October 2011 Gigs and News

Posted on October 1, 2011
Hi folks:

I grew up saying "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit" as the first thing in the morning of a new month, to bring luck. This morning, out before the sun with the dog, the rabbits themselves (probably fresh from eating my garden) showed up to welcome October.

Here's what I have for you for you this month:

I. News
II. October Shows
III. Video Audio of the Month
IV. Beth in Cyberspace
V. Other Upcoming Shows

I. News

The big news is that . . . I'm back! After an intentionally slower September of performances, as my day job ramped up, I'm back to my normal schedule in October, with four solid shows lined up. I've also been writing -- news songs to present to you this fall!

III. Video Audio of the Month

This month instead of video what I have for you is a sneak preview of a new recording -- I wrote a new song that will appear on a winter holiday CD coming out this November. You can read the lyrics and hear the recorded version here:
