...and time to say hello to the beginning of a long, difficult, and earnest new era for our country and for the world. The events of January 6th are the exclamation point of a too-long run-on sentence that had sentenced and subjected us to a mindset - a mindset that once again spilled over into what we've just witnessed and experienced.

Not to be overlooked in the aftermath is the election of two new Senators from the state of Georgia and a shift in Congress as a result.

It's time for a shift, as yesterday so graphically showed the world.

Let's get together this weekend. New songs. Old songs.
The Linden Tree and Ivy Chord Coffeehouses (both in Massachusetts) are co-sponsoring a virtual concert with yours truly this Saturday night, January 9th @ 7:30 PM Eastern Time (I've given up trying to figure out how/when to call it EST or EDT). We'll be broadcasting from Zoom and streaming to Facebook Live and YouTube, and you can access in the following ways:

Meeting ID: 924 4439 3756
Passcode: 762466
Facebook Live

I've got my Trusty Techwhiz Brandon O'Sullivan of Clover Media at the controls, managing the broadcast, the chats, and the after-gathering (where we can say hi a bit in the zoomroom once the music is done.
Comin' up...
