Greetings, friends and fellow music lovers — oh what a year it has been! My heart is full with gratitude for all of you who have hosted me, cheered me on, encouraged my path, walked beside me, made music with me, and shared this incredible slice of time with me. This is the season for slowing down, hibernating, reflecting, and making the best of these dark afternoons! So I will keep things short and sweet because y’all are busy and it’s a hectic time of year.
I want to share with you one of my favorite holiday songs, “The Peace Carol”. One of my favorite memories was singing this with Billy Crockett and David Wilcox at Blue Rock at one of their beautiful Christmas shows. I am wishing you peace for this holiday season and beyond. Take a listen down below…

I excited to be a part of two benefit shows this month, and each is very close to my heart. In Eugene we will be hosting our 5th annual Caldera Songwriters Group Concert to benefit the Egan Warming Center! I hope if you’re anywhere near Eugene on Dec 9th, you’ll come celebrate with us, sing with us, and eat a cookie or two. An then on the 16th, I get to be a part of a wonderful house concert with Anne Weiss and Avery Hill to benefit our beloved Artichoke music! Details for both shows are below…
Ohmygosh, what a wonderful time we had at Moab Folk Festival! This is the view from sound check at Star Hall! Sharing the stage two nights in a row with the great Mark Erelli and Jeffrey Focault was so dreamy!
This was taken after the amazing night at the GCTS stage with my friend Sweet Joseph Leavell and Melissa, the founder of Moab Folk Festival!
Aaaaand….I got to go to Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park with my folks…soooo amazing!
Then in Pagosa Springs, my friend the great Bob Hemenger hosted me at his Americana Project class at the high school. We had a workshop during the day and then I got to play a concert for the community at night…so fun!
And then THIS happened!! The Americana Project students jammed out with me on “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!!” Ohmygosh I wish you could have been there!
And then it was on to the amazing Fischer Fest in Texas where I got to play for the warmest, sweetest listening crowd inside of a gorgous wooden dance hall. Jonathan Byrd says it’s like playing on the inside of a guitar, and he’s right! I am a lucky girl indeed!
Thank you for reading this, for cheering me on on my artistic path! I am wishing you a peaceful and joyful holiday season, and I’m looking forward to an amazing 2017 filled with music, new faces and place, and celebration! With gratitude from your fan,
