Welcome! Thanks for coming to visit!
Since much of my work has been devoted to telling the stories of women throughout history, I’ll be highlighting the page where I’ve collected songs and resources for, to date, 99 years of Suffrage. Visit my Celebrating Women’s Suffrage page for a description of the multi-media program I do, plus resources including my Here’s to the Women! CD. We’ve recently added some amazing cards created by Meneese Wall, celebrating historic women. Go to our store to see our entire selection of her work. While you’re there you can click on each card and read about it’s history.
On my upcoming events schedule for this month you’ll find what’s on my musical and performing agenda.
Saturday, April 13th, 2019, we held a benefit concert for the Bellingham Food Bank and celebrated my fifty years as a working musician, It turned out to be a heartwarming and wonderful occasion. This musical journey of mine has been so richly supported by the faith shown in me by so many of you, and it was shown again Saturday night. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!. May this celebration be an expression of gratitude for the community that makes work like mine possible.
You might want to visit my Therapeutic Music page. I am actively engaged in as a Certified Clinical Musician with Hospice of the Northwest, offering music at the bedside of those who may be seriously ill or dying, or who may just need the comfort of music. I’ve now completed two recordings and a song book prepared particularly for this work: Carry Us Through This Night and the newly released Into the Promise of Morning. Visit the Therapeutic Music page, and you’ll learn about other resources.
About two-thirds of the cost of Into the Promise of Morning has been funded by the generous donations of folks like you. This has not only allowed the project to go forward, but it now means that I can move ahead with my plan to give free copies of this CD to hospice workers and patients. That fundraising project is ongoing, so if you would like to find out more about it, and/or donate to it, you can do so by going to our “How Can I Keep from Singing” GoFundMe site. Thank you so much!
In these pages you’ll also find currently scheduled events, recordings, archival photos, and newsletters from 2001 to the present. See the bars to the right in the heading above. Scott has recently completed an archive of lyrics to over one-hundred-sixty songs, organized by album and by category. We’ll be adding new content as the months go by, so please do come back and visit. We’ve added a category called Back Pages, which will include “Basement Tapes”, previously unpublished songs and poems, a page for Jen and Kristin (now up!), Washington History, Spirituality, and more!
You can also visit me on Facebook, where you’ll also be notified of my occasional newsletters, now posted at my Linda’s Occasional Newsletter page on this website. I am also in the process of developing a YouTube channel with old and new performances by me and others, recordings and more. We’ll keep you apprised of these developments as this continues to evolve.
Forward Into Light!
