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.

Thanks to Hollie Butler for sharing her exquisite new tattoo with us – a Steve Einhorn original. What a beauty!

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

All Day Uke for Intermediate Players!
Saturday, 2/28/2015
10AM to 4PM $60, Lunch Included
Contact & Reservations to Nancy Chesler at vnches@me.com
(Easy access west side home setting)

UKULELE DOJO, Portland OR – Are first-position doldrums setting in? Are you ready to get past first base on the ukulele? Do you want your uke to accompany your singing with style? Do you want to go somewhere new on your fingerboard?

Bust out from simple strumming and move into fingerpicking patterns and rhythms that move with feeling. Take a day with Kate & Steve to learn simple ways to grow your personal uke style. Learn how to find the right key and transpose easily.

The left hand will blaze a new trail up the fingerboard as the right hand works the strings in simple intervals to move with the melody.
Kate & Steve teach uke with tunes and lyrics so be ready to sing and play! Learn how to play well with others and the secret to bringing songs and tunes to life. Kate & Steve will draw from a broad range of music to demonstrate techniques that can be applied across styles. Handouts provided. Recording devices encouraged.

This workshop is appropriate for advanced beginners to intermediate players who are comfortable with first position chords and strumming. Basic picking ability is helpful but not required. Ukulele lovers will come away with skills that enhance solo, duet and ensemble playing.

Collectively, Kate and Steve have boiled more than a hundred years down to a musical roux that offers tasty learning no matter what the mix. Co-creators of the Ukalaliens Songbook and several Homespun DVD’s, find out more about Kate & Steve at http://www.qualityfolk.com.
