Happy New Year! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and hopeful heading into 2021. My heart goes out to everyone that's suffered sickness, distress, financial stress, and the sense of uncertainty that comes as a result. Please know that I'm with you in spirit.
The McHughs have been hunkered down, working on lots of material as we prepare to resume public performances as circumstances allow. In the meantime, we have re-recorded my 1988 release, SHADOWS ON THE LAND which is due out later this year. Over the years, Casey and Morgan cited the original SHADOWS ON THE LAND as their favorite recording of mine. We're excited to present it to you and will soon be sharing some cuts on this site. On the writing front, I'm in the latter stages of finishing a sequel to my 2004 novel, THE POET CHRONICLES. The sequel is entitled: VENDOR'S ROW. Please sign up on my mailing list if you're interested in learning more.
Please also check out below, three videos of Morgan and I, courtesy of The Northwest Straits Foundation. And, please support them in their quest to restore the sacred, Salish waters we know as home.
If you haven't already, please check NOBODY KNOWS HOW TO SAY GOODBYE, our tribute to George Floyd and Black American victims of police violence. Morgan McHugh sings lead on this haunting song written by The Lumineers:
A DAY WILL COME is a musical collaboration with a 20th Century film legend and timeless visionary featuring this actor's speech from his 1940 film THE GREAT DICTATOR - a cry for all humanity to stand together against the rising tide of fascism. The result is a powerful soul-connection stretching back across the decades - a song of inspired hope in these dark times. Watch the video by clicking on the image below:
