Jamie O. Dec E-News ~ 12/2 Concert, Gifts, new & holiday CDs

Christmas Ladies Hoem JournalA Note from Jamie
The season of light is fast upon us, and so is our annual Christmas concert!  I’ve had quite a year with a new grandbaby: Olive, a new home and a new album: “I Know Where I’m Going.” Peter Swenson’s original music is featured on his new album “There is a Season,” by the ensemble Coeur de Lis. Daughters Meg and Nia have just launched The Moxie Podcast, with cousin Briavael at the controls. (Listen here.)  For our Dec 2 concert at Chief O’Neill’s, we’re featuring songs from 4 of my CDs. Meg and Nia, Belinda Bremner, and (bassist and former Rogue) John Floeter will be with us. Below are links to the concert & albums. Peace to ALL. Jamie
