Well 2013 has been quite the intense year, so far. Nina has recuperated & rebounded very well from her bout with appendicitis at the end of March. The tragic events surrounding my fathers health crisis since last August are finally over, as he passed away on May 3rd. It was followed by the marriage of my very special down syndrome niece, Gretchen on May 11th. We're all sure my father choose to leave, just prior to her wedding, so he could fulfill his promise to walk her down the aisle. The gatherings of so many of our families extended family & friends at these yin & yang, back to back events was just beautiful. The emotional roller coaster ride of tears & laughter have been a catharsis of soul cleansing for so many of the years frustrations.
This Saturday I hope you'll be joining us for our documentary film "In the Night Sky". Based on local writer Linda Zimmermans' book of the same name. We're asking $10 for the event, but it will get you a $5 discount on purchasing the book or DVD. You know it's not a big space so come early if you want a good seat. We'll open at 8pm & start the film at 830pm.
We've been wrapping up the final schedule for this years Rosendale St Fest. Bobby & I will be running the Cafe Stage again & I can assure you it's gonna be another dynamite year of great homegrown Hudson Valley music, for sure!
Further down the road, Bobby & I are in discussion with the Rosendale Theatre to put an event on Friday, November 22nd 2013, the 50th Anniversary of JFK's assassination. Any fellow Paranoid Conspiracy Freaks who wanna get involved should let me know, I've already got a few special guests lined up.
Keep Lookin' Up! Peace & Love Prevails...<3~*jimbo

Leo Glaser & Rich Newman are singer-songwriters in the acoustic folk, folk-rock tradition. They have been part of the Hudson Valley music scene for over 30 years. Rich and Leo's songs have been influenced by such great composers and lyricists as Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Laura Nyro, and Bruce Springsteen, just to name a few. And yet, Rich and Leo have created their own unique, specially blended sound, singing about such topics as strength and perseverance, love and family, the wonder of nature, and about various social issues.
