So thrilled to be able to celebrate the release of my 4th studio album, BONA FIDE, at one of the finest listening rooms anywhere, The Ark - Ann Arbor! It is also my birthday, which brings something extra special to the evening. Joining me are my band members who all played a significant part in the development and recording process for this album. With endless thanks to David Roof/Rooftop Recording Studio (engineering, keys, guitar, background vocals); John Sperendi (bass, background vocals); Alan Pagliere (pedal steel); Tony Pace (electric guitar); and Brian Williams (percussion) and to producer Ben Sayler, my son and creative listening ear, who was instrumental in bringing out the heart of each song. Special guest opener is a favorite artist of mine, the wonderful Annie Bacon. To add to the event, I will have available for purchase photos from my Jerusalem Road series, a rural area just outside of Ann Arbor I love to photograph. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, an organization that works to preserve these precious natural spaces.

Tickets: $25 (reserved $33)
