I am feeling so blessed with opportunities as we head into 2015.
My ARTful MUSICal show, “The Goddess is Alive and Well and Living in a Thrift Store”, will be debuting at the prestigious Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival.
Join me and my band The Sparks, on March 1, 7 PM

Five-time WAMMIE winner Rachel Ann Cross and her band The Sparks will take you on a multimedia musical journey to discover “The Goddess” where you least expect her. Inspired by contemporary thrift stores and their kinship to the ancient marketplaces of old — a place where cultures meet and exchange wares, news, and ideas — Rachel’s performance will feature repurposed junk guitars, playable works of art, and other musical instruments created from recycled materials and thrift store treasures. The audience will be invited to contribute the lyrics to a song that will debut at the concert. Enjoy an evening that celebrates the creative energy of not only this uplifting multi-disciplinary artist, but of the divine feminine that takes many surprising forms in today’s world. The Washington Post says,” Rachel’s lyrics are meant to inspire listeners to laugh or dance or to witness the breadth of her imagination.”
I am also thrilled to announce a new project which is a collaboration between the Brentwood Arts Exchange and The ARC of Prince George’s county. I will be facilitating the creation of murals with a population of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. http://www.thearcofpgc.org/index.html
I am loving being artist-in-residence for the City of Greenbelt and all that that entails. This new incarnation has literally given me a space to create music and art. I also love working with my Greenbelt elementary school students, my homeschoolers, and the adults in my strum and sing classes.
Thanks for your continuous love and support!
Cheers and Gratitude,
