New CD now available digitally!

Standard

Hello Friends,

I hope that you are all weathering this wave of the world’s difficulties by finding ways of Connection and Balance. My latest release is offered up in the Spirit of being a “healing balm.” This heartfelt collection, entitled “Songs from a Peaceful Heart” is now digitally available as single-song downloads or the full-length CD, as well as listening to song samples of each selection.

https://lynndeeves.hearnow.com

This is a soulful collaboration with contributions of many lay and monastic mindfulness practitioners from within the Plum Village tradition. The project was recorded prior to and just as the reality of the Covid-19 situation emerged. May the music be of great benefit during these unsettled times. 2/3 of all proceeds will benefit the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation and Morning Sun Mindfulness Community of NH.

in peace,

Lynn

Greetings/Songs from a Peaceful Heart

Standard

Hello My Friends,I hope that you are doing all that you can to keep yourselves and others safe and well at this unprecedented time in our world. Although we are not able to be together in a physical sense, thankfully-there are many ways to stay connected. One of the ways I have chosen has always been through music. I’m happy and grateful to let you know that a new CD is now available in hard copy (CD form) and coming soon-digital downloads on Amazon Music, Apple Music/I-tunes, Spotify and Pandora). The CD is a heartfelt, soulful compilation of mindfulness practice songs in collaboration with many members of Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village tradition, along with local (Maine/NH) musicians. Who knew when this project began, what the world would look like today? My aspiration is that the music will offer a healing oasis from the troubles we are facing, as well as inspiration as we move forward. 1/3 of the proceeds will support Morning Sun Mindfulness Community in NH and 1/3 of the proceeds will support the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation.

At home in Richmond, we just chopped down our Christmas tree from the farm down the road and put up outside lights this afternoon…there are so many things to feel Grateful for…including, family and friends…health…a brand-new Taylor guitar (which has been on my “bucket list” for several years)…as well as being invited to collaborate with a longtime friend for a Solstice celebration. Join Jen Deraspe and I at “Nurture through Nature” for this special evening…see flyer below and www.ntnretreats.com/calendar

“Cabin Fever” Gigs: 2019

Standard

Hello Friends and Music Fans,

After laying low for a bit (we kind of do that in Maine at this time of year), I’m excited to announce 2 fun, upcoming March shows in Maine and NH!

On Tuesday, 3.5.19 (7-9pm show with a 6pm “meet and greet”), I’ll be happily collaborating with Ronda Dale and Lark Cypress Holmes in the “Songwriters on Stage” monthly series at Frontier Theater in Brunswick presented b the Maine Songwrters Association. We 3 will surely serve up some soulful harmonies and instrumental support on each others songs throughout the in-the-round evening.

On Saturday, 3.16.19, is my annual house concert at the Highlands Inn (Bethlehem, NH) 8pm. It’s always an intimate and fun night next to the fire after a day of enjoying the winter beauty of Franconia or Crawford Notch.

Full details for these and all upcoming summer shows are at www.lynndeeves.com/see
