Please join my kickstarter campaign

logo2smallAlmost all my shows are free to the public because of grant funding, but here’s your opportunity to show support for my work. I’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to pay artist fees for a performance and video recording of Listen to Seattle at Town Hall on Indigenous Peoples Day. Within the first week I’m already 12% of the way toward my goal. Contribute $10, $25, or $100 by October 8 and get your name printed in the program.
