Adler & Hearne: HOME

Welcome to the online home of Adler & Hearne and Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm! (updated June 12, 2018)

This photo of yours trulies is by the awesome Francesco Silvestri, and was taken of us sitting on the front steps of the Chapel at Geneva Point Center in Moultonborough, NH where we are part of the loving community known simply as Camp Winni in its 102nd year! (First week of August each year -- come on -- meet us there in 2018. We'll be teaching a songwriting class!)

 

Summer approacheth. YEOW!!!

CALENDAR NOTE: NEW CALENDAR DATES POSTING THIS WEEK!!! Check back SOON. We are working at booking gigs 24/7 at this point, dear friends. Giving it our best to catch up following four amazing and BLESSED months of caring for Lynn's parents in Carthage, MO and helping them settle into their new Assisted Living life, clearing out their home of 41 years, AND as of Tuesday, June 6 turning the keys over to the new owners! 

And we're enjoying some beautiful days here on the song farm as we gear up with all the behind-the-scenes frenzy that keeps these two folkies working and on the road to a listening room near YOU.

There are exciting NEW projects on the horizon. Come back soon for an update on a new children's project, a Texas Songs project, and a new 'His & Hers' double CD of solo work from Lynn and Lindy. At least, that's we think it wants to be! 


Looking back...reflections from the road. 

WE MADE IT TO SOME FAST UP-AND-BACK APRIL 26 & 27 GIGS in Fayetteville and Siloam Springs, AR! EMILY KAITZ joined us on stage for our cozy "GOOD MEDICINE" house concert show in Fayetteville. And then there was our noon show on Friday, April 27 for the awesome 44th ANNUAL DOGWOOD FESTIVAL in soulful Siloam Springs, AR. A fast and fun mini-tour run.

What other kinds of gigs have we been up to lately...? On the weekend of April 14-15 we enjoyed performances in Gainesville, TX (a private house concert, and three Sunday a.m. church services). On March 2 we had the pleasure of opening for The Bill Hearne Trio at Winnsboro Center for the Arts. It's always a delight to get some quality time with Lindy's newly discovered Hearne cousins (Bill and Michael and all)!

In October we enjoyed a short two-week concert tour up to the beautiful Midwest, followed by our November 11 concert at our hometown's Winnsboro Center for the Arts with special guests Emily Kaitz, Drew Pierce and Kate Hearne!

We celebrated autumn's actual arrival in New Orleans, though it wasn't quite fallish weather yet. Before that, we had just returned home to TX from a two-week concert tour over to Amarillo (TX), and Santa Fe, Questa and Taos (NM). With the icing on the cake being our performance at Michael Hearne's 15th Annual Big Barn Dance Music Festival in Taos.

And well, before THAT (we were home a whole five days), we had just returned from a six-week concert tour that took us to MO, IL, MI, PA, NY, NH, MA, ME and CT. We played so many soulful listening rooms along the way, including house concerts and Sunday a.m. church services. And our beloved Camp Winni at Geneva Point Center on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, NH, where we taught two Breakthrough Songwriting classes each morning of camp. Wonderful memories all.

But as we said above, we've also had our share of time away from music making taking care of our own health, as well as attending to those we love. Our days at home off the road are times to recharge and restore and reflect too. So important.

We hope you too are finding time for that important aspect of living your dreams, and being in community with family and friends.

We LOVE hearing from you -- especially when you want us to come sing at your venue, home, community, church, special event, etc. And remember: we're on the Texas Touring Roster of the Texas Commission on the Arts. That means if you represent a public school, library, municipality or not-for-profit organization in Texas -- you can apply to the TCA for what's called Performance Support (grant dollars -- up to 50 percent of our fee).

EXCITING NEWS ABOUT ADLER & HEARNE BEING A PART OF THE AWESOME "HEARNE FAMILY ALBUM": This past year, thanks to the awesome family tree research provided by Lindy's sister Joan Hearne Thompson -- we were delighted to confirm the long-suspected, family-tree connection between Lindy, Michael Hearne and Bill Hearne.

Next thing we knew, Michael was extending the invitation to Lindy to contribute a song or two to the long-awaited HEARNE FAMILY ALBUM recording now in the works.

The two songs of ours featured on the recording are "Salty Town" co-written by Lindy Hearne and our daughter Kate Hearne, from our CD "Second Nature." And Lindy's song "When They Sing" from our latest double CD "Simpatico."

Wouldn't you like to add the HEARNE FAMILY ALBUM to your collection of Adler & Hearne CDs?!?!

Here's the link to Howlin' Dog Records where you'll soon be able to order the CD. Or email us directly with your order, and we'll ship one to you!
