Musical Notes

May 2021

I’m so glad that summer is finally here! Wait, it’s still spring, isn’t it? We’ve certainly had our share of everything from snow to August-like temperatures these past few weeks. As they always say, if you don’t like the weather in Central New York, wait a day.

Now that COVID-19 fatalities have fallen to their lowest rate in 14 months, and evidence continues to grow that the U.S. is leaving coronavirus behind, I am feeling like life is getting back to “normal”. For the first time in over a year, my family has been able to celebrate birthdays in person. My youngest will be turning 25 this coming weekend.

I’ve also heard from many of you that you are opening your doors (or at least your outdoor spaces) to live entertainment again. I’ve had several bookings in May, and June is looking to be busy as well.

If you would like to schedule me to entertain your folks, please let me know. I am fully vaccinated, wear a mask at all times unless I am singing, have a plexiglass shield for my microphone, and all the equipment needed for a safe and socially distant concert.

As well, I continue to offer online concerts via Zoom, Facebook Live and Microsoft Teams.

I hope to hear from you soon!

April 2021

It’s been a very busy month for me for a lot of reasons.

Since the pandemic, I’ve been the main source of transportation for my family when they have various medical appointments. In the first 15 days of April, I took family members to and from 8 appointments. On top of that, I am now fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

In other busyness, I’ve joined an online improvisational music ensemble and have contributed to several songs. It’s interesting to hear what other people do with a chord progression that I came up with.

Lastly, I have started to do live music again at area facilities. Sometimes I am outside (if the weather is nice), sometimes inside (where people are masked and socially distanced). In either case, I take precautions to make it a safe experience for everyone. I have a plexiglass shield for my microphone, and wear a mask at all times unless I am singing.

Let me know if you’d like to schedule a date this spring, I’m already booking into June!

Thanks again for your support!

March 2021

Well, spring has definitely sprung. Here in Syracuse, the familiar signs are here: geese returning, robins hopping around our lawn, crocuses and snowdrops blooming, and today, rain. We even managed to get a few seeds and young plants in the soil in our backyard garden over the weekend.

My music performances have been picking up a bit over the last few months with shows including a concert of classic love songs from the 1930s-1950s in February, and an all-Irish music program in early March. This weekend I’ll be doing one of my most popular shows: Perennial Sing-a-long Favorites along with some fun Easter songs.

Please keep me in mind to play for your folks when you get the go ahead to bring in live entertainment. As well, I am able to do live video concerts via Zoom, Facebook Live or Microsoft Teams if you’d prefer.

Thanks again for your support over the years!
