April/May Events of Cassendre Xavier


I am happy to announce lots of upcoming dates I will be singing! I will also have with me whatever renaissance negresse wares are in stock at the moment, including CDs of music, spoken word and guided meditations, stationery/mail art, chapbooks, and print "renaissance negresse museletters."

I always enjoy meeting folks at these events and perhaps one of them will be you :-)
