Mermaids, Lyrics, Concerts, and Gratitude

Betsy, Ryan and I had a wonderful experience at the Faerieworlds festival last weekend.  Ryan and I are about to start our journey home.  I’ve got two concert appearances en route, the last pair of shows on my #SultrySummerTour.  Please help me spread the word!

-SATURDAY at noon, I’ll be singing at Salt Lake City Pagan Pride Day 2016!  It’s free! If you can, please bring a non-perishable item for the Food & Blanket Drive that Pagan Pride Day is sponsoring in the name of The Road Homea private non-profit social service agency that assists individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake County and along the Wasatch Front.

NEXT MONDAY EVENING, I have a concert at the lovely Tortuga gallery in Albuquerque, NM.  Grab tickets here!

Tortuga’s a great place, tucked into a sweet little neighborhood, and I’m so glad they’re able to host me for another self-produced concert.


I’ve gotten a lot of love for my mermaid song, “The Ballad of Laurelei”, which was a collaboration with our friend, the late great Mark Lewis.  The Faerieworlds community honored Mark’s life this weekend in myriad lovely ways, and we were proud to add to that resonance our performances of “Laurelei”.  I want to thank our band mates (Sharon and Winter, I love you!) for helping this mermaid sing her story, and our fans (especially our mermaid fans!) for letting us share the world of that song with them and loving it so very clearly.

I’ve had one person write to me since the weekend, asking for more information about the song.  It’s not yet recorded, but I have blogged about its lyrics and origins.  Read that post here.
