An old guy actually won the First Annual New Beginnings–Next Step 5K… (With desperate gasps, this geezer-in-black was heard begging bystanders to tackle his decades-younger challenger during the final mile of the race!)


May 5, 2016

Hi Folks,


Hope you guys are doing well!

First, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Your generous support after my last email has allowed us to reach the challenge grant I wrote to you of back in March! Your support for NB-NS allows me to continue my work to grow this effort to create new paths and possibilities for my guys, and break the cruel cycle of recidivism here in Delaware.

One of our guys – a 30 year-old man who has been out of prison six months – has been working 100 hours a week at his two jobs while also taking classes at a local community college. He recently addressed the question of change saying, “The truth is I changed for the streets! Now, I’m finally taking off the mask and just being myself… being the man I was always meant to be! It feels good!”

I’ll be writing in the coming months to let you know other upcoming fund-raisers for New Beginnings-Next Step, including my annual NB-NS Benefit Concert which will be held at World Café Live at the Queen in Wilmington on August 5th: http://queentickets.worldcafelive.com/event/1174959 . This show will also serve as the official release concert for my new CD Mercy. It will include some special guests and promises to be a lot of fun! Please mark your calendars!

In the meantime there are some other gigs I wanted to catch you up on–––


Tomorrow I’ll be singing at the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Dover: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/delaware-governors-prayer-breakfast-tickets-21460248180


Then this Saturday I’ll be doing a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society:

On May 21st, I’ll be joining my dear friend Sonny in celebrating the music of her brother Phil Ochs at WAMC in Albany, NY. Then I’ll be doing a show at the Library in Middleburgh, New York on May 22nd.

I’ll be closing out the month of May up in Allentown at a great music and arts festival: http://www.mayfairfestival.org/folk-festival-2016/



Information on these and other shows can be found on my web site.

Thanks for all your continued support and energy! ‘Til our paths next cross…

Peace,

John
