Dear Friends!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page.  It sure is different to be a touring musician in quarantine.  Like so many of us, my entire spring schedule was canceled and I am home, trying to stay motivated and use this time creatively.

I have been doing live concerts on Facebook and am committed to continuing to at least once every five or six days.  I’m experimenting with times that will accommodate friends and fans in different time zones.

You can still view the first two!  They are open to the public.

With fingers crossed,  Mariah and I are prepping for ukulele festivals this coming spring.  This May, we ‘ve been invited to take part in The Old Songs Ukulele Festival in Albany, NY, as well as Amy Kucharik’s Somelele in Somerville, MA.

In November of 2020, my husband and plan to embark on a much-needed sabbatical.  We are planning to drive across country again. Even though I’ve toured non-stop for the past three decades, there are quite a few places in the middle of our country that I haven’t had a chance to get to.  I would welcome the opportunity to play for you if you have a house concert or community venue.

DOWNLOAD OUR NEW RECORDINGS:  The Ladies Auxiliary Ukulele Orchestra just put the finishing touches on a three song recording.  You can support us by downloading our songs at Bandcamp.com.

GRAND CANYON RAFT TRIP: RESCHEDULED FOR SPRING 2021!  The open seats filled very quickly...Let me know if you’d like to join the waiting list on this “Bucket List” adventure, which takes place April 30 – May 8, 2021. We spend eight days rafting the length of the canyon, starting at Lee’s Ferry and pull out at Diamond Creek.

IRELAND: SEPTEMBER 9 – 17, 2020 SOLD OUT!  We’ll visit castles from the middle ages and learn about the geological and religious history of Ireland. We’ll kayak under the stars in Skibbereen, visiting with phosphorescence and fairies, and we’ll participate in concerts, Irish pub sessions and a private music party. Drop me a line at blewis@williams.edu to be on our waiting list.

ARTIST EDUCATOR:  Most of you know that I often go to schools to talk about my family’s emigration from Germany in 1940, during WWII.  This year, I presented again at Monument Valley Middle School in Great Barrington, MA, Grand Canyon School in Grand Canyon, AZ, Mount Anthony High School in Bennington, VT, and just added Herberg Middle School to the list.  Drop me a line if you know a school or teacher that would be interested in hosting this timely presentation.
