Greetings Good People
Hello from the Canadian Rockies! We hope your new year has begun with promise!
We began 2014 as part of a glamorous folk radio show and party on the Midnight Special on WFMT in Chicago.
It was the 60th anniversary of that iconic show and we send a hearty thanks to Rich Warren and Midnight Special family for their extraordinary hospitality.
After that wondrous event, Dr. Kim was spotted researching Black Catholic liturgical history in library archives in Florida while Reggie enjoyed appearing in concert with our great friend John Flynn. Reggie then taught performance at the 1st annual Cape Cod Songwriters Retreat in Provincetown, MA...a fine inspiring weekend. Reggie also showed up in a great article in the pages of USA Today that you can check out on our website. www.kimandreggie.com.
New Mountains To Climb!
We were thrilled to be the January act at the Calgary Folk Club in this their 42nd season. We missed being booked there years ago because of Reggie's illness and they finally got to bring us in. We took such delight in playing for that packed house of amazing listeners and singers. And, Polar Vortex notwithstanding, the weather was very much like it is at home in Upstate New York. But the Canadian Rockies were spectacular and we are big fans of the region. We can't wait to return to that spacious beauty.
Black History Time
We are now entering the season of freedom and African-American history celebrations abound. We look forward to performances for the Philadelphia Folk Song Society (see below) and at schools, faith communities and folk venues from New York to Washington DC. Then, we fly back to the Midwest for return visits to the Durham Museum in Omaha, the Krannert Center in Champaign- Urbana and then east once again for the fabulous Dance Flurry 2014 in scenic Saratoga Springs, NY.
Be sure to contact Joann Murdock at Artists of Note to schedule a Kim and Reggie performance near you. www.artistsofnote.com
And thanks to webmaster and bass player Joe Hammer. Bye for now!
Kim and Reggie
