Will it Christmas?

Hello!  How are you?  I am doing pretty well considering how crazy the last two weeks have been.  The teens have finally settled into a good school routine, I rarely have to ask them to do their chores!  Shocking I know. 

The last few days I've been rehearsing. Yesterday I had a HUGE idea pop into my head, while re-learning how to play Nantucket from my album "Trillium".  YES for REALS!  (I have not played it in a while.)  While playing I got thinking Ohhhh HEYYYY!  - Nantucket would be really COOL to be on the Christmas album!! Why? Check it out... 

In December 1987, I flew to Rhode Island to spend Christmas on Cape Cod.  According to my best friend Catherine, Providence was closer to the Cape than Boston was. 🤔 

My friend's family took me all OVER New England. I was really amazed at how pretty it was and COLD. I LOVED it so much that the seeds were planted to write the song "Nantucket".  You can listen to the Nantucket here, and get your own copy of it too!  Just click on the button below! 

When you do, let me know what you think?! Will it Christmas? Thank you, and have a GREAT weekend!

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
