Don’t miss the amazingly talented Chris Dorman and Steve Leaf in concert as they raise money for the annual Family Wisdom Conference! This is a very rare and special opportunity to see both musicians under one roof as Chris Dorman has recently moved with his family from Michigan to a farm in Vermont. Support a great cause while enjoying a one-of-a-kind musical experience! Tickets can be purchased for $10 at the door or $8 pre-sale at Higher Grounds and Oryana. Get your tickets before they sell out! For questions, or to reserve will call tickets please contact Sairy Franks at email@example.com.
Chris Dorman is both dreaming and living a dream shared by perhaps a small fraction of people living and working and playing and dreaming on this planet, a slice of the population striving to get back to, or forward to, a simple way of life in which it is possible to slow down, live true and begin again. This is the message on Dorman’s new release, To Begin Again, a hybrid of contemporary folk tunes merging grass roots instruments like banjo, harmonica and saw with instruments commonly associated with orchestras, such as cello and oboe. Songwriting is a natural medium for Chris to share what he feels, and he often writes about his own experiences. His live performances turn venues into living rooms and audiences to friends. www.myspace.com/chrisdorman
Steven Leaf is doing pretty well these days. Steven enjoys writing songs, some with words and some without. The words in Steven’s songs are sometimes intentional and sometimes cryptic. For the cryptic songs, Steven does apologize and he hopes you can bear with him. Steven has finally finished his first album entitled ‘We Are Ghosts’ which was met with acclaim by several critical listeners including his mother, close friend Mitchell and several other people that have asked to remain nameless. http://www.myspace.com/steveleafmusic. You can also catch him slaying audiences with his bass and banjo skills in the roots rock group Go Long Mule www.myspace.com/golongmule.
