Susan Blake, coordinator of Peacesmith’s events, passed away on October 2nd. Susan was a moving force in the peace and environmental scene, and welcomed poets to many Peacesmith events.

Don’t forget to check with the venues for changes and my mistakes.  The order is as well as I could do it with the time I have.I have tried to include all the venues, but could not do restaurants or bars and most of the Libraries. Most Libraries have free concerts. Check, and if they don’t have Folk Music on the calendar, ask them about getting some next year.
