The new version of "Dad's Yard" now released FREE here (with artwork) so scroll down and have at it!  

"Hello, Stranger", the string band sessions CD I recorded earlier this year with Garry West at Compass Records, will be available as an itunes exclusive on June 16th!  The actual CD, with cover art by best-selling illustrator/humorist Suzy Becker, will be released soon after.  More details coming soon!  

The BIG news today, is that the new version of my song "Dad's Yard," which I recorded with Grammy Award-winning musicians Stuart Duncan (Allison Krauss sideman), Alison Brown, George Marinelli and Darrell Scott, is available here as a free download!  I have always thought that "Dad's Yard" would make a good tribute song/gift for Fathers Day (or to celebrate anyone whose motto in life is "Never throw anything away"). So as of today,  "Dad's Yard" is here at!  There is also artwork that you can download as a card/insert for the CD jewel case (make sure to reuse an old, scratchy jewel case in keeping with the song) which would make it an excellent Father's Day card with CD.  Thanks to Compass Records for offering this gift to you.  

This year has been pretty amazing so far.  I got to dig in to the Sweet Life (Sept 2008), on the road in an extremely fun fall tour, including sold out performances in venues such as the Birchmere in Alexandria VA. I had the chance to share the gift of music through my Aspire to Inspire Guitar Initiative, which provided guitars to young musicians of limited financial means. In January, I performed at the HRC Inaugural Ball for Barack Obama, in February I brought Sweet Life to the UK, and in March and April I continued touring the United States, including a benefit concert in Madison with the Indigo Girls, Dar Williams and Ani Difranco.

I look forward to September, when I will join the the Olivia team on their Alaska Cruise.  I can't tell you how excited I am for the trip, and for the pleasure of performing to an Olivia audience.  Olivia has included you and me in this cool promotion:

"Join Catie on Olivia and get $100 off!   For the next 30 days, Olivia is offering a group program discount to all Catie fans who want to join her on the Alaka Cruise, Sep 20 - 27, 2009. Just call Olivia at 1.800.631.6277, tell us you are part of the Catie Curtis group and you will receive $100 off per person. For more information on the trips, just go to "   Maybe this is the time!  Honeymoon, anyone?  

I am about to enter summer mode, when I hang out with my kids on the shores of Lake Michigan until early August.  There are just a couple events during June and July.  One is a recently added a house concert in Topsfield MA, on June 14. The 7 pm show is sold out and they are adding another at 9:30 for which tickets are still available.   Also, I will be in Provincetown, MA on July 2nd at a show presented by public radio station WOMR.  

I hope you all are finding your own summer mode--  whatever that means to you!  

See you out there,
ps:  of course I'll still be on FACEBOOK this summer--- friend me sometime.
