Songwriters Retreat Dates and Boston Area Gigs

Songwriters Retreat Dates and Boston Area Gigs

Hello Friends,

I hope you are well!

You are invited to apply for the 2018 “Catie at the Cove" songwriters retreat that I host every summer with Jenna Lindbo and Scott Stoll. The Cove is on Georgetown Island, ME and this year the retreat is being held June 26th -July 1st. If you want five days to explore creativity and songwriting in a gorgeous pristine setting, surrounded by supportive folks and good humor, get info and apply here!
We will be accepting folks on a rolling basis until the retreat is full. We set a cap of about 15 participants.

Next news, I am touring (only locally, keep your hats on!) All of the following shows are less than 30 minutes from my house, closer to the venues than some hotels I used to stay in!

The first concert is on FEB 10th at 8pm at New View Cohousing in West Acton, MA, and produced by local musician/producer Eric Kilburn. He in fact recorded my Dandelion cassette in 1989. Yes I said that. This venue has lots of great artists who come through, such as Cosy Sheridan, Ferron, David Mallet, etcetera. email Eric to make your $20 reservation: Address: 25 Half Moon, in the Common Room, West Acton, MA

Two weeks later, I return to the Homegrown Coffeehouse in Needham, MA on FEB 24th at 8 PM. This is one of the first professional gigs I ever played, back in the early 90’s. They are masterful carrot cake bakers in their 35th season, and told me I am “part of their history.” I think that’s a good thing! Reservations can be made at

And last on this tireless run (haha) is a show presented by Braintree Folk, at the All Souls Coffeehouse, in Braintree! Lindsay Straw opens. Reservations are here: 196 Elm St, Braintree, MA, $15.

I am really looking forward to getting back up on stage and having fun. I’ve got a couple of new songs and a couple hundred old ones. I promise I won’t play them all.

I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new folks too.
