance as part of the Jean's Jazz concert series at the Racine Theater Guild. The performance is Thursday, February 18th from 7-8 p.m. Information on the series as well as ticket prices and ordering information can be found here

Rather than appear as a solo act, this time I have elected to put together a trio which will feature Brian Ford on Drums and Jane Livingston on Synthesizer. The program will consist of a few favorites from my recording Round and Round and also a fair bit of new material I am very excited about.

 I will also be selling CD's, and the Guild has expressed an interest in showing some of my blown glass work in the lobby the night of the show.

See you there!
