The Word For Luck Reunion Is – WOW!!!

I was a lucky (pun intended) person indeed to have traveled to Austin for Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion earlier this month. I knew artists who performed there in past years and always regretted not being there, but finally got the chance this year.

This one-day event is held in Willie’s backyard (if it can be said that a ranch was a backyard) with only 2,000 tickets sold, so everyone who attends is lucky.

Another Amazing Artist Is Coming To The Lowell Summer Music Series

Angélique Kidjo, one of my favorite African artists (and one of my favorite artists, period) is coming to the Lowell Summer Music Series. She will appear at Boarding House Park on Sunday, July 14th! I have seen her several times (including last night at World Music’s CrashFest) and already cannot wait to see her again! I believe she is the first African musician to headline a show at the Series (many African performers have appeared at the Lowell Folk Festival over the years, however).

RIP Mike Ledbetter, 1985-2019

I was devastated by the news of Mike Ledbetter‘s untimely death at the way-too-young age of 33 last week. My heart breaks for him, his family and friends. I am fortunate to have been able to call him a friend…
