Hi all, it's been a long period of silence and inactivity on my end. When the pandemic struck the US, I was working on recording my Edgar Allan Poe inspired album "Mysterious Star." I had slipped two discs in my neck a few weeks prior to the lockdowns, and I would be unable to play harp for the next nine months. All my hard-earned, exciting gigs for 2020 would be cancelled. My main livelihood was also threatened. My recording studio would be closed for nine months. I, like many others, fell into a depression. But I'm pleased to finally be booking some outdoor shows for summer 2021. And I am now almost finished recording the album I have been working so hard to arrange for orchestral instruments such as cello, flute, trumpet, horn, glockenspiel, vibes, and hand percussion. There's even a crystal singing bowl on The Raven, and I can't wait for you to hear it!
My trio will be playing the Thursday night picnic series. We're so excited! I'm from this island, and we'll be playing next to the cemetery where my brother is buried. Nick Jozwiak will be playing cello, and Al Cerulo will be playing percussion. The event is free and open to the public, sponsored by the CCC.
