Show Notes

Ah some music...yay! Teri Smolens and Seabury Gould join me all the way from Northern California to sing original songs from their album, Newsicals, written during Covidtime. One of a kind!!

BIO: Teri Smolens, the singer - songwriter, has a lifelong connection to folk music and a background in musical theater. Growing up in the 1960s and 70s, she also had exposure to classic rock, jazz, blues, and the topical music made popular by the many rallies and protests of the era. Forced into early retirement from her catering business of 25 years by the 2020 lockdown's, she was left with lots of time to research (another passion) and write, shifting her shifting her creative outlet from food to songs. "Newsicals" was created to make the news, in some small way, music to the ears - perhaps easier to take in and digest via melodies and humor.

BIO: Seabury Gould is an eclectic musician, multi- instrumentalist, singer, recording artist, music teacher & storyteller. He is perhaps especially known for his singing & playing of guitar, bamboo flute & Irish bouzouki.  He plays solo & with other musicians in a variety of styles including traditional Irish/Celtic music, original songs, folk songs, blues, music of India, & Beatles songs. One of Seabury's main inspirations was folk musician & activist Pete Seeger who coined the phrase "Think Globally, Sing Locally".  He is originally from the Philadelphia area where he started playing guitar at age 11. He has lived on the 'Redwood coast' in Humboldt county for 18 years. Seabury is a composer, songwriter & arranger. He leads singalongs with an emphasis on "Hope-ful songs". In his extensive diverse work for adults & children, he facilitates musical wholeness through exploring how the ear, heart, hands & intelligence can be cultivated.
