I was so pleased when Kendall asked if the three of us could do a concert together - honestly I think that should be the tagline for this thread.
Part of the history - I wrote the song "The Promise of the Sowing" five years ago in Maine, the day before going into South Portland for a house concert at the very same venue. I tried the song out for the first time that night, reading it off a sheet of paper. Kendall was especially taken with it, and since he is one of the artists whose opinion I most respect, I kept singing it, and eventually made it the centerpiece of a new CD, released just this week.
And of course, there's Singing Through the Hard Times - the tribute to Utah Phillips Kendall, Jacqui and I put together six years ago. Producing that CD was, as Kendall commented, "like trying to wrap two watermelons together in wax paper," but oh my goodness, did it work out well.
Plus - well, they're just good people, and they perform first rate songs well. They tell me the show will mostly be me, but I'm especially looking forward to a bit of Jacqui and Kendall. They don't get out to perform often enough.
