West Marin's own "The Old Way" (Irena and Joshua Smith) kicked off the locals series last year. "The Old Way" return to the church space to host a double bill with some good friends, who happen to be musicians of the highest order, on tour from NY. The wonderful couple duo "Mike and Ruthy" (Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar) out of Woodstock, will be performing their impeccable harmonies, poignant instrumentals, and perfectly crafted tunes in a rare West Marin performance not to be missed! "Mike and Ruthy" are a mainstay of the American folk scene. They have performed backing Pete Seeger over the past several years, and bring a wealth of unique perspective as one of the small number of torchbearers carrying the Hudson River Valley musical legacy into the future. Fans of acoustic music will not want to miss this show!

Welcome to the world of She Who Thrills in the Ordinary. These are photographs of who, what and where has stopped me in my tracks, lured me forward, downward, upward, outward and inward toward what I had thought I already knew, but was humbled to find that I had not even been close to knowing. This collection has been years in the making and you will be the first ones to see it. Dive in! I invite you to rejoice in the unexpected beauty and captivating strangeness of the apparently mundane corners and niches of Life.
Celebrate the opening with me on one of the most powerful days of the year to celebrate life - Dia de los Muertos - Saturday, November 1st 2-5pm. Dress up and stick around for our annual community ceremony.
For over 3000 years, the indigenous people who lived in Mexico, the Southwest and California, have celebrated a ritual honoring the dead. Over the time, this ritual became known as El Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. A celebration of life, a time to share memories through arts and crafts, music, stories and food. Join us in celebrating those who have gone before us. El Dia de los Muertos is not a sad time but a time of remembering and rejoicing. A communal altar will be constructed so please bring photos, flowers or mementos of a loved one. Aztec dancers will conclude the night's festivities. The celebration will also include a candle light procession and local Mexican food and drink.
