This month’s music comes from a show with my daughter Mally at the studio of HCAM-TV in Hopkinton, MA. Also, an invitation to join me at the Lizard Lounge on Tuesday evening, July 6.

This Month’s Music

After last month’s light-hearted video featuring my daughter Mally and niece Meryl, I received many very nice e-mails asking me to show off some more music from Mally. Most of her musical energy these days is spent with her band, The And Company. It is always a great pleasure when Mally can join me on stage. Two months ago we shared a special morning at Chery Perreault’s monthly television series, “Wake Up and Smell the Poetry“. Here are two of the six songs from that show, performed for a live audience at HCAM-TV in Hopkinton, MA.
Long time friends of TomSmithMusic, will recall “Peabody Hill”. It is a song I wrote about the place where my family and close friends share some peace and pancakes in a simple cabin in the woods. This song was written after our dog Oscar was scolded for chasing the neighbor’s chickens.

Shortly before the show, Mally had completed writing a new song – so new it still doesn’t have a title. Summer is a perfect setting for a new song about new love. What fun to add a few notes from a new mandolin!
