About this event

This concert will be a ritual. It will happen in a place that is dear to me, a place with acoustics both comforting and overwhelming. I’ve been visiting this place for years. It has taken care of me and for that I am grateful. I will be singing to this place and to you, us, me—my body—this transgendered body still recovering from covid and heartbreak. I will be accompanied by live electronics. My songs and extended vocal improvisations draw from the pagan oral tradition of regilaul. They are incantations and lullabies; simple songs sung to hold rage and transmute communal exhaustion. This is folk music in as much as I sing it to lessen the pain of living. 

Come. Let us lose ourselves together in this place. And maybe find one another; in the land, in feeling, and in listening. —
