We're still Adler & Hearne crooning our tunes and with an exciting new recording project planned for release in 2024, but we're taking a true summer ‘vacation’ to devote to our new baby – the Song Farm Guesthouse. Our listing is on Airbnb, and our VRBO listing will be complete soon. We've heard from so many of you through the years that you'd love to experience the vibrant arts hamlet of Winnsboro, TX and to visit our home at the banks of Goolsby's Pool.
Now you can actually book a stay at our guesthouse just up the trail from our cabin home. We've got it all ready for you, and we hope you'll book a stay here one of these days soon. As newbies on Airbnb, we are in serious need for REVIEWS so more folks will find their way here.
Coming for a stay is a great way you can support us in our music making on the planet. Plus, we know you'll love our town and the peaceful vibe here in our woods.
Here are a few pics of what you'll find on our Airbnb listing:

Oh yeah, and we did this.
As a couple whose journey began in friendship in 1979 in Nashville, in 2019 we decided to put the bow on our relationship get officially hitched. In a quiet tiny wedding officiated by two dear friends at our song farm home we tied the knot on November 20, 2019.
We continue to make music in the world as Adler & Hearne (our professional name for 20 years). Following our calling to make music together for our living has not always been the easiest choice, but most definitely the right one. The warm and wide circle of friendships we've made along the way certainly has brought much love, spirit and meaning to our life together.
Thank you from the heart to our family and friends for your encouragement, love and support through the years.
For those of you we've not seen in too long (which is most everybody, following the past two-plus years of craziness), we'd love our paths to cross soon.
REFLECTING EVEN FARTHER BACK
On October 27, 2019 we played the soulful Harmony House concert series at Wildscape Acres north of Bonham, TX at the home of hosts Faye Wedell and Scott Lipsett. It was a gorgeous fall Sunday afternoon, and we were so pleased to have a houseful of friends in attendance. And what SINGERS they were!!!
On September 14-26, 2019 we journeyed to New England and back, visiting dear friends and family and playing a handful of choice house concert gatherings in PA and CT, including the awesome Trinity Church on the Green Coffeehouse Concert and Sunday morning church service, which is always so beautiful and touching.
On September 4-10, 2019 we enjoyed a few days out to Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance in Taos, NM. En route to and from we played concerts in Amarillo, TX (at Chalice Abbey) and Moriarty, NM (a lovely house concert series there). It was also very special to be brought up on stage a couple of times during the Big Barn Dance 'love fest.' Always good medicine there.
On August 29, 2019 we returned home from a four-day Artist-In-Residency in Coffeyville, KS for the community's Humanities Project. We gave 17 performances over the four days -- at the community college and many nursing homes, including five programs for the high school in nearby Caney, KS. Oh yeah, and a house concert on our way back home to TX!
On Sunday, May 5, 2019, we wrapped up our delightful two-week High Plains Public Radio Music Ambassador Tour. Hats off to High Plains Public Radio and all our gracious concert hosts and helpers along the way. It was an amazing journey, and we made wonderful new friends in the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles (Perkins, OK too at dear friend Monica Taylor's sweet house concert gathering!!), and all up and down Western Kansas. The High Plains rock, and we encourage you all to put that region on your bucket list.
Our Fall 2018 month-long tour took us on another full sweep to the Upper Midwest down through Tennessee, over to South Carolina and back across the Gulf Coast states to Home Sweet Texas. and our Summer 2018 tour took us from the upper east side of Texas to Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana.
REMEMBER: ADLER & HEARNE ARE ON THE TEXAS TOURING ROSTER!!!
Since 2014, the Texas Commission on the Arts has continually honored Adler & Hearne with a spot on its Texas Touring Roster as official Texas Touring Artists of the State. It's a rigorous application process, and we're grateful to remain on the roster for another two-year term August 2022 to August 2024. NOTE: 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 that will cover up to 50 percent of Adler & Hearne's concert fee.
