Harmony with Flecha Moon
I had the great pleasure this spring of singing with Tribe of Dreams, a traveling band that creates musical community everywhere they go. They left behind, in San Francisco, a wake of connection and increased musical collaboration that is still rippling outward.
One of my fellow transient tribe members has been the ethereal Froukje van der Velde, whose musical name is Flecha Moon. She was in San Francisco for a few months of 2013, and left a huge impression on my Hotel Utah and Sacred Grounds open mic friends. Singing with Froukje has been a pure joy.
Recently, we both sang on a bill at 50 Mason Social House in SF, and I caught some video of us harmonizing. I’ve posted “Driving” and “The Cove” to YouTube, along with Froukje’s song “Ships Go Sailing By.” There’s a particular moment in the middle of “Driving,” when we get rolling on some improv harmonies, that gave me head-to-toe goosebumps. I hope you enjoy these. I sure did.
