Hi Everybody,

The next Singalong Soirée is coming up on March 27, and summer plans are falling into place-- time for me to send you an update!  There is always a lot on the go at Eve Goldberg official headquarters and many ways for you to be part of the music-making, so read on for details, and I hope I see you at one of these fine events soon.

It's Singalong Soiree time again!

This one falls on Easter weekend, so after you have had your delicious ham dinner, come on out and cleanse your palate with a pint and a hearty round of singing.

The Soirée is an evening of music that you can join in on. We combine our most singalongable originals with popular classic tunes, and we love to have the whole room singing with us. Music-loving listeners are more than welcome.

A Few of My Favourite Things

Wayne Shorter/Herbie Hancock Open Letter to Artists
I love these words of wisdom from two giants in the world of jazz.

Karen Dalton
I recently came across an interesting quote from Bob Dylan's book "Chronicles: Volume One:"  "My favorite singer...was Karen Dalton. Karen had a voice like Billie Holiday and played guitar like Jimmy Reed..." I had never heard of her so I looked her up. Wow! Here's a sample of her folk bluesy style, and here is a track that's a bit more rock-oriented. And here is her Wikipedia entry.

Petition to Exonerate Ethel Rosenberg
Ethel Rosenberg and her husband Julius were executed in the United States in 1953 for allegedly committing espionage. It was the height of anti-communist hysteria and the evidence now clearly shows that the case against Ethel was full of questionable evidence and fabrications. Her family is campaigning to have the U.S. federal government officially exonerate her. Here is a petition you can sign to support their efforts.
