Sunday, October 25 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

The Mulberry Tree edition for Sunday, October 25 begins with a set of music with a Halloween theme.  Then, for the remainder of the hour, we'll enjoy songs together that I dedicate to my fellow musicians and our beloved audience members during a time when we're separated much more than usual, both physically and emotionally.  I found many songs about singing, so I invite you so sing along with me as I feature tracks from the following musicians and songwriters, which includes The Honey Dewdrops, who…

Sunday, October 11 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

Tune in on Sunday, October 11 to enjoy an hour of songs about being "alright."  I enjoyed putting the program together for you in an effort to offer some encouragement in unsettling times.  Each songwriter had a different reason for using the word "alright" in their composition.  The word was used in many different ways from song to song, so ride along with me on the musical journey and you'll see what I mean.  It's always so good to have you around the tree with me.  Here's who will be sitting there…

Sunday, September 27 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello, 

Sometimes it’s hard to sum up my upcoming playlist….this is one of those times.  I’m feeling very plugged in to all of you these days and therefore, I’m allowing my instincts to guide me in creating the tracks for the lineup this Sunday, September 27.  This week’s sneak peek playlist video is from one of my favorite songwriters, Darden Smith.  His natural writing process is to let a song be born through every stage and in every sense of the word. The song I chose is “Angel Flight," a co-write…

Sunday, September 20 on The Mulberry Tree 

Hello,

I look forward to our time around the tree this Sunday, September 20.  I always imagine us with our chairs (properly distanced, of course) in the grass, sitting in a circle around the perimeter of the tree, watching the musical notes rise from the top of the tree and drift off into the beyond and into ears...not just human ears, either.  My cat use to love music.  I have many home recordings that include Spot where I was laying down a new song, a practice track so to speak, and he would wait until…
