#4 With A Bullet!

I'm extremely excited to announce that "The House on Christmas Street" is the #4 song (up from #5 last week) on the Top Ten on Sounds of Christmas Radio. The Weekly Top Ten is voted on by over one hundred thousand listeners each week, so I'm very proud!

Happy Last Minute Christmas Shopping!

I went to see BOLT the other day (and I didn't even have any kids with me!) because I am a big John Travolta fan, and I LOVED it!
Now, you should know that I am VERY critical of so-called family movies, especially when they include any kind of profanity, even mild, or "grown-up" humor. Give me an old-fashioned Disney movie like the ones from my youth any day. I thought the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch was an abomination!
And I'm really sick of how today's movie makers feel that the only way to get a laugh is to get grosser and more vulgar with every movie.
So I am happy to say that BOLT is an entirely charming and funny movie, and gets 4 **** and an A+ from me. It was totally delightful from start to finish, without being overly sappy or stupid. Parents will enjoy it just as much as the kids.
Let me know if you disagree...but I don't think you will. I would be very surprised to hear that any parent would dislike this movie....even if it didn't feature John Travolta!! :)
Oh yeah...Miley Cyrus makes a voice, too.

HOCS on Internet Radio

Some say that Internet Radio Stations are the wave of the future, and someday we'll get all of our music through the computer. That's okay with me! There are several Internet radio stations currently playing The House on Christmas Street, and you can listen to them ANYWHERE all over the world!! So my fans in Australia and Croatia and the UK and Italy as well as anywhere in the US can hear my music on their computers!
Here's a list of the Internet radio stations that I know are playing my song: (Music of a Lifetime)

If you have an internet radio station that plays Christmas music, or know of one that isn't listed here, please contact me so I can send you the song!

BOO!!!!! Halloween is coming!

Halloween is coming soon! You should see the beautiful foliage up here in New Hampshire. It's just breathtaking! I have done my indoor decorating, but am terribly lax in getting the outdoor display set up. That's a project for later this week.

If you are looking for some fun and spooky Halloween music, my good friend Steve Blunt ( has put together an "iMix" on the iTunes site, featuring Halloween-style tunes from many children's artists, including yours truly. You can download the whole thing, or just select the songs you like the best.
Click here to find it!

I really like Steve's "Pumpkins, Beware!". He performed it on the Judy's Tune Room Radio Program this week, and you can hear it on the Archived Programs page on the WKXL website ( Steve was a fun guest! You can upload the whole program to your iPod and listen wherever and whenever you like!

Now, where can you catch me for some Halloween musical fun? Well, I'm going to be performing at Halloweentown in Boston ( on October 25 & 26th, along with super famous children's music star Dan Zanes. This annual event benefits the Kids Fund at Boston Medical Center. I hope you can join us for family fun at this big event!

Then, you can find me at the Manchester City Library in New Hampshire for their annual Halloween parade and party. That's Monday, October 27th at 6:30pm. For my Boston area fans, plan to join me for the Halloween party at the Orient Heights Branch Library on Halloween afternoon at 3:30!
I hope to see you at one of these fun-filled events. And be sure to wear your costume!

Kids 4 Kids Carnival

I was just skimming over my recent posts and I realized that I didn't give you the "scoop" on this event in NYC.
First of all, there are two reasons I love performing at this event so much. The first is that the cause is near and dear to my heart: Pediatric AIDS research. Ever since my visits to the Nyumbani orphanage in Kenya a few years ago I have been trying to put together a plan to go back. Once you have met the African children who are afflicted with AIDS through no fault of their own, and you are touched by their effervescent spirits and love of life, you can never leave them behind. They are always in my heart, and I will do anything I can do to help them live long and happy lives. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is at the forefront of research, and I was honored to actually meet its CEO at this year's event. I pledged my help at any future events in which my services could be useful.
Now, if you've been reading this blog then you know that I am somewhat of a "fan" type of person. I do enjoy meeting and talking with people whose work in the media has meant something to me, and its always a bonus when they are "real" people. I once read a quote from Bruce Willis on why he doesn't sign autographs, and he said that he'd rather spend the time having a genuine encounter with a person than just signing his name on a piece of paper. I thought that made a lot of sense, and so every time I've met someone famous since then I've tried to have even just a short exchange of reality with them. For example, in the picture of me with David Cassidy, he is holding a photo that my mother took of me when I was 12 years old, sitting on the couch with a 16 Magazine with a poster of him on the back cover. We are talking about my life then, and what he meant to me. His reaction was sincerely sweet, and I hold that as a special memory that means so much more to me that just having his name on a piece of paper. And he called me "sweetie!"
So, this brings me to the second reason I love the Kids 4 Kids Carnival. It's just a lot of fun to meet all the celebrities who donate their time to this event and this cause. This year we got to see Aida Turturro, who played Tony's sister Janice on the Sopranos, and Gilbert Gottfried (the voice of Iago in Aladdin and many other cartoons and a star of one of my all-time favorite comedies, "Problem Child"). My kids were just insane to meet Nigel Barker, the photographer from America's Next Top Model (who, I must say, impressed me by telling another fan that he does not pose for photos while holding his child) but my favorite celebrity that we met was the cab driver from Cash Cab, Ben Bailey. He was super nice and friendly, very down-to-earth and took a lot of time talking with us (Emma is a big fan of the show.) Now that's what I'm talking about!
Now, I don't consider myself a big celebrity, but I do (and I say this most humbly) meet a lot of kids who are very excited to meet me. I always try to make each one feel special and important, because they are. I think any person who is in the public eye and has a following owes courtesy and friendliness to those who support their career. I've been fortunate that through my career in music and my career in radio, I've met a lot of famous people, and I've only encountered one or two who I would say were kind of jerky. That's not bad odds.
Thanks for reading. Hope to meet you soon!

To All the Kids Who Have Helped Me Through the Years

Today I am thinking about the kids who have helped me make music and have fun through the years. Many of them are all grown up now, and some have even graduation from college! From the original KidPop Kids on my first recording....Jessie D, Christina K, Jocelyn D, Molly G and all the my first Crew of dancers...Lindsay, Abby, Jessie, Josselyn, Jared and all the rest....I'll always remember all of you and what fun we had together!
I hope you are all doing well and have happy memories of the part of your youth that we spent together.
And be sure to play my music when you've got little bambinos of your own!! I'll still be kickin' till I'm 97 (that's the plan, anyhow!)
Love, Judy

Mickey Dolenz

Well, 2008 must be my year to meet the idols of my youth! Yesterday Emma came home from school and we trekked down to the Eastern States Expo (A.K.A. "The Big E") to see Mickey Dolenz. After his concert in the afternoon he vowed to sign every autograph and meet every fan until there was no one left, and that's just what he did! We were delighted to meet him and get our photo taken with him, and he was a real gentleman. My heart didn't pound quite as much as when I met David Cassidy, but it was great nonetheless.
Now, when, oh when, will I get my chance with John Travolta??????
Next weekend is the Kids 4 Kids Carnival and I hear through the grapevine that some of my favorite stars are going to be there! I'll give you the full report!

It Was A Good Summer

Well, I guess there's no denying it. Summer is unofficially over. There was a little bit of a nip in the New Hampshire air today, and I saw quite a few reddish-orangeish (as my girls would say) leaves out there. "sigh"
But it was a GOOD summer. First of all, I got to spend a lot of time with Louisa doing shows and having fun. She just started high school, so it's really more important to me than ever before to stay close to her. She's a good kid, and funny. I'm lucky. She introduced me to a lot of new music, and to what has become my favorite song of the summer: A song called "Lake Ponchartrain" by the band LUDO. I LOVE IT and have played it over and over again! You can hear it here on their MySpace: WARNING: I always assume that young children are not reading my blog, and I write for the parents. You should know that this song has the H-E-double toothpicks word in it and one of their MYSPACE friends has a sort of naughty picture. But your kids can't get on MySpace unless you let them anyway. Just don't say I didn't warn ya!
Moving on.... didn't spend as much time with Emma because she was away doing an internship most of the summer, but what time we did have was GOOD. We laughed a lot. We had our annual Bar Harbor weekend and enjoyed lobster and a fun play at the Acadia Repertory Theatre. We made the most of the rain and went to see "Mama Mia" together, which I wouldn't have seen without her and which I thoroughly enjoyed. But I spent a lot of the summer missing her.
Then there were all the great places I got to play and all the great kids and families I met. I especially enjoyed my shows at the Milford Drive-In. That was a total blast! If you've never taken your kids to a Drive-In, plan to do it next summer. The Drive-Ins that are left are a dying breed and a relic from a very cool time. We're lucky to have some left.
Oh, and I can't forget...this was the summer I got to meet DAVID CASSIDY!! I only went to see one other concert this summer, though, and that was TALLY HALL in NYC. They're terrific, too. I love their music!
I went fishing for the first time in my life this summer when my father-in-law took the girls and me out on his little motor boat in Freeport, Maine. We didn't catch any fish, but what a lovely day. It was good for all of our hearts to have that time together. And besides, I'll never forget Louisa's reaction to the worms!
I read a really good book that took me all summer to read, called "A Voyage Long and Strange" by Tony Horwitz, which is a sort of travelogue/history book about the actual MANY discoveries of America. It was fascinating, but because it was non-fiction I didn't have that drive to keep picking it up to see what would happen, so it took me all summer to read it.
At the end of summer we had our annual trip to Santa's Village, which is more precious every year because my daughters are both teenagers now but they (and their friends) still love going there. Maybe they do it now mostly to humor me, but I don't care! It's always a good time. Now, if I could just get them to go to Storyland.....
We only went to Hampton Beach once, and we only went to Bear Brook State Park once, so that sort of bums me out. But it was such a rainy summer and I worked a lot, so there weren't that many beach opportunities.
Speaking of the beach, though, I did get to play at the Hampton Beach Children's Festival and the best thing about that was I got to reconnect with my old pal Dan Grady, marionettist extraordinaire. In addition to being a true craftsman and artist, Dan is wondefully imaginative and talented, and a REALLY nice guy. If you'd like to find out more about him, check out
Well, if you've read this far, I hope I didn't bore you! I'm just feeling a little nostalgic tonight. Must be that nip in the air.....

The Hillsborough County Fair

Here's a big shout out to all the great kids and families who came to my shows at the Hillsborough County Fair this weekend! It was lots of fun!
Boo hoo, though...I didn't get a chance to get a doughboy! Maybe you call them fried dough?
I love 'em!!!
On another note, I'm working on a song for my new CD and it actually involves some research! I wrote to the guys who operate the Roadside America website and they actually wrote back within 24 hours. I was very impressed! If you are interested in the unusual, bizarre and downright weird things there are to see out there, please check out their website before you take your next trip. You can find them at

Let me know what cool things you see out there on the road!

KIDS 4 KIDS Carnival NYC

I'm very excited to announce that I've been invited to perform again at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "Kids 4 Kids" Carnival in New York City! This will be my FOURTH appearance at the carnival and it's always exciting and a lot of fun. The event is a fundraiser for an important cause, plus it's a chance to meet a lot of nice people and interact with some very cool people. In past years I've had the pleasure of meeting such celebrities as Peter Boyle, James Gandolfini, Julianne Moore, Whoopi Goldberg and many others. I'm honored to once again be invited to work among these wonderful and giving VIPS!

Make the Most of What's Left

Where has the summer gone? Seems like just yesterday I was looking out the window into my snow-filled back yard, longing for the days when I could relax on my swing and read a it's almost time for the cold weather again.
Here in New England summers go by really fast, so you've got to make the most of them while they're here. I'm always on the go in the summer, with lots and lots of shows all over the place, but I still try to make time to stop and enjoy the season. Even if, like yesterday, I just take 10 minutes before I go into the house to walk around the yard and enjoy what's going on in my gardens.
We've had a very rainy summer, so there haven't been a lot of chances to sit on the swing when I've been home, but I have managed to get out there a few times. That's always a nice time for me, especially when Louisa joins me out there.
Anyhow, I've still got a lot of concerts to look forward to during the coming weeks. I'm returning to the Henniker Chili Fest this year, and this year I'll be sure to wait until AFTER the show to sample the goods! That's going to be on Sunday, August 24th. Check out all the stuff that's happening at the festival by visiting here:
I want to say a special thanks to all those who came out to the Goffstown Main Street concert last week. I was sooooooo disappointed by the rain, but we were fortunate to be able to hold the concert in St. Matthew's church (thank you, Fr. Bill!) and though the crowd was smaller than usual, we did have a good time. I was hoping to gather a lot of stuff for the Goffstown Food Pantry, but because I think a lot of folks assumed the concert was cancelled, we only got a few donations. THANK YOU to those who did bring things to donate, and to every one else in the area, please remember that the Pantry is in need of non-perishables, especially personal items such as toothpaste and deodorant. When you go shopping, especially when there's a sale, please try to pick up one or two extra items for the food pantry in your town. Spending an extra couple bucks to help out those less fortunate will hardly make a blip on your grocery bill but could really be a boost to someone who is down on their luck.

Well, now I'm kinda rambling so I'll just sign off with this reminder that the Hillsborough County Fair in New Boston is coming up the weekend after Labor Day, and I hope to see you there!
Enjoy what's left of summer!!!

Where is the summer going?

Hi...Goodness, I can't believe it has been over a month since I have written on my blog. It has been a very very busy summer with concerts, Oldies 103.3, and now my newest project, Judy's Tune Room Radio Show. Please be sure to visit the radio show page and check it out!
You don't have to live in NH to listen to the program. Just go to and click on the Archive page, and you can hear all the programs in the series.
I want to say a special thank you to all of my fans who sent me emails and letters wishing me a happy birthday. It was very nice, even if Louisa did accidentally drop my cake on the floor!! That's Okay, I'd already had one piece and probably didn't need to eat anymore.
By the way, yesterday I was a guest on a program called Hollywood New England. The show airs on cable access stations all over New England, so if you'd like to see it, call your local cable access station and ask them to air it!
See you sure to sign the guest book!

New Guest Book...please sign in

I am so happy to finally have a new guestbook on my website. I know from my website statistics that a lot of people visit here but I have no way of knowing who they are. So please take a minute and write me a note on my guestbook to let me know you were here!! And if you have been to one of my shows, please let me know what you thought about it. I'd love to hear from you!

David Cassidy

Yes....I got very close to David Cassidy on Saturday night! I spent a grand total of about 12 seconds with him, but it was a very meaningful 12 seconds!! He put his arm around me and I showed him a picture of myself when I was 11 years old, holding a magazine with his picture on it and a Partridge Family Comic Book, and he said "Thank you for showing me this, Sweetie." SWEETIE!! Keith Partridge called me SWEETIE!
Here's the video of me nearly fainting as he walked by me on his way into the venue, I am in the bottom left corner near the end of the video, trying to get a grip.
If you ever needed proof that I am the world's oldest teenybopper, this is it.
Pictures coming soon.......

So Excited I Probably Won't Sleep Tonight

I know that most of the folks who read this blog are the parents of my young fans, and not the kids themselves (most of my fans can't read yet!), so this message is going out to the ladies who are right around my age. You will be able to relate to my excitement about this:
Tomorrow night I'm going to get to meet DAVID CASSIDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, Keith Partridge himself! He was my very first teen idol love, when I saw him in 16 Magazine at the tender age of 11, and by the time I turned 12 I was glued to the TV set every Friday night for The Partridge Family. I loved his smile, his hair, his voice. I had his posters up all over my bedroom walls and I drove my family crazy because I talked of nothing else. Now, all of these many years later, I am going to get to meet him tomorrow night when he comes to Boston for our Oldies 103.3 summer concert series. I will hardly sleep tonight. The only thing that could make this better would be if John Travolta was standing right behind him!!!
Look for a photo on the picture page soon!

More From New Mexico

Hey...I was very excited to get a google alert today about my concert in New Mexico. You can read the article and look at the photos (I love it...the photographer caught me right in the middle of the Monkey Girl Tarzan Yell!!!) by clicking here:

We had a blast there....just a block away from Historic Route 66....I said "hi" to the guys and gals from CARS for you while I was there!

New Mexico....I miss you already!!

THANK YOU to all my wonderful friends and fans in New Mexico, where I just spent five days filled with fun, sun and music. I visit every year in June because the land is beautiful, the people are the friendliest in the country, and I can't say enough about how enthusiatic and affectionate the children are. A special thanks goes out to the librarians in Truth or Consequences, Deming, Tucumcari and Socorro, who went out of their way to make me feel at home.
I strongly suggest that you plan a visit to New Mexico with your family sometime before your kids grow up. It truly is the land of enchantment, from the wide open prarie and the mountains, to Carlsbad Caverns, to the UFO Museum in Roswell and everywhere in between, there is something for everyone. This year I had the enormous pleasure of visiting Tinkertown, USA, where I believe I found a kindred spirit in Ross Ward, the man who carved over a thousand miniatures in Tinkertown. Many of his "philosophies of life" are displayed on plaques and signs throughout the museum, and my favorite is "You don't stop playing because you grow up, you grow up because you stop playing."
My philosophy exactly!

The Drive In

I want to say an extra special thank you to the owners and staff of the Milford Drive-In for a WONDERFUL and TOTALLY TERRIFIC time on Friday and Saturday nights! Even though the weather wasn't the best on Friday evening, we still had a pretty good crowd, and Saturday night the place was JAMMED. A big "hi" and thank you to everyone who had fun with me and the Judy Crew and went Koo-Koo with us!
I'm excited to report that I'll be BACK at the Milford Drive-In on Friday night, June 27, for the opening night of the new Disney-Pixar flick, WALL-E. It's sure to be a sell-out, so if you are planning on joining us, get there early for a prime spot!

Saturday, May 31, 2008


Hey~ Follow this link right now:
to go to and watch my brand new video, "Seven Words that Make Kids Laugh" taped at GTV studios. This is my latest crazy song, inspired by my friends who are twins...Adam and Ryan. In the video I'm joined by two great musicians, Evan on guitar and Travis on bongos . I hope the song makes you laugh!
If you are a YouTube member, please rate my video! And let me know what you think of the song!

Indy Rides Again!

Hi...I hope you had a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend. Philip and I honored our fathers with a trip up to the Veteran's Cementary in Maine to clean up their burial sites and say a few words. It was very hard but I'm glad we did it. I can hardly believe it's been ten years since my father passed away. I was very close to him and I would say he's probably the biggest reason why I have always loved to sing. He used to sing to me when I was very young, and as I got older I'd accompany him to church and he'd whisper "Sing louder, Judy!" into my ear during the hymns. Now that's when I feel closest to him...when I'm singing hymns in church.

Anyhow, we did do some fun stuff this weekend, and, to me, the best was going to see the new Indiana Jones movie. I had high hopes for it, being a fan (mostly of the original which is still the best) and I was not disappointed! I was DELIGHTED with the return of actress Karen Allen, who has given up acting full time to knit sweaters in the Berkshires. She was terrific as Indy's old flame Marion, who hasn't been seen since the first movie. Harrison Ford was great as the aging lead character, and we all loved Shia LeBeouf too. If you are an Indy fan I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.
Let me know what you think when you see it!

The New Judy Crew

I'm very excited about the new Judy Crew teen dance team that is now in rehearsals for our summer shows. We auditioned back in March and found a great bunch of talented kids who are working hard to learn the routines in time for June. If you plan to attend one of my summer concerts, be sure to keep an eye out for them, because after they dance on stage they'll be heading out into the audience to dance with your children! Look for the new Judy Crew page on this website soon to find out more about each member and see their pictures, too!

Judy at the Drive-In

I have been busily preparing for another great summer of touring, having fun and meeting lots of people, but perhaps the thing I am the most excited about is that I have been invited to be a part of the Summer-Long 50th Anniversary Celebration at the Milford Drive-In in Milford, NH. Drive-Ins are a dying breed, and we are fortunate to have a few still up and running here in the Granite State. I'm a drive-in girl from way parents used to pile us into the car in our PJs to go to shows at the Winslow Drive-In in Maine, and, in fact, that was where I had my very first job in the summer of 1976. So I was thrilled when the Drive-In contacted me and asked me to come play there this summer before the family features.
My first weekend will be Friday and Saturday, June 6 & 7, and I'll be performing at Screen One before the new Jack Black movie, Kung Fu Panda. My concert will start at 7:30 and will last for 45 minutes, then you'll have time to go to the concession stand and stock up on goodies, settle in and watch the show.
I hope you'll bring the kids and come out for a lot of good old fashioned fun!!
See you at the Drive-In!!

Family Fun Day at Hampshire Hills

On June 7th I will be performing at the Family Fun Day at Hampshire hills in Milford, NH to benefit the Jaiden Lyndi Tlapa Foundation. Jaiden was a dear little girl who lost her life in a tragic accident, and her family is channeling their love for her and their grief into this Foundation to assist families that have critically injured and terminally ill children. The foundation is also creating a website to bring together resources with needs, and hopes to focus on helping families to create special memories of their loved ones (hand-prints, DVD's with special photos and music, etc).

Another objective is to create a Jaiden Lyndi Tlapa Scholarship which will be awarded to a graduating senior who exemplifies certain character traits (compassion, kindness, outreach) and has made a positive impact in this world. Among other items, the application will look for volunteer hours, references, and most importantly an essay on how this person is planning to make a difference in this world.

The foundation will also support the NE Aquarium program at the Wadleigh Memorial Library, which was originally donated by Jaiden's Grandparents in her name.

I hope you will plan to spend part of your day at this fun event which will assist a very worthy cause. I'll be kicking things off at 11am...hope to see you there!

#75 With A Bullet!

I just learned that "The House on Christmas Street" has risen to #75 on the Clear Channel Radio New Music Chart, with over 600 plays! You can help it rise to the top by going here and playing it:

Speaking of helping me out, I'm getting ready to start the Judy Pancoast Street Team, an opportunity for you to spread the word about me and my music and win some great prizes, like CDs and t-shirts. Keep checking back here for full details, coming soon!

And, as always, thanks for everything!

The House on Christmas Street at Santa's Village

I'm very excited to announce that this summer my CD The House on Christmas Street will be available to purchase in the gift shops of Santa's Village, Santa's Summer Home in Jefferson, New Hampshire. Several of the songs on the CD have been playing on the village-wide sound system for several years now, and if you've visited there you've probably heard "Pickles" at least once! So this is a perfect match, and I'm just delighted!
A trip to Santa's Village is a summertime tradition for many New Hampshire families, and well worth the trip to the beautiful White Mountains from anywhere in New England or beyond. Plan a trip there with your family this summer, and now you'll have a part of that trip and a part of me to enjoy on the ride home!

Guest Book Disabled

Thanks for reading!

I'm Back! (plus a travel tip for families)

I just returned from a terrific weekend in Los Angeles with my girls. We attended the Grammy Awards, but that was just part of the fun. When I take trips with them I always do a little online research to find the strange, bizarre or just interesting little things that will make the trip more memorable. This time I found online, and took them to, the high school where the exterior shots of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" TV show was filmed, in Torrance, California. This is a show my girls have only begun watching on DVD in recent years, but everyone in our family enjoys it. They loved visiting "Sunnydale High", and so did I! We took lots of pictures outside the school in the places where "Buffy" and her friends congregated to discuss the latest disaster in "Sunnydale." I'm sure the good citizens of Torrance who drove by probably thought we were pretty strange!
The best part, was that, even with all this fun, visiting "Sunnydale High" didn't cost us an extra cent!
So, that's my travel tip for today....when you are planning a trip, even just a day trip, look for those special little extra locations that make the trip more fun. You might want to check out to find such unique items as the world's largest ball of string! You can always email me here, too....I know about a lot of such crazy spots, such as the giant Jimmy Carter peanut in Plains, GA., or the witch's foot on Colonel Buck's gravestone in Bucksport, Maine.
Happy Travels!

Planning for summer

As I write this it is only about 17 degrees in New Hampshire, and I am looking forward to my trip next month to sunny Los Angeles to attend the Grammy Awards! This will be my third time attending....hopefully next time I attend will be as a nominee in the children's category! (someday.......)
Anyhow, I'm thinking summer as well and have already begun to plan my summer performances. I'm thinking of driving out to New Mexico this year, instead of flying as I usually do in June, so I want to plan some performances along the way. If you live anywhere between New Hampshire and New Mexico, and would like me to perform at your local theatre, school or library, send me an email here at the website and we'll see if we can't work something out.
In the meantime, I hope you are warm, wherever you are, and thank you for thinking of me today.

Now you can look for my performance schedule in some additional places. Besides the calendar here on my website, New England area families can find my public events listed on
I'm also listing on a website called which is for concerts all over the country. On this website you can place a "demand" for one of my concerts in your area. If enough people from your area demand a performance, I'll try to plan a concert there! This is a unique feature and I hope my fans from all over will take advantage of it. As you know, my policy is "have piano, will travel!"

On a sadder note....

I do want to ask each and every person who reads this to say a prayer for the people of Kenya. If you have been following the news, you know there is a very serious political uprising in the country and terrible things are happening there. I have made many friends there on my trips to the Nyumbani orphanage, and I hear from them that they are living in hiding and in fear. As far as I know the orphanage is not in danger, but the folks who volunteer there and their families are terrified. Most of the citizens have left Nairobi, the capitol, to go into hiding in the country, where food is scarce.
Please pray for them, and pray that this terrible situation ends soon.
Thank you,

One Last "House on Christmas Street"

Happy New Year!! I'm very excited about 2008 and what the year holds in store. My wish is that you have a healthy, happy and safe new year. Thank you so much for your support, for visiting this website, reading this blog, and sharing my music. Without you I couldn't do all of this, and so I am very grateful.
I received a very lovely note from a guy named Joe in New York state who recently uploaded a video on YouTube of his house "playing my song!" You can watch the video here:
Thank you, Joe and family!
