Upcoming Gigs

Dear Music Tribe –
Lots of cancellations here, and they reflect, of course, the uncertainty of these times. Each of our spring and summer bookings is linked to organizations and organizers who are already looking forward to re-scheduling the events, some during 2020 and some in 2021. And they understand the need, right now, to reduce health risks for us all. So check back. We’ll be performing and teaching and jamming with you all soon.
Meanwhile, we are both healthy, and grateful for the time to play music together at home. We are making time to practice and write. And oh, the home cooking! Big news here is that the 1000 piece picture puzzle is finally out of the box! When that is the big news, you know we have settled in for a bit.
We wish you all health, and safety, and peace through these troubled and troubling times.
Lorraine and Bennett Hammond
