Well things are finally starting to open up a little! Thanks to vaccinations, we can now begin to share music together in person in one place (mostly outside, but that's okay!). So our weekly Music Workshop sessions have resumed under the Timber Frame at the Commons, and that's a great start! And the Silva Bay Market has invited me to perform on Sunday July4 from 10 am to 2 pm. I will be joined by our son Josh Gellman, so that should be great as well! I'm also dreaming of an outdoor concert later on in the summer, so stay tuned!
Hunkered down in the midst of COVID! We are very lucky to live where we are, and keep trying to stay safe and healthy and in touch with our loved ones. We're not out of the woods yet, so patience, patience... We look forward to the day when we can once again gather together, even hug each other, and celebrate the passing of this storm. It will get better! Stay tuned...
We are excited to release our new "old" album "island Celebration Remastered", originally recorded in 1978, remastered by Greg Pauker in 2019. It is available on CD or download, check the Music page on this site for more details!
We actually did a live outside concert! With the core members of the band! Monday Aug. 31, 5 pm at The Commons. We have a video and audio recording the concert on video, and hope to be able to release some clips of our live performance. And who knows when we will be able to do this again, so this is a big one for me. It was fabulous!!
In these times of isolation, I have been fortunate to be able to complete my new album, and record several videos of tunes to share on Facebook and Youtube.
My new album "Globalize" was released on June 28, including a Live Zoom Launch with Brad Shipley, where we also introduced the official video for "Gotta Keep Our Hope Alive". For more information and to order, visit the Music page. Thanks!
I have been creating home video recordings of some of my tunes, around once a week. These clips are available on Youtube (click the link at the bottom of the page), and Facebook.
