Four Fun Things

Just because life is not all work....

This Friday evening, Real Art Ways has a premiere of the bio-pic An Unreasonable Man which will be attended by the protaganist of the film, Mr. Ralph Nader. I am hoping to be there....

On Saturday, Zippy is spearheading a trip to Wesleyan University for a concert by Abigail Washburn, bringing her "...unique blend of Appalachian mountain music and haunting Chinese melodies to Wesleyan for an evening of music, history and crossing cultural boundaries." No idea how the Zipster stumbled across this one, but it sounds interesting, and Zippy's eclectic tastes never fail to broaden my horizons and entertain.

On Sunday, Snatam Kaur is coming to Bryan Memorial Town Hall, Washington Depot, CT. Concert info and tickets here. She is actually up in NoHo on the night before (3/31) but I'm already booked. Not sure if I will make her concert in CT ($25 is a little pricey) but you never know....

And finally, West Hartford Yoga's bimonthly Kirtan is coming up on Friday, April 13th:
Join us for an evening of devotional singing, chanting, and personal expression. Kirtan is part of an ancient form of yoga known as Bhakti, or the Yoga of Devotion. The meditative quality of the music promotes a joyousness of spirit. Shankara leads our group in chants and songs in Sanskrit and English, from ancient Vedic text to traditional American music. Kirtan is for everyone, the experience itself offers possibilities of personal discovery or simply, the joy of raising one's voice in song. Allow yourself the gift of making a joyous noise. It's all about the spirit and the feeling. Bring yours to share! Expect surprises and unannounced musical guests! $5 suggested donation. No registration required.

I'm excited for Kirtan - I am honored to be counted among the "and Friends" as a musician at this celebration / devotion, and to be able to add my talents and energy to the joyous noise that always ensues.

Now, back to work!
