September Musical Travelogue: Shows, Banjos and Baby Wraps

Hello, (End of) September!

I have a little boy now and he has some tiny blue pants with a green star on the butt. We love him soooo much. Craig and I can’t wait to explore the world with him. We’ll be taking him on our first family tour adventure to New Mexico in early November. I can’t wait for him to see the red rocks.

Since baby Cy arrived I’ve become obsessed with different kinds of baby carriers and wraps. I love the blue ring sling my friend Adrianna loaned me. I can’t wait until Cyrus gets big enough for me to put him on my back. Then I’ll be able to play banjo with my front at the same time.

You know, having a little baby around is helping me prioritize my time better and worry less about what other people think. Cyrus is helping me learn that it’s really ok to not be perfect. This is something I’ve been trying to learn for a long time. It’s a tough lesson but a good one. After all, he doesn’t care if I’m perfect. He just needs to be loved, cuddled and fed. And the best thing ever? He’s started to smile…

The *reprise* Songwriters in the Round show with Tara Shupe and Bronwen Beecher is tomorrow! Those two women are strong and powerful and they push me to be a better musician and songwriter. Our theme for this show is “unruly peace found on a road, wild with fallen branches and stones.” I love it.

Scroll to the bottom of this message to see where else I’m playing music soon. More musical projects and projects of all kinds to come…

Keep walking down that road, searching for your unruly peace. That’s what I’m doing. Hope to see you soon.
