Popsicles In the Snow

The shortest and most wintry of Ron’s compositions on Two Hearts actually started out as a holiday carol, then morphed into an instrumental. Who knows where it may go next? Quite a few instrumental pieces are still waiting to be heard outside of practice sessions–new combinations of sounds and colors, new opportunities for spirited musical…negotiations!

Atlanta is snowed in, a growing family of instruments is getting humidified, and we’re doing some planning for 2011. We’ve been happy to see Two Hearts reviewed in the venerable publication Sing Out!, as well as a fine photo (by Hawk Reynolds) in the latest Gwinnett Magazine (honoring Chocolate Perks in the “best of” issue).

In the next month or so, we’ll be playing in some cozy spaces. On 1/22, you can hear us in the tranquil environment of Zen Tea in Chamblee, a beautiful community gathering place that offers an incredible variety of teas and tea-related sweets. Then on 2/10, it’s back to the much-loved Catacombs Coffee House at Mt. Carmel UMC in Norcross, one of the oldest churches in Gwinnett County. And, if you happen to be well-known to us and live northwest/west of Atlanta and would like to host a house concert (perhaps in late spring), we’d love to talk with you! One of the greatest resources for how house concerts work is here…contact us privately if you’re interested. House concerts are magical. Warmth and music to you.
