Kasey Chambers "Beautiful Mess"

A word about deep tissue massage. Ahhhh. Really! After having surgery in late March there is scar tissue in my foot, which has limited my mobility. It has been making me limp, which was the initial reason I had the surgery to begin with. Three months of taking baby steps to getting better, but now I want to take it on; walking, hiking, biking, getting physical again with no limits. It is time to get going. But I have been favoring my left side, and throwing my right out. Backstage at High Sierra Music Festival was a massage tent, with an incredible team of dedicated people. What a wonderful thing as a counterpoint to working the Fat Music webcast. The folks were from Oakland, California, so if you are ever there and in need, I would be happy to hook you up with Fred Blake and his Dad, Art. Caring, giving, helping, healing.

These kinds of disciplines used to be less well regarded back in the old days when it HAD to be Western medicine or nothing. I am so glad other things are being embraced now. I like the medical practitioners who combine alternative with conventional. And I say why not. You know, so does Kasey Chambers. She prominently displays her endorsement of the NIIM.  I am going to be seeing her in concert soon, and I can’t wait to catch up with her on all the other lovely things that have been going on in her life for these last few years. It is just a quick US tour in support of her new album Little Bird. Here are her US dates, I hope she is coming to a city near you. And a new Kasey Chambers album is always a treat! Here is one of the tunes from it, “Beautiful Mess.”

Stonehoney "Independence Day"

Having spent a wonderful weekend amidst the music in the mountains at High Sierra Music Festival, I can attest that freedom is a wonderful thing to celebrate. Like the freedom of these road trips I take to music events, whereupon people get to immerse themselves in their passion, share the experience with one another, and in essence, create a city out of a rural pasture or fairgrounds. Often overheard at these events is "Why can't life be like this all the time?" With good friends, good music, good food and good times. And I would also suggest good citizenship, so that we can keep the lifestyle afloat. That means tending to our environs, to keeping engaged in our democracy.

In years gone by, Independence Day has signified so many things for me, from the days with radio where we did the fireworks and programmed the music, to the ones where you savor patriotism like after 911, to the personal declaring of separation from a co-dependent relationship, and everything in between.

We hung out with Stonehoney in May at the Cherokee Creek Music Festival, and they played us some brand new songs. Stonehoney tour dates are listed here. They are powerful players. And what ever you do, however you declare your own version of independence this 4th, remember the troops, and all who came before in support of Lady Liberty. Watch the fireworks, observe the burn ban, and get home safe.

We bring you Stonehoney's Dave Phenicie, taking the lead on "Independence Day."
