Mar 24, 2010 McMahon School Residency Lewiston ME

Well, what a great 6 days with the fourth grade at McMahon. Thanks to all the kids, all the teachers and the friendly staff who made me welcome. We sang a lot, laughed a lot, the kids helped me remember to take all my gear as I moved among the classrooms, and I believe we all learned a lot. I certainly did.

Our topics were: first, the Native tribes of Maine and New England; second, Westward Expansion; and third, Regions of the country. Our last get-together was a review and sing-along of any songs the kids wanted. They were all wonderful singers, excellent listeners, and good audiences. Teachers, you are to be commended for preparing students to be all those things, and kids, thanks so much for your participation. Thanks also to L/A Arts for the support and sponsorship of this residency. I hope we can continue to collaborate to bring quality enrichment to the students of Lewiston and Auburn. Happy Spring!!

We encourage people to check this place out!! The baked goods, apples and food prepared by Sebastian the chef are really first-class. Thanks to Steve for having us again and we can't wait to do it another time.

Aug 9, 2007 River House Pub, Kennebunk, Maine Kennebunk ME

a terrific show, wonderful to play with B.C. Childress who really knows how to play those rigs and jeels. And I even got to bang on the bodhran. The finale with everyone singing out on Paddy Lay Back will stay in my memory for a long time.

Jul 16, 2007 Peaks Island, Maine

What fun this was! A huge group of 550+ people from all over the country and the world sat overlooking Portland Harbor, eating lobster and listening to the strains of Mom's Home Cookin's music. We rode the ferry over, ate our own lobster dinner, and proceeded to entertain scientists from the American Pharmacological Society. Thanks to Cindy Angerhofer and Stefan Gafner for inviting us. We had a blast.
