Stafford releases new CD, performs songs Jan. 21 and Feb. 16
January 19, 2010
Hello Lewis & Clark Community,
I wanted to let you know about two performances from my new CD “Pilgrim at Home: Vagabond Songs” (Little Infinities, 2010).
The new CD is part of my on-going project called “Pilgrim at Home: Local Encounters Beyond the Epoch of the Car,” kindly funded by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
The songs celebrate encounters by the road—with a witness in New Orleans, a lonesome woman at the Kaupo Store, the family of three lost boys in Rasharkin, a homeless saint in Portland, and other precious strangers.
In singing these stories, I am accompanied by musician and music teacher Jan DeWeese on mandolin, and by musician and teacher Harriet Wingard on violin.
Please enjoy these upcoming performances:
