| February 2021  ....  PART 2

Hello Dear One,

Just dropping into your inbox with a quick reminder that TONIGHT is my premiere YouTube Live performance, a special "Folk Unlocked Showcase" that is part of the Folk Alliance International Conference 2021. 

This concert will be recorded, so you can always watch it later at your convenience, but if you are able to tune in live tonight, I would be delighted to have your company!

I've been tuning into as many panels, workshops and showcases as I can in the past couple days as I "attend" the Folk Alliance Conference from my kitchen table, and am feeling most inspired. As Margaret Atwood said in her keynote interview with Anais Mitchell on Monday, "The arts are the core of what it is to be a human being" and "music is the heart of the matter.

with love & song always,
~ Amanda

A NOTE ON INCLUSION:  All of you are welcome here.
I have led many, many *women’s* events in my time. I love gathering with women in sacred circle and song, AND…

There are too many people who feel left out of these circles, who I very much want to be included ~ those who don’t have wombs, transwomen, non-binary people, anyone who connects with the feminine space and energy.

Writing a long tagline of explanations and definitions after “women” doesn’t fit well in promotional spaces, so I’m trying out something new: A WOMXN’s event (still pronounced “women.”)

My hope is that “X” will give the invitation and sense of welcome and safety that is so messy to write any other way.

YOU, yes, YOU I want to feel welcome. All of you. In our sacred, feminine circle, honoring the seasons and the earth which holds us all.  I do hope you will join Debbie & I!

Music of the Month ~ 

This full length singer/songwriter album deserves a moment in the spotlight as we celebrate its 13th birthday!  This was my first solo album, released on February 15th, 2008. 

Showcasing: Intimate lyrics, shimmering vocals, steadfast guitar, and all the heart of my 24-year-old-self. Plus special guests, Anton Patzner (of Foxtails Brigade) on violin, and David Brewer (of Molly's Revenge and The Fire) on bagpipes.

If you've never heard it, or haven't thought about it in a while, head on over to bandcamp (which happens to be running a special this Friday - ALL money will go direct to the artists on 2/26), give it a listen and wish it a Happy Birthday.
