Wooden Stick Lacrosse Expo, Oneida Wisconsin

When thinking about the changes that have occurred over the years, some that matter greatly others not at all most lacrosse players wouldn't think much about the change from wooden lacrosse sticks to aluminum. Except that they hurt less when they get hit with them. But somehow I think that the player who knows how the hickory rolls in their hand, how over time the stick becomes a part of them, alive and powerful in every movement throughout the game it is a substance of the game that is now missed. Although a titanium or aluminum stick does the job--it's just not the same. Someday each step that is taken to build a lacrosse stick from choosing the tree to tying the last knot in the lacing may be forgotten unless we continue to teach and practice the making. For the magic is in the making as much as it is in the hands of a gifted player.

New CD "Too Long Away"

Happy New Year! Exciting news! My newest CD "Too Long Away" is ready for release on the Music Masters label partnered with Awake Now Records (U.S.) Promotional tour dates are being set up as we speak and will be uploaded as they are confirmed. As the title says, I've been too long away from my fans (for personal reasons) and am looking forward to seeing you out there at one of my performances. In the meantime, look for the television premier of "Kissed by Lightning" (Shelley Niro-Turtle Night Productions) on TMN (The Movie Network) in February soon to be followed by another broadcast on APTN. Music by ElizaBeth Hill, the soundtrack is a collection of works created and performed by lil' ole me, plus super talented artists such as blues vocal virtuoso Faron Johns, traditional Iroquoian singer Sadie Buck, and the late and much lamented violinist Oliver Schroer.
