Upcoming shows and news!

Hi, Mischief makers. πŸ™‚ Summer zooms along, doesn’t it?

Here’s what I’ve got cooking this month.

THIS SATURDAY, July 6 from 3-9pm, I’m performing in BOSTON at a Mini Block Party and birthday celebration, hosted by and for the lovely Melissa Kaplan! The event is at Melissa’s home, so send her a message if you’d like to attend: tamsin1@comcast.net

SATURDAY July 13 has a very special concert on it. Betsy and I will perform at a FAERIE BALL! I know you’re shocked…

“Pixies, Genii, Treasure, Fire, Food, and Song! Come and help us raise the roof for the ATC! Get out your wings, your wands, your wispy gear, your hobnail boots & kilts my dears. Then Join us at this merry site to sing & dance in love & light! Proceeds from this benefit ball go towards replacing the oldest part of the retreat house roof.
Desserts will be available in the dining hall for a nominal fee.
Readers and vendors will also be in attendance!
We encourage you to please carpool and bring a chair or blanket!
Sooj and Betsy will play two sets and several other grand plans are in the works! The show will be outdoors, so layered costumes are recommended. Autumn of Dancing Hands Productions will be our ASL interpreter for the evening!”
Special thanks to E’bet and Bella.

“Special guests and new songs are highly likely, as these two myth-making ladies have always been full of the best surprises. Bring a friend, old or new. All ages welcome. All those under 17 get in free (read: we love having the kids at our shows, but please don’t let them run wild during the concert! Thank you).” Special thanks to Stan.

SUNDAY JULY 21, Betsy and I get to play a hometown show at last! The SoulTribe hooked us up, like they always do. Betsy will play a set of her own, as well, and there’s a 90% chance of special guests!

WEEKEND OF JULY 26-28, Betsy, Alec and I be back at FAERIEWORLDS in Oregon, all solo and all together as Tricky Pixie! The Main Stage schedule is packed with awesome, and we have TWO other stages this year: Neverworlds AND the Village stage! Sharon Knight is coming back, Omnia will be there for the first time, and we get shows from Woodland, Kytami, Stellamara, Delhi 2 Dublin and more!

Mt. Pisgah Park
34300 Frank Parrish Road
Eugene,OR 97405
Tickets start at $25. Get them here: http://www.faerieworlds.com/store/

Our schedule for the weekend is as insane as ever: we have a main stage set on Friday and another on Sunday; we have individual solo sets on the Village Stage AND the Neverworlds Stage all weekend long; we’ll have a vendor booth in the Neverworlds area (it has flames on it!!) and Lost Boy/Lost Girl shenanigans are bound to erupt. It’s always a wild time in the Realm. Thanks to Emilio, Robert, and Kelly and all our Fae tribe for bringing us home again.

SOMETHING EXCITING: it’s entirely possible that Mr. Matt Hawk and I will make a VERY special announcement at Faerieworlds, about an upcoming shared project that we’ve been cooking bit by bit over the past several months, that we hope to bring to a roiling boil before too much longer. It’s got to do with Wendy and Peter and the Lost Girls Pirate Academy. Stay tuned. πŸ˜‰

MY AUGUST TOUR will take me from Eugene, OR back to Denver, Kansas City (finally), Chicago (yay!) and St. Louis! More shows to come later that month and September, likely in Arkansas and Tennessee, but definitely in Alabama (for the first time!) and Georgia (Gathering of the Tribes festival). I’m posting everything on https://sjtucker.com/tour/ as soon as each show gets confirmed, so please take a peek and check out what’s coming.

I can’t resist sharing with you the first show of August, because it’s something I’ve been looking forward to for over a year. My Oregon peeps, I hope that you’ll be there. Thanks to my favorite Storyteller, we get to do it up right in a REAL theater!

Shared Show with Sooj, Betsy, and Mark Lewis!
The Richard E. Wildish Community Theater
630 Main Street
Springfield,OR 97477
$15. Tickets will be available online very soon!
For now, feel free to call the Theater: (541) 868-0689

Many of you know Mark as one of our beloved Faerieworlds Masters of Ceremonies, with his top hat and shining smile. He’s also a master storyteller of the first degree, and every once in a while, I get to share a show with him- to watch him perform, and even to make music while he makes fantastic tales come to life. I promise you’ll be spellbound. Mark and Betsy and I are even figuring out how we can share even more of this concert than usual, by weaving new songs and stories together. It’s gonna be magical like never before. Please spread the word!

The Wildish is a beautiful theater. Take their virtual tour here: http://www.wildishtheater.com
