Welcome to Spring (finally!) πŸ™‚

I hope you are well. I’m doing great and feeling the joy from all the wonderful friends (old and new) who I performed with at Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, MS and Memphis, TN on Beale Street last month.

The fun musical adventures continue. Last night I performed at the Boston Chamber of Commerce Annual meeting – playing a pop song (yes!) with another wonderfully talented fellow street performer violinist friend – Vivian Lou – on a platform in the middle of a huge ballroom. πŸ™‚

I’m gearing up for a very busy summer. Check my Calendar page – which I update frequently – for full list of dates. I’m thrilled to be part of the Boston Improvement Business Development Concert series. I’ll be performing (solo) at various outdoor sites near downtown crossing all summer long. I’ll still be in the subway, and all kinds of other venues (Goorin Hat Store on Newbury Street in Boston, summer concert series in Providence, North Atlantic Blues Fest in Maine – amongst many fun solo shows…) πŸ™‚ I’ll surely be offering some home-baked Ilana Katz Katz cookies at some of my performances – from time to time. FREE – as always! You all know I love to bake! πŸ™‚

I enjoy the array of performances I get to do and am, especially grateful to all the musicians who invite me to perform alongside them (I’ve got some shows with the very special Racky Thomas and the Medicine Show Revival Band comin’ up!) I hope you get to hear some live music soon…outside…in the subway… or go on out and hear a new musician you’ve never heard. Take a chance and enjoy the music! πŸ™‚

I hope to see you out there. You can always send me a note via my contact page, as I’d love to hear about *you* and your summer plans. Have a GREAT day! .

Sending you all hope, blessings, love, and light,

ilana πŸ™‚
