Naomi returns to the place where her solo singer-songwriter career had its start, the heart of Boston's folk music scene, Club Passim in Harvard Square. She will sing in the round with Lisa Bastoni (Naomi's partner in the old-time-slow-grass duo Gray Sky Girls), Jackie Giroux, and Hayley Sabella. The day-pass for this festival is only $10, and a weekend pass is $25!! An amazing deal, and the opportunity to hear and discover so many great musicians in one place.
Naomi will sing one song with the fabulous Canadian band, Sultans of Swing! Come check out this exciting evening of diverse styles and fantastic songs and playing by a band led by Chris McKool, fiddler player from Toronto whom Naomi met many years ago at a jazz program they both participated in.
I will be performing (exact time and location TBA soon) at Earth Day March organized by Sustainable Thompkins. Here is what will be going on that day in Ithaca:
"Join us for our Ithaca Earth Day event centered around the national March for Climate, Jobs and Justice in Washington DC on Saturday April 29. We’re hoping for at least 1,000 marchers in Ithaca to visibly show our concern for the rapid deterioration of the planet, as well as the need for local and statewide leadership on energy democracy, green jobs, and environmental justice.
We’re asking marchers to gather at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Ithaca Commons at 11:30 AM for live music and speakers. At 12:15, the march will proceed on a marked route to the Space @ Greenstar, to enjoy more music, food vendors, speakers, and exhibits framed around the themes of Keep it in the Ground, Clean Energy, and Low Carbon Living."
Join Naomi and Lisa for an evening of original and traditional acoustic songs. We'll play the show on stage together, trading songs, accompanying one another on harmony vocals or various instruments. We will also revive some of our Gray Sky Girls repetoire!! (That was our old-time-slow-grass duo from back in the days before moved far away from one another, and before we had kids... we were just "girls", ah.)
