Talking to the Moon:
Songs and Stories of Love and Longing

Stacks Image 9
Singer/storyteller Bill Gordh brings kindness and compassion to tunes and tales inspired by his late wife, Jenny. Walking home one evening in 2018, Bill looked up at the moon and Jenny was there, he relates, "shining down on me." That first song, “Moon,” gave rise over the next five years to more than 50 songs exploring love and longing and sweet memories. This concert brings together a number of these tunes along with some folktales that together explore the complex emotions and thoughts that grief prompts in the human heart.

Heavy Lifting

This special event combines an artists’ book, film, poetry, and an opportunity for dialogue and healing in our era of crisis and renewal. The limited-edition artists’ book, Heavy Lifting, showcases works by artist/printer Felicia Rice of Moving Parts Press with poetry by Theresa Whitehill. Printed in an edition of only sixty copies at Felicia’s letterpress studio in Mendocino, the sculptural book extends when open to 14 feet (see photo above).
