Happy Winter! We’ve been invited to do several shows this year at fantastic venues.And I haven’t written in some time for my blog. There has been energy moving this year for recording, teaching and bigger optimism suddenly. With very cold weather and some bigger snow in February, March could be cold but bringing it on to Spring. It has not been easy these past 2 years and we have all been through quite a bit of traumatic times, but also good times. I’m not losing sight to be grateful, but sometimes I wonder! To keep going is the main thing x
Saturday evening, March 5th, Scott Dailey and I will be performing at Two James Spirits in Detroit’s Corktown as part of the Corktown Music Festival. Our percussionist Ron Wolf is joining us, too. It’s a benefit for 4 PAWS 1 Heart for homeless pets, so come on down to warm up and enjoy some music, spirits and good March hope. And wish Scott a happy birthday! Two James Spirits, 2445 Michigan Avenue, Detroit 48216 (313) 961-4800. https://www.metrotimes.com/detroit/no-hamtramck-music-fest-in-march-but-corktown-music-fest-instead/Content?oid=29349382
And further down the road into May, June and July and beyond, we’ll be performing at The Cadieux Café in Detroit, 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, several music festivals in the Detroit area/Northern Michigan area and a possible return overseas to the U.K. – and possibly some April surprises with shows and traveling!
Thanks so much for the submissions in this year’s Detroit Music Awards. Scott Dailey is up for Outstanding Guitarist and the Carolyn Striho Group is up for Outstanding Live Act. I’m happy to be considered for Outstanding Songwriter, Vocalist, Keyboardist and Artist. https://www.detroitmusicawards.net/categories-for-2022

Love and hope remains! x
