Tour Diary! Whoo!

*My friend Susan just sent me a whole bunch of new pictures, so I have significantly added to the Cambridge, Mass. portion of this post.*

Hope you all had a sufficiently spooky Halloween! It was plenty ghoulish around here. I amended my Secret Supper idea to become a secret SONGWRITER supper, cooking and singing on a spooky theme. Mr. JB White was my accompanist, and we ate pumpkin soup with eyeball garnish and sang songs by Elvis Costello, Tori Amos, Conor Oberst and more.

It was so much fun!

Here are pictures. Very soon I will have recordings of the event to share too.
