Her weaving of a historian’s imagination with a troubadour’s artistry offers an American original sound that blends vintage jazz, the tang of a Tom Waitsian waltz and the somber grit of a low tide lullaby.
It’s really getting near the end! CD #5 (this thing really needs a name- suggestions?), is almost there. Many thanks to Jud Caswell at Frog Hollow for his patience, good ears, sense of humor, and know-how. Stay tuned... #Cd5. #singersongwriter #newcd #newmusic #portlandmaine

I’ve been in awe of this process all summer. This transformation and migration is truly miraculous. Two years ago I saw no monarchs at all. Last year, there were a few. This year, the only milkweed on the land sprouted in our garden so we relinquished that corner. What happened is proof that when habitat (even a small patch) is restored it can have powerful, positive effects. A relationship is restored. We counted about 30, just in our tiny patch. This morning a monarch spent 15 minutes on my son’s hand while we marveled. Witnessing this kind of transformation gives me hope for positive transformation within ourselves too. #monarchs #milkweed #mainesummer
