Cyndy and I just enjoyed seeing James Taylor and his 12-person All Star band at Tanglewood (in the western Massachusetts’ Berkshire mountains)-a great road trip and needed therapy for the Soul. Music heals…I’m happy to offer up 2 very sweet, outdoor Maine gigs in the next weeks. Hope to see some of you out and about! Full details at lynndeeves.com/see

Friday, July 15 (6-9pm)-I’ll be joined by my college pal, singer Val Bennett at the Graze series at Pineland Farms (New Gloucester, Me). Val and I haven’t played together in years, so it will be totes Fun…

Thursday July 21 (6-8pm)-“Alive on the Common”- a trio concert in the gazebo with guitarist Robby Coffin and percussionist Alfred Lund. This is rescheduled from a rainout date last summer. Fingers crossed…bring a chair/blanket/dinner and enjoy the tunes/good vibes…

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
