I’m so excited to announce that I’m doing a really fun workshop on July 26th. The Queen City Balladeers have asked me to come and lead one of my special programs with your kids at the Cincinnati Art Museum – we are calling it KidSong!
We will learn a fun folk song, make instruments, and then, ladies and gentleman, we will write our own song using the folk traditions we talk about during the session. There will be a collective of folk musicians on hand to interact with your kids and even jump in and add their traditional folk instrumentation to our songs and make the day really special. I’ve got lots of joy-filled activities planned, so come on down and join us. It will be a great day.
KidSong will be held Saturday, July 26th at the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Artworld Room from 2:00-4:00 P.M.
This event is open to children between the ages of 5 and 12, with caregivers attendance required. The maximum attendance is 50 children and caregivers, so pre-registration is required.
There will be $4.00 charge for parking at the museum, but event attendees will be reimbursed by the QCB.

Special Thanks to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation for sponsoring this program.
Medieval Games! Waldorf School Sixth Graders from 6 schools gather here in Cincinnati and spend the day roaming the woods with their Shires, tackling challenges like zip lines and mud dashes. I was the lead organizer this year, and it was an absolute blast! This pictures sums it all up nicely: the camaraderie, the joy, the MUD! It is so good to be a Waldorf kid. Where do I sign up?

Well, hey, whaddya know? It is already April 8th again. The past year has been interesting, complicated, profound and altering. I learned so much I can barely keep up with myself.
But some things are still the same. Always. My heart full of songs, my love of story, the joy of being in Nature, my mega-watt curiosity about people, places and ideas. And my passion for adventures – both real and imaginary.
I’m working on a novel for someone just about your age, and I am ridiculously excited about it. My daughter and I are planning away and really ready to go for it with a garden in the backyard. You can follow our ideas here. I’ve got a few new songs up my sleeve and a few shows scheduled with plenty more in the works. I’m not doing any camps this summer because I started a new job that I really love, but I do have a few weekend workshops coming together that will be super special.
Perhaps I’ll see you this weekend at The Carnegie Center for The ArtsWave Sampler event. I’m on at 11:30. We’ll have fun!
