Shimmering at ECSL

Carol Calvert and I had a sweet experience playing with Joseph Salack at the Everyday Center for Spiritual Living on 8/5. What a great service! They truly are “a loving, inclusive, omni-denominational community where we empower each other to live Joy-filled lives EVERY day.” Their celebration is offered every Sunday in the beautiful and acoustically awesome Rivera Chapel of Light located at 417 E. Rodeo Road, SF 87505 .

Here is an Enya tune we did:

What fun to have upright bass! Joseph Salack is the music director for ECSL and kindly jumped in to play with us.

This Gig-filled Weekend ūüéĻ

Thanks to all our friends for coming to hear Jim Harlan and me at Winterowd Fine Art last Friday! What a sweet scene it was. Check it out.

How fun is this? I get to play with three very talented friends, each in different venues this weekend. I’d love to see you!

COMING UP:

We’d all love to see you!

Flute & Guitar, Canyon Rd. Fri 7/20

Thanks to all our peeps who came. What a sweet surprise you were. Wasn’t it fun??

Here’s a clip from that night.¬†Sunny Side of the Street:

Will you be in town Friday, July 20? If so, stop by Winterowd Fine Art at¬†701 Canyon Road between 5 and 7pm. You will be able to meet the wonderful artists represented by Karla Winterowd, during a Group Exhibition called¬†Force of Nature.¬†Jim Harlan will accompany me on guitar. He’s so fun!

About the clip below: A few musical friends camped out on a cool night at Ghost Ranch in May ’18. Ilan Shamir patiently held an iPhone¬†for this video of me and Jim Harlan until we noticed that Ilan was falling asleep which was hysterical! This tune is a mash-up of House of the Rising Sun with lyrics from Amazing Grace. The white square in the middle is a solar light. The flickering light is our campfire. Such a fun night!

August 3, Upper Crust Eldorado

I’m happy to say that pianist Joseph Salack and I are starting to play out. Our first gig is Friday August 3, from 6 – 9 pm at the Upper Crust in ELDORADO¬†(not the one downtown).¬†Joseph and I are having way too much fun improvising modally together. Flute and piano are such a great combination and pure improv. is, for me, the BEST. I feel very lucky to have found someone of Joseph’s creative ability.¬† Here is a sample. We hope to see you!

NOTE TO MY FRIENDS IN ELDORADO: Gila Joy Pascale has worked very hard at Savor Eldorado, where neighbors enjoy local music, art & each other, in private homes. As she is taking a break, I am gladly jumping in. This website was my first fun task.  Please visit the site and contact me via the site if you want to share your music, show your art, and/or host an event. We hope to start up again this summer, in August.

Farmer’s Market 6/10 & 6/20

Jonas Skardis happened by with his camera and kindly sent us this picture.

Vinnie and I played at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market on Saturday, June 10 again on Tuesday, June 20. There’s nothing like this amazing market in Santa Fe. So worth a visit, if just for the experience. I especially love the adorable children who respond to the music, like Cedar, above. His smile was irresistible and his dancing too! In case you haven’t checked it out, the market food is amazing, as are the people. I laughed at one guy with a T-Shirt that said “Life is too short to be a vegetarian.” My body strongly agrees. The locally sourced sausage breakfast burritos sold there are awesome…

Upper Crust Gig, in Town 6/4

Last night was so sweet , playing with Vinnie on the Upper Crust Pizza portal in downtown Santa Fe. Listening to the recordings I see how our music is getting tighter, and more relaxed. Vinnie really can sing and play that guitar. The weather was gorgeous and the place filled up with friends, locals and tourists. Our next time there is Sunday July 9, again 6-9,

On Friday June 23 we’ll play at the Upper Crust Pizza in Eldorado.¬†We’d love to see you!
