This Saturday is the Summer Solstice. I’ll be celebrating. The Solstices are such a nice way to honor the passing of time, changing of seasons and our connection to nature.

Our Winter Solstice celebration was a month-long affair of intimate, cozy, candlelit gatherings with friends. It was introverted and quiet, like we were fortifying ourselves for the dark season of Winter.

The Summer Solstice is a whole other party. I’ll be out in the world, out in the sunshine, playing music throughout the city for Make Music Chicago — a festival inspired by Paris’ Fête de la Musique. This time of year it’s all about fun, smiles and being outdoors. The more the merrier.

Come celebrate the longest day of the year with me! I’ll be playing with the Fiddle Club of the World at three different locations. We’ll bring a festive set of American old-time and global fiddle music for your listening pleasure.

All events are free and open to the public.
