Janis on Sheldon's couch spot

Janis on Sheldon's couch spot

Unbelievable. April already. Just three months into the year and I've already done shows in six countries. I must be out of my mind...

<grin>

This will be quick, because I'm desperately trying to make deadlines for everything from my upcoming commencement speech at Warren Wilson College to my next shows with Karla Bonoff. And as many of you know, I'm having rotator cuff surgery in mid-May, which means I've had to cram everything I planned to do all summer into the next month. Impossible!

In the meanwhile, I got to attend a taping of Big Bang Theory and sit in Sheldon's spot... started a project with the incredible Dave Grusin and the equally talented Monica Mancini... had dinners with my pals Kevin Eubanks, and Akira Tsukahara... recorded my autobiography for release this fall via Audible.com...spent a fantastic afternoon at the home of Harlan & Susan Ellison... and broke bread with Captain America.

Who says life gets dull after 60?!

Hoping you are all the same...

    Buddy Mondlock and I wrote this some years back, but it sure is applicable now. My first "big show" was in Chicago, with Barbara Dane and the SNCC Freedom Singers, among others. My parents ran a summer camp; Pete Seeger was one of our music counselors, along with Bernice Johnson Reagon. A group called The Minutemen planted bombs in the 6-year-old's section one year because they didn't like blacks and whites mixing. I grew up in a family of conscience, and I'm grateful for them every day.

  • Pearl Foundation 2016 Endowments

    As always this time of year, I am thrilled to post these Pearl Foundation checks and letters, totaling $74,000 in 2016 endowments and bringing our "lifetime total" to $983,000 in scholarships for returning students.

    Thank you, everyone who purchased merchandise from my website, held a living room concert, and donated some amount in return for all the free items we offer!! Couldn't have done it without you...
