Lindsay and the Lights Go Out will be playing at Lincoln Square's annual Square Roots Festival on Saturday, July 9th at 4:45pm. I love when I get to be part of this big joyous festival thrown by and for the awesome community that is the Old Town School of Folk Music. You won't want to miss it!
Speaking of the Old Town School, the Youth Music Showcase a few weeks ago was an overwhelmingly beautiful experience. The show closed with a few hundred voices joining together on my piece "We Will Sing." It was a pretty indescribable moment... It was both impossible to imagine and exactly as I'd dreamed. The show was the morning after the shooting at Pulse in Orlando, and so the power of all of those voices raised together and crying out "Sing for a world that's full of love" felt especially important. Ben Chandler took a nice video, which you can see here:
The next Cover to Cover is coming up on July 10, and will be the last one before I take the month of August off. Participants are Emily Hurd, John Mead, and Emily White. Then later in July I'm heading out to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where I'll be playing a show at The Makespace and co-teaching a songwriting camp with my former bandmate and dear friend Heather Perry. GOOD STUFF.
I still love summer. Hope you are enjoying yours.
