We had one heck of a grand time in California this past week. I got to skoot out of New England just in time to miss the big snow, and landed on the sunny side in Los Angeles, where the tangerines were dripping off the trees. I must have had a dozen a day! The antidote to winter is in the heartbeats of those little orange packages. Thank you Jeff and Diane Ross for letting me have at your back yard bounty!
Jeff and I did some rehearsing and had some other fun in Southern California for a few days, then drove the scenic route to Berkeley. My beautiful pal Maria picked me up and took me to Mill Valley and Muir Woods where I got to hug my first Red Wood tree. Sorry you mighty Martha’s Vineyard oaks, I did hug around with a couple of 2,000 year old sentinels. They smelled sweet too and I felt I was hearing the water rushing up them. Go to Muir Woods when you can. You will be sanctified.
Our main mission in the area was to play music and that we did! Freight and Salvage is a fabulous venue with great seats and beautiful sound and we had a great time filling that place up with it, opening up for the amazing, joyous and delightful Albert Lee. You must go see Albert Lee when he is near your town! I would fly across the country to see Albert Lee! Be prepared for your cheeks to hurt from the smiling that you will be doing when you see and hear him play.
The next morning Jeff and I visited another old friend whom I hadn’t seen in over 40 years. That was wonderful. Then it was back to LA, back onto the plane and back to the frozen tundra with my heart beating a little stronger, my joy refreshed and my psyche ready for the wintery slide into the waiting spring.
I’ve added two new pendants (4 if you count your color options) to the pendants collection, just in time for your Holiday shopping and festive, decorative dressing up. That last part of course should go on all year as far as I’m concerned, but that’s a story for another day. Click onto our “STORE” page and get yours and shop for your ever so deserving friends and family today!
Greetings fellow travelers,
I will be joining an illustrious group of great players for a night of celebration of The Band.
What’s not to love about The Band and their music and what’s not to love about the Jersey Shore?! Here are the details:
One Last Waltz with Glen Burtnik, Salvatore Boyd, Bob Burger & Arne Wendt, performing as The Band @ Pollak Theatre
400 Cedar Ave., West Long Branch, NJ (United States)
See you there!
Greetings Golden Ones! Thank you for stopping in! At a recent gig at 54 Below in NYC we had the great pleasure of welcoming my amazing friends Gene Cornish and Catherine Russell to join in. This, dear pals, is always fun and illuminating! Gene rocks like no other Hall of Famer and Catherine is a singer extraordinaire! Catherine Russell joined me and the boys the other night at 54 Below. She is one very special gal and an amazing singer.
It’s always a pleasure playing with that Rascal Gene Cornish. That boy can Rock-a-Billy like you read about!
Dear visitors! Thank you for dropping in! I thought I’d share with you some photos from the early days of my recording career. Here are some shots with my band from ’71. They were hot!
Hi! Here are a couple of pictures from the ’70’s in the world of tipi living – Kate and Charlie style. The little angel in these shots is my darling daughter Liz Witham, now a gorgeous, genius grown up gal who weaves amazing stories via film: (http://docutunes.ning.com/ and http://www.film-truth.com/)

Check out the picture my pal Bill Faure found of the grand audience at the No Nukes Concert in Chilmark in ’78! Carmel G. has on that “Sister Kate” tee shirt!
