12/21/15: HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! I just want to thank you for another stellar year on the road. From Seward, Alaska to St. Petersburg, Florida, it was a year of wonderful travel, evolving stories, a whole range of venues, and my first songwriting workshop facilitation. Also got a little 7-8-9th grade choral teaching gig this year at a local private school, which always makes me look at songs in a fun, fresh way. It is an honor to be called to share what I've learned, and a trip to try to figure out how to convey to someone else how I have learned to do what I do. It seems so natural at this point, but it wasn't always thus ... was it? Teaching is such a great opportunity to learn it again, or just find out how to get out of our own way so that the words and music can come through.
In 2016, I will be doing more of the same -- more writing, more traveling, more teaching -- and most assuredly, some recording! It is way past time for another TG album so I will find a way to make that happen.
Along every step of the way, I will remember to be grateful for this kooky journey I'm on. I was a little girl when I got the idea I'd like to live my life on stages, and I feel fortunate every time I step up to the mic that I get to live my dream. Thank you for being part of the magic, and for singing along like you do.

8/3/15: Judy Collins and Willie Nelson have recorded Dave Carter's "When I Go" for Collins' upcoming duets album, STRANGERS AGAIN, scheduled for a September 18 release on Wildflower Records. Collins also performed the song at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival to the delight of longtime fans and D&T devotees, who gave her a standing ovation. See a wonderful video of that performance here, thanks to Kathy Sands-Boehmer.
