This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to "Shake the Dust Off Your Sandals," one of my original songs. You can read about the song’s history, review the lyrics, and listen to the song. If you want to add the song to your playlist, you can download it at Amazon or iTunes.
On Thursday, 6/16, Connie Deming will perform in the Side room at Buffalo Bill’s. When Connie is in the Side Room, it becomes her living room, and she makes her guests feel right at home for the entire evening. If you like artists such as Joni Mitchell and Carole King, you’ll love Connie! Rather than tell you about her, I offer you these videos of Connie in previous shows in the Side Room:
”Across the Table”
”Colors of the Island”
”Look at You”
”Sweet Dancers of the Little Cafe
Hope you can join us for the show!
The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created four CDs, one for each of our four seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.
The concerts take place on the first and third Thursdays of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:
