Once upon a time (back on March 1), String of Lights recorded a live house concert for our next upcoming release. The show was a wonderful success. The musicians were (as per usual) killin’ it – mostly softly, though Charlie did us a rock ‘n roll solid on that beautiful bass guitar of his. Jamie melted hearts with her cello, and Heather wailed like a banshee after a deep tissue massage. Our delightful house concert hosts made everyone feel at home with their warm hearts, front-of-house emceeing and back-of-house popcorn-machine tending. The audio and video techs did a bang-up job, and the audience was The. Best. Ever!
Then Covid happened.
Charlie grew tomatoes. Jamie went online with the Tanana Rafters. Heather squirreled herself away in her home studio and wrote more songs (which she has every intention of sharing once she gets on the level with Technology). Summer came to Alaska, and some of us can bear to be cooped up no more!
What’s up next? String of Lights Album #2 “Live at Telequana Tavern” CD Release is happening! June 25, 2020 – it is on! Weather permitting, String of Lights will be part of the Turnagain Arts “From a Distance” lineup for the official release party, details below. Because of schedules and social distancing, it will likely be the completely stripped-down singer-songwriter version of the String of Lights experience. For our friends who join us, please feel free to bring a snack, members of your “trusted pod” and park it for a few in the parking lot of the Turnagain Arts Building. The new CDs will be available at the show. CDs, digital downloads and streaming will also be available on a few different platforms, take your pick.
Other shows are in the works, while Heather is preparing new collaborations and releases with the band. We’d love to keep in touch, so if you enjoy the music please get on the mailing list or like String of Lights on facebook!
