This is a wee bit later than usual - well, it IS August on Cape Cod -- but we had a BLAST at the beautiful Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater last Tues with that full house! What a beautiful space to perform in! It was our first time there and, I hope - and judging from the numbers on a Tuesday night - won't be our last! Thanks to everyone who showed up, esp on a sweltering night! Huge shout out and thanks to our fantastic sound tech Darby Smotherman, Fred Boyle, piano and Rich Hill on bass. What a team. I'm so fortunate to have you all with me! On to Provincetown for our Carnival show August 20 (see "Events" on this page for tics!) after the fabulous Newport Jazz Festival - in PERFECT weather! (Phew)

WOW! What an incredible weekend of performances, all genres, at National Women's Music Festival in Madison, WI! Amazing, generous audiences, fantastic production crew, all while glamping at The Marriott. Playing with extraordinary pianist Tomoko Ohno and bassist Noriko Ueda was divine, and being guest vocalist with Sherrie Maricle & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra was an absolute dream come true! My heart is full. Huge thanks to everyone who's worked so hard to keep this great festival alive for 44 years and to the devoted audience who shows up to make that possible! Onward, badass warriors!

The brutality of the music business. "This is Scooter Braun, bullying me on social media when I was at my lowest point. He's about to own all the music I've ever made," Swift wrote. "Now Scooter has stripped me of my life’s work, that I wasn’t given an opportunity to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it."
GREAT Provincetown Film Society & Festival last weekend! A highlight - the extreme pleasure of meeting the truly great, generous and gracious (as human, activist, and artist with SERIOUS chops) Judith Light, thanks to my dear friends, fantastic fashion designer David Josef Fashions and Daniel James Forrester, who snapped the pic. ♥️
