Adler & Hearne: HOME
Welcome to the online home of Adler & Hearne, and Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm! (updated 4-18-2016)
It's a privilege and a joy to make our living through song - and the actual time we get to spend on stage is the icing on the cake! Much of the winter season, we were 'in the kitchen' so to speak -- "Soup's On" and all that (to harken to a favorite original blues song by Lindy Hearne and Lisa Aschmann on our latest CD "Second Nature").
Lo and behold we've stirred up not one, but TWO collections of songs (one with Folk roots; the of a more Spiritual nature), and we're set to record them soon as a double CD celebrating our 15th year of troubadour bliss here at our Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm!!!
Stay tuned for more details, an email blast in the coming days, and a new Kickstarter launch. And please! If you're not on our email list -- hop up there in the Email Sign-Up window of our web site, and let us know how to keep you in our loop.
Stay tuned for details on more new projects unfolding here at the Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm -- and tour news too! Spring touring already has taken us out to the Texas panhandle, New Mexico and Arizona. And this coming weekend we'll be over in Atlanta, GA and Ashland, AL. We're mostly home-based in May and June as we prepare to record. Later in July we launch out on our 2-CD Release Concert Tour up to Northern Michigan and into New England and back through the South -- wrapping up by Labor Day. We'd love to see you along the way!!!
FLOOD NEWS FLASH...as many of you know, we came home from our Christmas journey to Lynn's family in Missouri -- to a FLOOD. Our new spillway is working GREAT, and about to be widened some more just for good measure. We continue to make good progress on the clean-up and preparation for restoring our walls, and putting things back where they belong in our home. It's been a set back, but we are working hard and moving in a good direction. Stay tuned, and thanks for your caring words and loving support through this bump in the road...!
The above poster was created for a benefit concert and silent auction dear friends put together at our Winnsboro Center for the Arts to help us out with flood-related expenses, especially as it relates to land and water management improvements being made here at the song farm -- to help ensure our home is never flooded again.
It's beautiful springtime here in our piney woods, and all sorts of things are about to bloom project wise. In the coming days you'll see more fine shows coming up in our own 'back yard' of Texas, and beyond. We're especially enjoying making new friends in Home Sweet Texas as we proudly wear the badge of official Texas Touring Artists for the Texas Commission on the Arts through August of 2018. Our itinerary has us enjoying more shows closer to our East Texas piney woods home, which of course we really love. (Note: We've had some life distractions of late that have us woefully behind on updating our tour calendar -- so please check back soon for those happy updates!!)
TOURING UPDATE... As we work 24/7 on concert bookings for the coming months, we welcome the opportunity to schedule a last-minute house concert, songwriting workshop or church music-making opportunity in your neck of the woods! Please write to us directly if such ideas call your name: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check our new 'Sunday Mornings' page for more details on how these two organic song farmers plant songs in hearts on Sunday mornings, church coffeehouses on Saturday nights, dinners on the ground, etc!!!
As always, please upcoming concerts, and to see when and where we'll be in the coming days. We'd love to see you there. Always.
ABOVE IS THE COVER ART OF OUR LATEST CD "SECOND NATURE," PRODUCED BY LLOYD MAINES. It was officially released September of 2014, and made the FOLK DJ Top 10 its first month on the charts. This makes us smile. : )
