Saturday took me to one of the coolest museums I’ve had the chance to play at – the Grounds For Sculpture, outside of Trenton, NJ. And, it was Ground Hogs Day, as well!! Two very friendly sets with families, Sophia’s birthday party, little toddlers, and a whole lot of shakin’ going on! A photographer for the Gardens was there, so look to their site in the future. This place has wide-open spaces with large pieces, winding paths with smaller surprises, indoor sculpture exhibits, cafe, etc., etc. Check it out. I plan to go visit in the spring with my wife, Kim. It’s beautiful any time of the year. www.groundsforsculpture.org/
Sunday took me back home to CT to tote firewood, do my laundry and head up northwest to Roaring Brook Nature Center, home of the world-class folk venue, open mike haven and the loving care of Jay Kaplan. Jay and his o’possum opened the show for me, and I opened with the ever popular 5 Little Possums. Rosalie helped me out with the Happy Shark, which I learned from her. Check out the good stuff in Canton, CT. http://www.sciencecenterct.org/rbncpage/home.html
Off to PA, and listen to the Giants win the Super Bowl.
