Greetings dear Golden Nuggets of Goodness,
What were they thinking? I have been invited by the illustrious and industrious Penny Nichols to join the crew at Wintersongs, a winter time version of her fabulous Summersongs retreat. This is a songwriter’s and musician’s camp, and from Friday, Feb 17 until Monday, Feb 20, we will be spending a cozy weekend in Ashokan, in the Catskills of New York. I’m joining in as a teacher for the first time. Other teachers include Joe Crookson, Penny Nichols, Vito Petrocitto, Sue Riley, Glen Roethel, David Roth and Sloan Wainwright.
My classes will be centered on story telling and working our stories up into songs. We are also going to talk about the care and feeding of our audience.
I wholeheartedly anticipate that I will be getting more from this weekend than I could possibly offer, but I offer myself up none the less. I can’t wait to meet the campers, my fellow teachers, and our fearless leader, Penny.
If you are looking for a beautiful place to spend a winter weekend, with great food, great people and great fun, come join us! Here’s the web address: www.summersongs.com.
See you there and/or somewhere on that beautiful road.
Dear Golden Nuggets of Goodness,
We’re trying out this download capability of my albums here at katetaylor.com. We’ve started with “Sister Kate”, the album I made in Los Angeles in 1971. This record was produced by my then manager and producer, Peter Asher. If you would like information about who played on this record and how the songs got chosen, etc, or if you want a copy of the art work, please let me know.
It was very cool to be in Los Angeles at the time we were recording. Hey, it’s cool to be in LA anytime. But those days were special. If you have any interest in reading some tales from those days, I’m going to be posting some soon. Meantime, check out “Sister Kate” and let me know how your “shopping” experience is on this site. We want to make it nothing but pleasurable!
Kate will be appearing Sunday, September 25th at 1:30 pm at the wonderful venue, the Infinity Hall and Bistro, in Norfolk, CT.
20 Greenwoods Road West
Norfolk, CT 06058
Kate is at The Me and Thee Coffeehouse in Marblehead, MA on Sept 23rd. Showtime: 8:00.

Kate is at The Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY on Oct 5.
Kate is at the Cape Cod Cultural Center in West Yarmouth, MA, on Oct 15.
We’re still working on getting our latest releases up and available for you to acquire on this page. If you would like to contact me personally to get copies of any of my recordings, write me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have this amazing musical friend, Jemima James. She is a gifted writer and a grand person all around.
She has many friends who play music too, and she has invited a number of us to play on her show, the Jemima James Variety Show, at the Featherstone Art Gallery in Oak Bluffs, MA on Monday, July 18, out in the back field at 6:30. I urge you all to come. For my part, I will be singing with Jemima a couple of Hazel Dickens-Alice Gerrard songs that we do together. Jemima’s dynamic son, Willy Mason will be there, along with the incomparable Nina Violet, the soft and sultry Lexi Roth, the guitar playing humorist Dan Waters; yes, the list goes on and on. Here’s your chance to get a taste of some of the sweetest grapes on the Vineyard’s vines. Tying it all together is this wonderful soulful sister, Jemima James.
I had the nicest visit with friend Gretchen Baer yesterday. We were on the porch. Look what greeted her. This dear plant of mine sits in it’s pot all winter, waiting for it’s chance to spend some time outside getting rain and direct, if dappled, sunshine. This makes it so very happy that look at what it does!
I had a chance to do some painting with Gretchen. Stay tuned for further painting adventure posts.
