First of all, many thanks to those that made the CD release concert a success. The staff at Club Passim continued their tradition of professionalism, Martin Grosswendt was brilliant as an accompanist as he is as a solo, and my beautiful wife Joan Sherman sold many CDs to old friends and new. I hope to sell more at First Night Rockport (MA), the Linden Tree in Wakefield in February, and more gigs as they come up, including the New Bedford Folk Festival and the Old Songs Festival next summer. Check the Calendar section of the site for more info.
But the big news is right here on the website, and in a few days should be all over the web. If you look at the banner atop the homepage, you'll see a new page titled, wait for it, STORE. Right now it's ready to sell not only "Until We Must Part", but every 21st century CD I've recorded to people in the US. We take all major credit cards, PayPal, and ApplePay. We will be adding CDs as well. My wonderful daughter Elizabeth Bedford has been coaching me and holding my hand long distance as I learn the design and operation of this web site, and I'm finally getting the hang of it.
If you eschew plastic as you buy or stream your music, all the songs from "Until We Must Part" as well as "The Desert Questions" are available as individual downloads from the other half of the store. If that process is a little too clunky for you, we're working on it, and more importantly, our online distributor is working on it. "Until We Must Part" and "The Desert Questions" should be available on major online music stores and streaming services any time from now to a few days to a couple of weeks from now. Yes, that means Pandora, Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music, and others, If you see them there, please give me a shoutout and let me know.
That means that this music, much of it unavailable unless you've come to my shows, is available to the whole world. Those of you who know me know that I've never really gone anywhere--but it's good to be back.
