WHAT'S UP FOR INA MAY

Happy Spring!

Ok, so it's pretty cold and blustery hereabouts but I have seen the crocuses and the jonquils and a few hardy fruit trees blossoming, and I do believe the season is here.

Just finished teaching a lyric-writing course at Riverdale Country School which I really enjoyed.  It was part of a creative writing course in the high school there taught by the multi-talented Sarah Banks. (Sarah is also a fantastic violinist.)  We listened to some classic songs and some of the kids' current favorites, and we did a lot of writing.  It was fun getting to know what some highly intelligent 16-year-olds are listening to these days.  (There were plenty of surprises and some very excellent new writing too.)

WOOL&GRANT had a fine foray into New England on our tour last month. Thanks so much for cheering us on.

We were also very happy to be included in the one-day NERFA showcase in New Jersey at the beginning of this month.  A smile fest all around. 

Coming up there are some great shows and workshops I hope you'll join in on.  Check out the calendar page.  I just updated it so you can see more detail there.  This Friday (4/18) WOOL&GRANT is at the Two Moon Art House & Cafe in Brooklyn with Carolann Solebello and Elisa Peimer. In May I'm leading some writing workshops, and WOOL&GRANT will be featured at the 11th Annual Mamapalooza Outdoor Extravaganza at Pier 1 (70th Street) on May 18th. More on the calendar page.

Last and not least - if you'd like to get my email newsletters, please sign up http://eepurl.com/NRxw1.  If you used to be on the list and didn't mean to jump off, do the same http://eepurl.com/NRxw1.  I have a new mail service and they want people to confirm their interest.  If you get a message that says you're already signed up, that's all to the good.  They just want proof I'm not spamming.  And I would love to keep you in the loop.

Thanks,

Ina May

THANKS!/UPCOMING SHOWS

Musicians and Family at Rob Morsberger TributeThank you thank you thank you for all your warm support in the very cold month of February. Thanks for cheering WOOL&GRANT on at John Platt's On Your Radar show on the 11th on the big stage at the Rockwood Music Hall.  What a night!

Thank you too for sharing the joy of Rob Morsberger's music at the Songwriters' Beat tribute to my late friend on the 20th.  I sang his Relativity Blues Waltz with Janie Barnett accompanying me beautifully on piano, and many other musical friends brought Rob's songs alive in style. We felt that he WAS alive in the room with all the love and connection and spirit of the music.

WELCOME!

Welcome to my new site! It’s been a long time coming,and though it’s not 100% complete, there’s a lot here already that I’m eager for you to see. Take a look around. The collage with me and the elephants and the moon was created by Tim Robinson. Tim’s not only a brilliant songwriter but also a well-known visual artist, and I love this piece he made for me. The photo in the collage was taken by the talented Rachel Miranda.

There are some exciting performances coming up, and the first one is Tuesday, February 11th. My new duo, WOOL&GRANT, is playing a set at John Platt's On Your Radar at the Rockwood Music Hall. Also playing: the group Darlingside and singer/songwriter, Meg Hutchinson. Lots more info on the calendar page.
