Summer @ the Traveler’s Table and to worlds beyond

This summer has been a bounty of peaceful scenery, music making and listening, and lots of communing with friends and family. I’ve been performing only my original songs at the Traveler’s Table. This has helped me to delve deeper into my personal repertoire and has inspired me to continue writing new songs. It has been so exciting to add the cello to more songs.

Greg Kirlin and Chris Johansson continue to serve tasty home made creations at the Traveler’s Table. This week saw a batch of Gazpacho made with locally grown organic tomatoes, a multi-layered Greek Salad, Teriyaki bowls with chicken or steak, and a bountiful pork rib dinner!

Traveling across the country to Eugene for the Faerieworlds Festival, I saw and heard many wonderful musicians. here are some photos of the bands I heard. The inimitable Jessica Star and Woodland. Woodland is responsible for starting and continuing with many successful years of Faerieworlds. This year’s headliners were the Pagan folk band Omnia. Unfortunately my photos didn’t do them justice. Brother is a highly contagious band that features the bagpipes and didgeridoo. Plus I had to get a special braid in my hair to be in the spirit.

Getting into a car and driving to Seattle to re-connect with friends and extended family meant a lot to me. I met cousins I haven’t seen for a gadzillion years! and dear sweet friends!
