Article about the Concert in The Union Leader
The date was January 23, 2011. I was fortunate to be part of a wonderful fundraising effort for the LOVE HOPE STRENGTH organization - their mission: LHSF is an international, music-centric cancer charity dedicated to saving lives, one concert at a time. The mission is to save lives, right now, with the advances that have already been made in cancer care.
Audience members signed up for a match - ready to donate for bone marrow patients. The concert was a wonderful acoustic evening with about 5 performers - all of them amazing. I played some songs that I haven't played in a while, some actually never in front of an audience yet. They were chosen with care to match the cause.
The venue, THE JAM FACTORY, in Manchester, NH is run by Sadi Khan, who also maintains a web presence on Facebook where you can view clips from the concert:

I always enjoy working for a cause and this is a very good one!
Thanks to Angie of the Crystal Jade Shop in Salem, NH we had a wonderful concert at the Holiday Inn. I kicked off the concert with Hebrew Psalms and songs for healing - dedicated to the healing efforts now needed after the terrible Carmel fires in Israel. Following my set was a group concert with didgereedoos, gongs, crystal bowls and native flutes and percussion. I joined in with my egg shaker and also benefitted from the healing effects of the music. Sound Healing is worth your time!
December is looking good. I have a number of concerts coming up - all unique and in cozy venues. It will be good to be "in the music" again. It's been too long away from it. I'll be starting off with a concert in Keene, NH at the Toadstool Bookshop - two hours to play beautiful music for anyone and everyone who enters the store. Following that I have two music-filled weekends with a number of concerts one after the other, then the next weekend to a wonderful weekend retreat in Cape Cod. To top it off, just around the corner on December 15th I will present an experiential concert of my Hebrew Psalms. Chanukah begins on December 1st to kick off the winter holiday season of Light. Enjoy the season and the wonderful array of musical events.
