I'm hanging on with dear life to summer, but day by day resigning myself that autumn is going to arrive at the end of this week. I hope you'll come out to hang-on with me for one last night this Thursday at Caffe' Vivaldi. It's our penultimate summer evening, and what better way to spend it than at a cozy cafe' in Greenwich Village?
As much as I regret that my beloved season is slipping away, I'm excited to say that lots of wonderful things have been happening! On August 27, I had a terrific time when I co-hosted the Bill Russo show on Centanni Broadcasting. You may hear the archived broadcast at this link:
The Bill Russo Show 8/27/2012 - with Allison Scola, Tyler Hollinger and Christian Keiber; and Rosanna Chiofalo
Bill is a wonderful host, and it was a great thrill to meet author Rosanna Chiofalo and filmmakers/actors/producers Tyler Hollinger and Christian Keiber.
In other news, our Joni Mitchell's Blue 40th Anniversary concert at Philadelphia's World Cafe Live on September 1 was a huge success--a packed house! Thank you to the wonderful audience and to my kindred sisters of Chicks with Dip for this incredible adventure! Don't miss this fabulous show. Check "Shows" (http://www.allisonscola.com/calendar.html
) for upcoming dates near you.
The Midnight Special, a national folk show hosted by Rich Warren played Anna Dagmar and my recording of Joni Mitchell's "This Flight Tonight" last week.

Selling out in Philly and being on The Midnight Special was marvelous for sure, yet I was even more thrilled to hear WFUV's John Platt spin "Marco the Barber" on his Sunday Breakfast on September 16. You can stream the full broadcast at this link:

At Caffe' Vivaldi we'll be performing a couple of new tunes, one of which I wrote after my travels this summer. You may see some of the photos I took that helped inspire the new song at http://allisonscola.tumblr.com
So much to be thankful for, I'm making myself vulnerable and "risking a fall" for fall, I suppose.
