On September 13, 2013 Antje Duvekot wrote on her Facebookpage:

"Plan was to walk around the pond - or - in case of rain - eating and shopping. then we figured out we could do all three! Happy girl time with meg."

I am glad they recorded also another John Gorka cover. This time "Gypsy life" . Antje also played this song in Amsterdam (May 16, 2013)

Meg Hutchinson with John Gorka -
"See me Now"

Live at Soul Acoustic Caffeebar in Tusla on February 12, 2011
Recorded by Mark Estes







I can recommend Antje Duvekot her latest CD's 'Big Dream Boulevard' (released in 2006) and 'The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer'. John Gorka is singing harmony vocals on three tracks. (released in 2009).

Meg Hutchinson her latest two CD's 'Come Up Full' (2008) and 'The Living Side (2010)' were released on Red House Records, and I think they are wonderful!

Winterbloom released an 8-song EP entitled "Winterbloom: Traditions Rearranged" which received major media attention. On the album (and in the show) they perform new arrangements of traditional holiday songs alongside their own originals and special winter/holiday songs they wrote just for this project.

plus my thoughts on dreams (not the sleeping kind)


On many nights my work is just a job like any other, i won't lie. but then there are the other kind of nights..... the nights that i wish i could beam back to my younger self. to the girl who spent long summers dreaming, guitar in hand and with all her heart. the strongest dreams, i believe, begin in our youth. but they come true throughout our lives. when they do, we can't linger on their summit. when a dream finally comes true, it also dies a little. like a shooting star that only you saw, so brilliant and so mortal. truly beautiful things don't last. but they come back around...

when i was 17 i was lost. things were strange at home. things were strange at school. having grown up in germany, i was now going to high school in greenville, delaware. i couldn't make sense of the kids at school. their behaviors seemed impossible to decode. in germany i was normal. i knew what i was doing. now i didn't. i longed for my language and my culture and my friends from before. things were strange at home, too. so i lived in between. in the space between home and school. i walked and i walked around the suburbs. my discman taking me far away. i listened to the music of john gorka. i can't say i understood the lyrics, really, but i understood the voice. his warm baritone wrapped itself around me like a shield. i'm not sure how i would have made it through those years without that shield. fast forward 20 years. i am on tour with john gorka, the man. he is just a man. it is just a gig. he does what i do for a living and i know - as i am an insider - that there is no real magic there. i know all this but my heart says otherwise.

i have come full-circle. the music is still here. after all these years. and it moves me deeply still because it is intertwined with my own past and the


John Gorka's Mother's Day Concert (with Antje Duvekot).
May 13, 2012 in Bethlehem, PA

genesis of my dream. john gorka has come full circle too. we are playing at Godfrey Daniels, Gorka's stomping ground. the place where he cut his teeth. where he had his heroes. and so it goes. i am not sure any of us would be doing what we do if it weren't for our heroes and the gifts they gave us. this is my "full circle moment" but it is not that of the crowd and so i aim to conceal the monumental weight this event holds in my heart, but on the inside me, old me, present me, myself and i are beaming... maybe you can spot it on our face :) .
