Songwriting Workshop 

In November I was one of four artists invited to present workshops for the high school students at the Maine Coast Waldorf School in Freeport , ME. I had 13 students, all very well prepared to work on their songwriting. At the end of the three days they performed the songs they had written - I was greatly impressed with their talent, enthusiasm, and support for each other. And what a great school, with a brand new high school building!

MASC "Silver" for Dews Tune 

My song, "Bread Out Of Stones" won Silver in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest Vocal/Jazz Blues category! Gold and Silver winners were invited to perform at the Association's Gala at Jammin Java in Vienna, VA on Jan. 19, and I enjoyed doing that despite being without my bass player, Henry Cross.

New CD Shaping Up 

I'm working hard now trying to finish up on a ten song collection, "Loves Cane Syrup". The name was suggested by my children - they were trying to think of how to describe their Dad, and I have always preferred cane syrup,though it's mostly a thing of the past.
