From the Desk of Elaine Maisel, FeatherMore Friends is her monthly newsletter to keep in touch and share upcoming events and news.

Hello, Holidays! 

The holiday season is quickly appearing with a vengeance. Turkeys and trees and twinkle lights, oh my! I’m furiously working on commissioned pieces for Christmas, prepping for shows, and also carving out time each day to prepare for the holiday concerts I have on my calendar.
When I’m not painting feathers, you’ll usually find me working as a bassoonist. On that note, I’m delighted to share the video for Happy This Christmas with you. It is by Scottish songwriter Tommy McClymont and the Pancea Jamband. We made the recording this past summer. Listen for me on bassoon and my sweet husband Ty Maisel on fiddle. 

Cheers! - Elaine
