Daughter Sara and I made the front page and the feature story of the MARIETTA DAILY JOURNAL for our duo performances at the Strand, Marietta Square, summer of 2015. Hope to make a return appearance this summer!
Thanks to old friend, Therra Gwynn for promoting us!

Premiered my new one woman show on Rosalynn Carter and the Monarch Butterfly Trail at the recent
Chatauqua in Plains in October, 2015 with the Carters in attendance.  Received a standing ovation and praise from the Carters.  Not so easy playing someone in front of that person, and an icon at that.  The Carters are uniquely special and a treasure to us as Americans.  Will be repeating this show and hope to take it on the road.  See some photos below.
