    3. We are looking forward to returning to some of our favorite Festivals (High Sierra, Oregon Country Fair, and the Islands) but are disappointed not to be able to make it to some of our favorites — I will miss you Kerrville, Falcon Ridge and SolarFest — maybe we can come back next year!

    Hey everybody,

    It's that time of the month again.

    May Day. Oh, I wish I could wax on and on about this day, but the truth is — I am headed out today for a couple of weeks in the Northeast. It is beautiful out — so this may very well be the shortest whirled retort in history.

    Dr D has been in Brandywine, MD planting a garden and getting dirt under his nails — and now spring is in full spring. The dogwoods and cherry trees splash color across the marble city like the Jackson Pollick's that hang in the National Gallery. It makes me praise creation itself. Somehow, I realize as I stand in awe of the smells that old lady perfumes try to emulate — that perhaps the reason creationists must regail evolution — is that — if we are created in God's image — and evolution is true — than God must be evolving too. And perhaps, as God evolves he has relaxed some of those old testament ideas. Just a thought. Now, I recommend you do as I am about to do — turn off your computer and go out into it. It is beautiful out there.

    We are both very excited about this mini-tour of the Northeast and next month we venture into the heartland and then the west coast!

    See you out there!

    (requires Windows Media Player)

    I rediscovered this poem by WH Auden shortly after 9-11 — as it was circulated widely on the internet. D. R. and I recoded it for The American Storyteller Album:

    I am excited about this one — because I actually shot about 80% of it.

    If you can't play Windows media player files, check back later in the month for other versions.


    We are looking for a date in Oh say, St Louis or Kansas City or somewhere midwestish on June 22 and or June 23 as well as July 26 or 27.

    Ya see — due to credit card problems — we are going to drive for our west coast tour and would really like a couple of dates between DC and San Francisco and on the way back — between Bellingham, WA and Washington, DC

    That is a pretty big area — Madison??? You out there?


    On this tour we are now selling a DVD of several of the new videos that we play in the show including "Something's in the Air" "9th Ward New Orleans #2" "The Dutchman/Cracker Jack Cure" "I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine. Florida" and "The newest one: "Green Fields of France/September 1, 1939"


    I am almost done with the new David Rovics DVD including 5 music videos I made for him in the past few months.


    The New Orleans Saints drafted Reggie Bush — first time a Bush has been refered to as a Saint I assure you.
