December News from Elias Alexander
Recording projects, gigs and new songs
Happy Holidays, everyone!
Ahhh, what a year it’s been! I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I’ve had in 2017 and the amazing people I’ve had the privilege to work with. Thank you to each of you for sharing this year of light with me, from far or near.
Taking Our Life was a massive success last month, with great turnouts and some amazing post-show discussions.
Winter is a time of turning inwards, reflecting, and creating. This season I’ll be spending lots of time working on new material and recordings.
First MAC will appear in the Seattle and Portland areas, bringing the holiday cheer as only MAC can.
Then I’ll be spending four days with some of my favorite musicians at a farm in upstate New York workshopping and recording a whole batch of my new original songs. I can’t wait to show you what we create!
Then Soulsha will be appearing to blast in the New Year at the annual First Night celebration in Saranac Lake, New York. Looking forward to a night of big smiles and multicultural mayhem.
In January I’ll head into the studio up in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, to record an album of Gaelic songs and tunes with none other than the amazing Màiri Britton on vocals and stepdancing, Katie McNally on fiddle, and Neil Pearlman on piano, accordion, and stepdancing. More on that later!
Work hard, delve deep, and take care of each other, and I hope to see you out there in this big world!
Still looking for gifts for the holidays?
Consider getting your friends and family some great music.
