Spring is desperately attempting to get sprung and I for one hope you will join us on Sat night and help it along! I know I have mentioned this show in past email/blog blasts, but the weekend is nigh and I am really excited about it.
This Saturday night I am bringing together under one roof and on one stage my favorite Irish and Celtic musicians to ever walk the planet. From Virginia the incredible talents of Coyote Run and in addition to their fiddle and their bagpipe they use didgeridoo and djembe and their mastery of their instruments and the stories behind their songs just shine right through. Their ultra tight vocal harmonies just bowl me over and I know you'll love them. I met them out at Starwood last summer and I am thrilled they're coming here, I really hope you will come out to see it.

Some great press quotes:
"Imagine Jethro Tull on Broadway and you start to get the picture." --
Sam McDonald, Music Editor, Daily Press, Norfolk, VA
"If the Red Hot Chili Peppers wore kilts...they might sound like this
band." -- Mike Farragher, The Irish Voice, Boston, MA
Also joining us for a set this night is Terry Griffith , locally celebrated Irish Balladeer and an organizer for the St Patrick's Day Parade.
Accompanying me are my trusty companions Miguel Sague III on conga and Carlos Peña on guitar of Guaracha Latin Dance Band.

I really hope to see you there! If for some reason you are in Kent on Mrach 4, this Friday I will also be singing at my friend Halim El-Dabh's birthday party at Standing Rock Art Center. He is a wonderful composer who has given so much to world in terms of music and ethnomusicology.
One last note, this month I lost my father Jay Leslie Kivowitz. He was a wonderful photographer who stoked my love of music with his adoration of Peter Paul and Mary as I was growing up. He is missed.
Love light and music,
