CALIFORNIA SUMMER CARAVAN--SEE POSTER FOR INDIVIDUAL DATES

Joining up with my dear friend Eric Lindell with whom I'll be a Natural Mystic for a tight happenin' week of dates in California.

Another fellow Mystic is a fave dude and git-slinger Anson Funderburgh, so yeah.

I've done shows with Eric for quite a while now, he's a real special dude and artist, and it's ALWAYS a groovin' blast and righteous repast! We hope to see all my Cally Pallys at one point or another on the Summer Caravan!!

MINNUSH--Bringing Sephardic Music Into The Now! This will be a very special show! These guys are close to my heart, as I co-produced a collection of Sephardic songs with Susan Gaeta a while back.

She has subsequently brought the music further into altogether new territories with a new and vibrant new group, Minnush.

I heard them in DC a few months ago, and simply fell in love with the presence, the journey, the grooves, the musicianship and the charming ebullience with which they honor and present this fabulous music of the Spanish Jewish people who became the Ladino speaking Sephardim of the Balkan States.

Minnush plays living Sephardic music, yes...but there is so much more. They incorporate contemporary influences and give traditional songs new life featuring improvisation, storytelling and virtuosic musicianship by members Susan Gaeta, Gina Sobel, Trevor Pietsch and Kevin Johnson.

The group had its beginnings in Gina’s Virginia Folklife apprenticeship to Susan, who was apprenticed to the great Flory Jagoda ten years earlier. It grew out of an urge to do what folk music has always done – to naturally incorporate new influences and reflect the world around it. In this way, Minnush adds elements of American folk and jazz, while shedding light on the immigration and refugee stories that the songs carry. Minnush is serious, joyful, forward moving and eminently fresh.

Jon Carroll-Songwriters Workshop

 —  —

The Prindle School, 123 Union St , Easthampton, MA 01027

For four Saturdays in October, learn so much about songwriting from three incredibly experienced songwriters. Grammy award winner Jon Carroll kicks off the program with a discussion of the three-act structure in songwriting. Learn to tell a dramatic story with your songs by exploring how rhyming schemes and narrative methods in lyric-writing along with tactical musical arrangements can help elevate your songs to the next level. Then, work with owner Dan Prindle on the nuts and bolts of song structure and how chord progressions can help to create great songs. Wrap up the program with our lead engineer Nate Christy as you learn about how to take the song from idea to reality in the recording studio.
