    Re: Creating Community in the age of COVID-19
    We may be alone, but we're still in this together.
    Because we care about each other, we are now having to keep our distance. This profound disconnect feels particularly painful because nothing can replace the comfort of the human touch. The world sure feels upside down when what should heal and soothe us can end up harming us instead.

    Here's hoping that this note finds you, and those dear to you, well and safe. These times will be remembered for many things, including a tremendous loss of revered elders and watershed changes in how we go about our lives, now and in the "PV" time - post-vaccine. While some

    Hello, friends!

    Wow. Since last I wrote you, so much has changed.

    I played two wonderful shows the first weekend in March for gracious, beautiful music lovers, and somehow managed not to touch not a single one of them. We were a jittery bunch of humans for sure, but the music seemed a sweet balm for performers and audience alike.

    I thought I'd begin with an amusing quarantine story.

    Howdy Lubec and hope this finds you all well amidst this chaos. I’ve been doing some online concerts due to the fact that, like many, I’m not doing public gigs. This is a weekly series called In Musicorum Veritas, a term I coined meaning In Music Lies Truth. I’m posting parts 1 & 2 and you can join me live at

    Hi Folks,

    Welcome to the new-ish – getting old quickly – normal. There is still not much information regarding rescheduling shows. I’ll keep you updated as I find out. You can always look at RodPicott.com which stays updated fairly often. It is possible that shows will not resume until 2021.

    Double Americana is still happening right here every Wednesday during quarantine at 12EST.

    We will continue doing Rumbly Tummy Livestream at least til April 30 every Saturday at 12EST.

Just a few days later, though, things began to get serious. New York City schools closed. I cancelled nine shows. Grocery shopping became an anxious adventure. My beloved yoga studio closed its doors. People I love became ill. People I don't know, but who were loved by others, died.

Things are scary for everyone right now, I know. I feel helpless staying at home, but I know that's the best course of action.

But good things are happening here. I bake bread. I practice yoga. I play games and watch movies with my family. I have long, rambling phone conversations with loved ones. And perhaps best of all, I continue to use my home recording equipment. Here are a few of the projects I've been working on:

  • My friend Neale Eckstein put together a virtual jam session with a zillion fabulous folkies (including my sweet husband) that I'm thrilled to be part of: 
  • I made a new YouTube playlist of songs I've been recording in different rooms of my house and sharing on Facebook just to keep my spirits up:
  • Tomorrow -- Friday, April 10 -- I'll be featured on Ron Olesko's Folk Music Notebook as part of the "Shelter in Place" series. Catch me doing a 15-minute set from my home studio at 12 noon, 3PM, 1AM, and 3AM here: 

It is my sincerest wish that you and all those you love remain safe and healthy. Please take good care of yourselves -- body, mind, and spirit -- and make sure plenty of good music is a part of your plan for that. I am confident that we will meet again on the other side of all this. Until then, may you know
