Healing Garden Musicfest

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

Vessela Stoyanova (MIDI Marimba) will be joining me for a very special set of Celtic music.
Before the rock band, before the self-exploratory songwriting, there were chunes!

Vess and I will be joining Edmond Boudreau and The J.P. Cormier Trio as part of Terry Eagan and Patio Records’ 12th annual Boston Healing Garden Musicfest.
This is going to be a great evening of Downeast, Maritime, Celtic and Folk music.

All proceeds will benefit the Mary Eagan Garden and the Children’t Hospital Boston in Waltham.

Here are the details:

Fluttr Effect @ Middle East Corner

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

Come join us this Friday April 11th at the Middle East Corner for a
Benefit to Free Tibet!
This is an all ages show and all proceeds will go to Students for a
Free Tibet
to support their work to help Tibet regain its freedom.

Vessela and I will be playing an acoustic set of original music,
spanning the universal themes of death and getting laid with the
occasional tango thrown in for good measure.

Dan Hayes and Kaitie Bickel, and the Cassavettes will also be sharing
their music for the cause.

April shows are happening!

This Friday (April 11th) I will be playing at the Middle East Corner for a Free Tibet Benefit.

Also, I will be playing a rare Celtic gig on Saturday April 26th at the French Club Hall in Waltham.  All the proceeds from this performance will go to the Mary Eagan Garden at Children’s Hospital Boston.

For more information on these shows, check out the live page.

I’ve been doing tons of writing and a wee bit of recording.  Fluttr Effect has been doing some serious recording at Belmeat Studios.  Pics coming soon.

Spring is upon us, go get some flowers and start taking your allergy meds!
