Drop the Knife, A Memoir-in-Song Videos

Missed Jeanne Mackey's debut performance of Drop the Knife, A-Memoir-in-Song on Sunday, November 21 in Ann Arbor. Ms. Mackey celebrated her 60th birthday by composing a musical reflection on turning 60. It was a promise she'd made to herself and I'm glad she kept. Jeanne has several videos of the evening on youtube which is linked here. Don't miss Different by Now, and No Time to Hesitate - but I like Doomed and Land of the Sidhe, too. Musical meditation is good for this holiday week, and reflecting on a life well-lived in music is restorative. Thanks to Ms. Mackey for sharing the musical journey!

  1. Hi Linda,
    Thanks for this. Funny, now that I've sung about making peace with my life and declaring that it's "enough," people who saw the show expect me to live accordingly--and remind me when I backslide! Ah, the power of art to help us integrate life lessons!

    We recorded a selection of these songs at Eric Fithian's Electric Farm Studio in Dexter. The CD, Drop the Knife: A Memoir-in-Song, is available at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore and online at CD Baby.
