Ok, so it's pretty cold and blustery hereabouts but I have seen the crocuses and the jonquils and a few hardy fruit trees blossoming, and I do believe the season is here.
Just finished teaching a lyric-writing course at Riverdale Country School which I really enjoyed. It was part of a creative writing course in the high school there taught by the multi-talented Sarah Banks. (Sarah is also a fantastic violinist.) We listened to some classic songs and some of the kids' current favorites, and we did a lot of writing. It was fun getting to know what some highly intelligent 16-year-olds are listening to these days. (There were plenty of surprises and some very excellent new writing too.)
WOOL&GRANT had a fine foray into New England on our tour last month. Thanks so much for cheering us on.
We were also very happy to be included in the one-day NERFA showcase in New Jersey at the beginning of this month. A smile fest all around.
Coming up there are some great shows and workshops I hope you'll join in on. Check out the calendar page. I just updated it so you can see more detail there. This Friday (4/18) WOOL&GRANT is at the Two Moon Art House & Cafe in Brooklyn with Carolann Solebello and Elisa Peimer. In May I'm leading some writing workshops, and WOOL&GRANT will be featured at the 11th Annual Mamapalooza Outdoor Extravaganza at Pier 1 (70th Street) on May 18th. More on the calendar page.
