As performers, we still need to go on stage even when our hearts are broken. Today saw the terrible violence committed towards eleven innocent souls in Pittsburgh- for the simple reason that they were proud Jews. I am a proud Jew, and I am so thankful I could share the stage last night with my beautiful, talented Jewish soul-sister, Joanie Leeds. We participated in a gathering of family musicians for a Hootenanny- it was a celebration of family love and partnership in all its greatest strength and diversity.
My soul needed it.
