Monday, January 23, 2303 - Ages Passing

I’m doing a show featuring the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young on Wednesday to mark the passing of David Crosby, and it has me thinking about time and those who shape our world - personally and collectively. There’s no denying that the baby-boom generation that I am a part of has had a dramatic effect on our country and the world - particularly in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Music had a lot to do with that, and even though I often harken to those heady days of peace and love, I know that those ideals were probably a little naive and impossible to fulfill. But as the pendulum swings back and forth, it’s undeniable that periods of time when we try to make the world a more equal and respectful place are necessary and worthwhile to balance our darker angels. We want to progress as a species and make our world a better place for all people as well as a healthy place for plants and animals and ecosystems. When those who were part of different ages pass on it’s a good time to reflect on what they stood for and where they brought us. Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young collectively and individually gave us a lot to think about and some beautiful music to listen to and be moved by. Their ideals and harmonies were really something to cherish and appreciate. So I’ll do some of their music on Wednesday evening from the different configurations and iterations of the four members. It should be fun! 


What have I been up to? 

I had 12 senior facilities last week, and I enjoyed each and every one. It is a very worthwhile thing to give something that matters to these people who are so deserving of it. 

My Wednesday online show was singing winter songs, and I was a little afraid that it might be too somber, but it was not at all. There were so many fun songs to celebrate the snow and the beauty of winter. I really do love all the seasons! 

My Sunday online show was done at Matt and Deann’s house as a celebration of many of the birthdays of the regular attendees to my shows. It was kind of an online party with everyone dancing and singing along at the house and in their own homes. I think everyone had a great time. 


What am I up to this week? 

I have 11 senior facilities this week, and they will be all over southern Colorado. We’re getting closer to Valentine’s Day, so I’m playing more love songs now. 

My Wednesday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be the music of Crosby Stills, Nash, and Young and their different groupings as I wrote above. Of course I can only do one voice at a time, so we won’t get the wonderful harmonies they were known for, but we can appreciate the clever writing and impact the songs make. Come on out! 

My Sunday online show 7-8:45 mountain time will be favorites and requests this week. I have several tunes I’m working on for this, and I’m anxious to do them. Sunday nights are always a very fun time of camaraderie with audience comments and interaction. You’re always welcome! 


That’s it for this week. I hope you are well and happy as the new year gets in full swing.  

Best always,
