AUTUMN RIDGE HOUSE CONCERT WITH BILL CHAMBERS & BILL PASSALCQUA (BILL POSS)

We’re really looking forward to hosting Bill Chambers, all the way from Australia, a talented singer-songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist, & just an all-around interesting character. We first saw him performing outside the Lincoln Center in NYC, accompanying his daughter, Kasey Chambers. Opening for Bill Chambers will be another Bill, our longtime friend & veteran singer-songwriter, Bill Passalacqua, or Bill Poss, as he is known in the biz. If we can fit me in, I’ll play a song or two as well. With all of that music, I don’t know if we’ll have room for a local poet, but maybe we’ll squeeze one in, as is becoming our new custom. Should be a great night!

Music Therapy/Performance at Pavilion Foundation Hospital

Another installment of music therapy at the Pavilion Foundation Hospital partial hospital drug & alcohol treatment program. It's very special to play for the patients & talk about recovery. Making it even more special, 16 years ago I was the director of the drug & alcohol & psychiatric programs at the Pavilion, before moving on to start my own practice. The practice is now a successful clinic, so I have more time to play music & provide music therapy!
