Concerts for a Cause

UUCB, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick, ME

This concert will be a "Morning Cordial Retrospective" celebrating the pressing of my "Morning Cordial Vol. 1" CD! "The Morning Cordial" is a video series that I launched in March of 2020 to provide a sense of warmth and connection in a time that felt very solitary and isolating. I published a video every weekday for that whole first summer, and the series now has over 175 videos. Those videos included my own original songs, acoustic favorites, and many Irish songs.

From March 2020 through September of 2021, I was deeply involved in the creation of the online services for the UU church of Brunswick. I played hymns and sang songs by myself and with my family and other guests. I love that we can all be together now, but I miss the connection I was able to forge in that time. I love the opportunity to make music in this wonderful space!

The first Tuesday of every month is song swap workshop night at the Thomas Memorial! For over 5 years now, a group of us have been meeting to share songs and hone our craft. Each participant who would like to share brings a song that is in-progress, along with 8-10 printouts of lyrics. We take care to offer feedback that is tailored to the writer's questions, always with an eye toward what the artist is trying to achieve with their work. All are welcome, but we only have time for 6 songs per session so it may be not everyone gets a chance to share every month.
