Dear Companions, 

This has got to be the fastest year on record! I can't believe that it's almost 2018! I feel like I am still somewhere back in May, though the date on the calendar says it's getting into December. Wha' happen?

Yesterday, Tom Rozum and I finalized the dates for our 2018 rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, in Idaho. See below for details. I am so excited to be revisiting this beautiful country and healing waters.

And lastly, we're having a sale! All Spruce and Maple label CDs are now $10 each, including the re-issue of Winter's Grace, through December! Details below. In case you're wondering, the title of this newsletter comes from Jean Ritchie's beautiful song, Wintergrace, from our album of nearly the same name.

If you are anywhere near our traveling route, please come see us if you can. If you are far away, consider spreading the word to your family and friends. And fight for our clear water, clean air, and wild places.

Winter's Grace
WINTER'S GRACE REVISITED

For the 20th anniversary of its original release, Tom Rozum and I have decided to re-manufacture our long-out-of-print Winter Solstice/Holiday CD! It should be in hand by Dec 15, and ready to ship to everyone, just under the wire for Christmas. And it joins the other Spruce and Maple sale CD's, above available for $10 each. 

Order Here



"Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum celebrate not just the Christmas holiday, but the entire winter solstice season... they explore winter's beauty, joys and hardships. Winter's Grace is one of the few seasonal recordings worth hunting down."

  - Derk Richardson, East Bay Express

"Good music for the holidays can be hard to come by. So when a gem like this comes by, grab it!"
  - Old Time Herald
LOOKING AHEAD:
RIVER TRIP 2018

Tom Rozum and I will be spending six days on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho next summer. The Middle Fork is considered the "Champagne of Whitewater Rafting." Noted for its generally crystal-clear waters, abundant wildlife sightings, hot springs, fishing opportunities, and excellent campsites, this six-day, five-night trip is not to be missed. If you have been contemplating joining us on a trip for years, this is the one! If you have been on our trips in the past, we welcome you back.

READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Journalist Joshua Zucker wrote a lovely article/interview in the San Francisco Chronicle on November 23, in a lead-up to our annual Thanksgiving weekend concert at the Freight and Salvage.

BLUEGRASS IN THE GORGE

Since the demise of Bluegrass at the Beach, I have been on the lookout for an opportunity to get together with music friends in the Northwest who want to hone their skills, and spend time just reveling in music. I have found that opportunity! Tom Rozum, Brandon Godman, Justin Hiltner and I will be spending four days in April at the beautiful Menucha Retreat and Conference Center, on the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. Come join us!
