Father's Day 21 June at Blue Ridge Swim Club

I wanted to tell you about this show, but Sarah Lawson does a better job in the current issue of Whurk magazine.  Jordan Perry and Ned Oldham on acoustic guitars playing traditional and unrecorded original songs at the Blue Ridge Swim Club.  The show is free for members, which is what Jordan and I are; you can come as our guests, but the management might ask you for $15, the guest fee.  It's a really nice place to cool down on a hot summer Sunday; shade, native plants, spring-fed pool 100+ yards long and ten yards wide.  If the weather is iffy, good to check with the club to make sure the show is on.

Electric Guitar Duo Performance: Ned Oldham and Jordan Perry, Saturday 2 May 2015 -- Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar

Please come!  Ned Oldham and Jordan Perry, first of three (followed by International Friendly, then Water Liars) at the Tea Bazaar in Charlottesville.  New, unrecorded songs plus a couple Anomoanon songs in new arrangements.  You never get to see electric guitar duos anymore, you really want to come and see how this will sound, and you'll show up for the duo's 9pm set and be so, so happy that you did.

Two hundred fifty three and nine one-hundredths of these will be donated to Cure Alzheimer's Fund in the name of the New Year Carol.  Thanks to everyone who donated through the song!
Happy New Year!

New Year Carol has earned over $250 that will be donated to Cure Alzheimer's Fund... Help double it by New Year's Day!

For better or worse, you're pretty much done listening to Christmas Carols until shortly after Thanksgiving 2015.  But there are still good reasons to listen to the New Year Carol, namely that there is still a week until we ring in the new year, and if you purchase the New Year Carol, every bit of the profit will be donated to the Cure Alzheimer's Fund.  Of course, you could always just donate to the CAF directly, but we hope that it's more pleasant and delightful to obtain our New Year Carol as a reward for your generosity.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased the song and helped us raise over $250 so far.  Please continue to spread the word so we can continue to increase the amount we will donate when this fundraiser concludes on New Year's Day 2015!
