_20150116_36268_TOM PAXTON copy
Tom D’Antoni is a venerable Oregon reporter and founding editor-in-chief of the in-print and online magazine, Oregon Music News. Tom is also the voice and free-wheeling disc jockey behind the KMHD radio program on Friday nights, “I Like It Like That,” where he spins music and musician interviews in the style of a master craftsman, with a dedicated passion for the music – and the stories behind the musicians.

Tom has been following the musical adventures of Kate & Steve for years. Starting with his OPB Artbeat segments (“Artichoke as a Love Story,” followed by OPB’s ghost story by Jeff Douglas of the song “Travis John” that preceded KC Cowan’s segment on the use of “Travis John” for choreographer Josie Moseley’s “Quiet Pieces” staged for Oregon Ballet Theater and danced by Patrick Kilbane. Tom stayed hot on the trail and reported again when Kate & Steve changed tracks to live on the road and tour with a fleet of ukes to convert the uninitiated of America to the joys of playing music.

When Tom first heard that Kate & Steve were coming home to Portland to stay, he texted to ask, “where is the parade going to be?” Since then, Tom has interviewed Kate & Steve twice – one in the early morning hours during home reconstruction a week before moving back, and the other more recent radio interview with Kate solo in “Coffeeshop Conversation #38“.

Tom D’Antoni covers a lot of ground with his provocative line of questions and friendly interest, and we appreciate his help in giving you a glimpse into the life and times – past, present and future – of Kate & Steve, their new band “The Portlanders” and an inside look at life, the people and the music they make from Portland, Oregon.

Special thanks to the one and only Tom D’Antoni, friend and reporter extraordinaire.

Your comments are very welcome. Thanks for reading!

New weekly Uke workshop at Steve & Kate’s
Tuesday evenings starting September 1. Email us to reserve a seat!Uke and Play

 

 

Oregon Music News journalist, Tom D’Antoni wrote us last month to find out when we’re coming home and to ask “Where’s the parade going to be?” Here’s the answer.
Piano Room

It doesn’t get more down home than Kate & Steve singing a new carol in The Quiet American‘s home in Hood River on a winter’s morning before Christmas. Kate Power, Steve Einhorn, Aaron, Henry & Nicole Keim sang Mary’s Baby from the first refrain and captured it here on the wing. Won’t you join us and sing along? (lyrics below) Your comments are most welcome! Please share this song with the ones who harmonize your world.

A newborn Christmas carol for you to sing along with us.

Wishing you peace on earth and goodwill to all, a merry and blessed holiday with heartfelt thanks ~ Kate & Steve

MARY’S BABY
Kate Power ©2014

Chorus
Come sing! Shepherds & kings,
Sing for the babe in the manger.
Peace and joy to bring, and
Bless you wherever you go.

Out in the wood on a wintry night,
The evening star shone so brightly, so bright;
And there in the manger, a baby boy born,
To Mary, a baby was born!

Out on the road, through the desert three kings,
Did ride with their eyes and their senses so keen,
For a sign of the King they were seeking, foreseen,
For a sign of the King forseen.

The cattle and horses, the piggies and sheep
All huddled up close for the Baby to keep,
Swaddled there in the arms of His Mother, asleep;
Swaddled there in her arms asleep.

Bridge
“Mary’s baby!”, the angels sing,
“Mary’s baby!”, Prince of Peace!”

Now Mother and baby are gone long ago,
This story is Older than Older than Old…
Still on every Christmas morning is told,
On Christmas morning is told.

That there in the wood on a wintry night
The evening star shone so brightly, so bright!
And there in a manger a baby boy born
To Mary a baby was born
Chorus

Come sing! Shepherds & kings,
Sing for the babe in the manger.
Peace and joy to bring, and
Bless you wherever you go.

Nice gift for uke friends…

A great gift for someone you’d love to help get past first strum and onto a home run to stylish playing on ukulele…
