It was the best of times – it was the worst of times – NAH, it was the Summer of SUCK. (TLDR: Lots of health issues, a couple of studio issues, but Emma Langford and other folx made it all better) I thought I had coined this term myself, but then discovered that it wasContinue reading “The Summer of Suck”
Tag Archives: Emma Langford
I am very excited to announce that I am hosting Emma Langford in a house concert on August 12, 2022. I have talked about Emma in these blogs several times, both in the context of World Voice Weekend and, the first time, about how inspired I was her (“Her voice was broken, so I singContinue reading “House Concert!”
Taking a break
As I indicated previously, this was a long year, and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. So I’ve decided that I’m taking a break. Not from teaching, although I have condensed my schedule significantly, and not from singing, although there won’t be that much of it during the summer. I’ve decided that this summer is goingContinue reading “Taking a break”
On June 5, I will be hosting a showcase featuring 12 of my current students performing primarily ensembles from musical theater, opera, and nu-folk. The performance will be at Trinity Episcopal Church in Towson at 3pm and is free to the public. I have done a few studio programs since I’ve been back in BaltimoreContinue reading “Showcase 2022!”
I’m heading off to Milwaukee Irish Fest this weekend (my own Music’s Path – more to be explained at the bottom of this post), so here is a 2017 blogpost about what Irish music means to me. (Excuse the spacing – this was imported from a different platform.) When I think of Irish music, IContinue reading “Music’s Path”

World Voice Weekend – One Month to Go!
(Well, actually, it’s one month till the second day of it, but you know what I mean.) Last week, I wrote about our acting sessions with Izzie Baumann and Matt Bender. Today I want to talk about the rest of my clinicians and the variety of things we’ll be offering. Singing is a whole-body experience,Continue reading “World Voice Weekend – One Month to Go!”
World Voice Brunch!
Years ago, I was a big listener to NPR’s World Cafe with David Dye. It was on in the evenings, and I really enjoyed listening to the variety of music that was played. There was a lot of world music, folk, singer-songwriter, indie rock, lots of cross-genre kind of programming. Eclectic programming is my jam.Continue reading “World Voice Brunch!”
World Voice Weekend Lineup finalized!!
I am so excited about the lineup for World Voice Weekend. I am waiting for one letter of agreement to come back (which I sent out yesterday and asked for by Friday, so I’m not worried about it), and this is what it looks like (working titles in some cases). I’ve attached links to eachContinue reading “World Voice Weekend Lineup finalized!!”
The Winding Way Down to 2021
Heck of a year, ain’a? [Definition of Ain’a: Milwaukee version of the French phrase “ne c’est pas,” meaning, “isn’t it?” Often includes “hey” at the end for added emphasis] I don’t have too much to say except I’m looking forward to the beginning of 2021, because it really has to get better, right? I haveContinue reading “The Winding Way Down to 2021”
