Welcome

I'm a Scottish singer-songwriter and sacred musician, now living on the West coast of America.  These songs are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you. 
 

Previous events

Inclusive worship service at Avamere

Avamere, 1201 Hancock Street, Port Townsend

I lead an non-denominational worship service at Avamere assisted living centre.
All are welcome - this sacred gathering is intended for elders who live in the facility but anyone can come so please do come.

Spiritual exploration for 20- to 40-somethings

Bear Root Apothecary, 1002 Lawrence Street, Port Townsend

I’m offering this spiritual discussion and exploration space for people who are interested in the sacred, but don’t relate to traditional religion. This group will create a supportive space where individuals can come together to share insights, gain some learning to support the heart knowledge they already hold, and try out new spiritual practices, like Sufi breath work, shamanic theta prayer, and monastic meditations.

Why the age restriction? Each month I lead many different types of services. Most of these are well attended by P.T.’s thriving 50-and-older folks, but don't reach younger people, who may not share the same sacred language, and often don’t feel comfortable in a “churchy” setting. This group is specifically geared to center around the lifestyle, language, and spiritual needs of 20- to 40-somethings.

Cost is $10 per person

The community boat project, Lower Hadlock Road, Port Hadlock

This event will be the second concert on the theme of courage & facing ones fear played from the cockpit of the Felicity Ann.

Aimee and I are very much looking forward to playing onboard the Felicity Ann (the boat sailed by the first woman to singlehand the Atlantic). The workshop where the Felicity Ann lives is unheated so dress warm and perhaps bring a comfy chair too. Come and enjoy the stories, songs and celebration.

A large percentage of the proceeds will be given to two local charities that work with transgender youth:

The Felicity Ann &

LGBTQ+ Legislative Theatre Youth Project.

Tickets $15 on the door with no-one being turned away for lack of funds.

To get to the community boat project turn left as you go down the hill towards Ajax (if you get to the Ajax cafe you've gone too far). Take the dirt road on the left immediately after the apartment buildings. Drive up the hill, go through the gate and you'll see our huge colorful workshop.

Once again, dress warm because the workshop is a cold. Hot beverages and soup will be provided.
