Deer Haven House Concert, Taftville, CT
May 19 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

TrioPoseWe return to Dale and Rita’s Deer Haven home to entertain you, this time during Spring time. Join us and our musical soulmate Caith Threefires (on bass, mandolin, and keyboard) as we regale you with our enchanting brand of Celtic folk! Intimate and honest, this will be a limited seating house concert.

You will receive the address after you RSVP using the ticket link (coming soon, please check back).

Festival Favorites Sharon Knight and Winter are internationally touring musicians in the mythic-Celtic vein. Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, “Neofolk Romantique”. This often sound less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine. They have shared stages with mythic music favorites such as Faun, Omnia, Corvus Corax, SJ Tucker, Tricky Pixie, Heather Dale, Wendy Rule, Stellamara, and many more. They have recently completed a 100% crowd-funded CD and music video featuring several of these artists, called Portals.

Well of Song at Faerewood, Bel Air, MD @ Faerewood
Jun 11 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Most-gorgeous-crescent-moon-everHi Folks!

My Well of Song workshop is a guided meditation combined with improv singing in 3-4 part harmonies. I will assign parts to the group, and once we get started, I will invite participants to draw something from the well, and we will ebb and flow in a swell of song, both wordless and lyrical.

Singing together can be profoundly bonding and healing. It opens your chest, heart, and lungs. It strengthens lungs and helps you master breath, which alleviates anxiety, oxygenates your cells, and invigorates your entire being. Will you come sing with me?
