Wanted–Dead Only!

WANTED—DEAD ONLY!

When Kris played in the Shakespeare festival in Ashland, Oregon, a fellow musician in the Green Show told us this story…

He’d been the bass player for Country Joe and the Fish in the 60’s but later sometime in the 80’s was promoting his own original music. He asked a well-known establishment if they would carry his CD’s.

The reply was, “We’re sorry. We only sell the music of composers who are no longer living.”

“Well, I do plan to die one day,” he cheerfully offered.

It didn’t fly.

It brings to mind the immortal lyrics penned by that inimitable master of satire, Eric Idle:
“Life’s a piece of shit
When you look at it,
So always look on the bright side of death.”

So, although we too plan to die one day, on Sunday, April 28 we’re optimistically (or audaciously, not exactly sure which) planning a concert of our own original, world music at the Delta Music School and, death jokes aside, we welcome you to please join us!

    First time performing Lark’s new song: SUCH A SPECIAL FEELING
        “Seems the winter’s chill is yielding,
        Clear love warms my world now.”

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING

“We have received your new CD and want to thank you.  We love it!  I forgot what a beautiful voice you have. Just so you know, I don't think you sound like anyone.  You are just your own amazing artists.  But for the sake of the request I suggest Angus & Julia Stone.  I think people who enjoy them will enjoy you.”
Melissa Matthews, British Columbia

“Thank you Lark & Kris for your inspiring, beautiful music! With much appreciation…"
Karen McCombe, New York

"The cord that THE BALLAD strikes in my heart is one of music that brings out a deep sense of community, people saying: Hey, this is us. …. The human spirit that will never be snuffed out – no matter the adversary."                                                    Samm Musoke, Nova Scotia

"I fell in love with Lark and Kris’s music the first time I heard it. It has an uplifting, inspiring quality which as a musician and songwriter I appreciate. Subsequently after my grandson was born I started playing him songs and he loved them. We had many a good time dancing to songs and once he was walking and talking he would request the music again and again and loves to dance and/or drum along. Thank you Lark and Kris for your gift of music to the world."                                    Suzanne Lichau, Oregon

"Dear Lark and Kris,
 
I'm writing on behalf of the South Fraser Gogos (stephenlewisfoundation.org) to thank you so much for your fantastic contribution to our Potluck Evening. You made the Grandmothers welcome quite spectacular and one I'm sure they will remember.

Everyone enjoyed the rest of your music and singing and seeing everyone up dancing is a sight I'll always remember. Wishing you all the very best,                       Jesse Pringle, Go Go Grannies Co-coordinator, British Columbia

"Kuimba weaves a magical spell with their enchanting melodies, mesmerizing harmonies, and penetrating lyrics. The music is at once universal and uniquely personal . . . the musicians share themselves with their audiences in an intimate and moving manner."                                       Julia J. Heydon, PhD. Music, Former Music Director, Oregon Shakespearean Festival
