Bandcamp birthdays today + Online Show Jan. 24

Hello, friends and fans.  What a year it’s already been.

Just a quick post with two nice things in it for you:

1. Today is my husband’s birthday, AS WELL AS the birthday of our song sisters Sharon Knight and Celia Farran!  All these birthday bards are on Bandcamp along with me!  I invite you to honor their existence by checking out their work and making a purchase if you’re able.

Ryan’s spoken word, poems & essays (Start with “Backwoods MacBeth” or “A Quandary of Quagmires”. You’ll thank me):

Sharon’s music (let the mermaid pirate queen sing to you in her neofolk & rock-romantique style):

Celia’s music (from comedy to Irish legend to activism and back):

Recordings of mine that feature Ryan’s awesome singing voice:
“Glashtyn Shanty”
“Black Swan Blues”

A whole bunch of songs with Ryan in them, tbh: 

And some of his favorites of mine:
-the Ember Days film score:
-“City of Marrow”:
-and the 1157 remixes:

Happy birthday to these stalwart hearts, and to any of you who have a birthday this month, also!

2. I have one online concert this month, and it’s gonna be a special one, lots of filming on location and long-distance collaboration with my co-star, Kat Heatherington, poet and permaculture badass of the west.  She and both have to believe we’ll still have a country left later this month, and that y’all will still need songs and poems and pretty scenery to enjoy from the safety of your own nest.  So that’s what we’ll be bringing to you.

2PM CENTRAL (3pm Eastern, 1pm Mountain, Noon Pacific, 7pm GMT) 


The bones of this land deserve haunting songs and protean words to raise them. 
Join songwriter S. J. Tucker and poet Kat Heatherington for a shared online performance of words and music, poetry and songs rooted both in the soul of Kat’s desert home and S. J.’s green river valley. 
The two performers have worked together to produce concerts & events in community art spaces for more than a decade, but this will be their first opportunity to share an online show of Kat’s work & S. J.’s songs combined. Don’t miss it.

More about Kat Heatherington:
Kat lives at the intersection of art, poetry, organic gardening, queer dance parties, and strong-willed Taurus practicality. She is a queer, polyamorous, ecofeminist poet, artist, and pagan, who co-founded and lives in Sunflower River intentional community south of Albuquerque, in a river valley in the high desert. She has a passion for authenticity and emotional intelligence, which is reflected in her poetry. She has two books, The Bones of This Land and The Heart is a Muscle, both published by Swimming with Elephants Publications and available from the author, as well as on, and at your local independent bookseller.
