     "You could write a song about some kind of emotional problem you are having, but it would not be a good song, in my eyes, until it went through a period of sensitivity to a moment of clarity. Without that moment of clarity to contribute to the song, it's just complaining."

-- Joni Mitchell

Tom Kimmel

    Tom Kimmel is a singer, songwriter, entertainer, poet, teacher, and more. 

    Jacqueline was fortunate to attend Tom's songwriting workshops in Florida 2 years in a row.  He was awesome - so awesome, in fact. several other instructors came to sit in on his classes to see how he taught.  And now, we are thrilled to announce that he will be conducting a songwriting workshop in the afternoon before his concert.  Whether you are a seasoned or aspiring songwriter, you want this. 

    Since 1980, dozens of Tom’s compositions have been recorded by a host of major artists, including Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Art Garfunkel and Randy Travis. His songs have been featured in films from Twins to Serendipity and Runaway Bride, and in television shows from Captain Kangaroo and Touched By An Angel to Dawson’s Creek.

    An award-winning artist in his own right, he has released seven solo albums, published a book of poems, and led songwriting workshops and classes around the country and in Europe.

     His official bio says nothing about the way Tom plays guitar, but the sweet way he brings emotions out of guitar strings is special and unique.  Trust us, you will also want to join us for the intimate house concert that follows the workshop.   

    Here are some of Tom's songs - and they are wonderful, but even better in person:

Jacqueline at EarthFair

Balboa Park
Jacqueline at EarthFair 2013
    Did you miss when Jacqueline performed at EarthFair 2013? 

    This year's fair is extra-special not just because it is the San Diego EarthFair's 25th Anniversary Celebration, but it is also the Park's 100th birthday. There is still time to volunteer by clicking the link above.

    Jacqueline will host the Magic Stage with "Dr. Wilderness" on the Prado in front of the lily pond. Come by and say hello anytime from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM, or come and watch her perform her original songs at 12:15 PM.


Thank you Nathan Welden!

    Our March 14 Nathan Welden Concert was a smashing success! We had a wonderful turnout of terrific people, great music from Nathan (of course!), and we even got to meet his charming wife and sweet baby girl. Nathan, thank you for a wonderful show and a nice excuse to have fun together.

    We would love to see you at the EarthFair and to welcome you into our home.  We hope to see you at the upcoming workshop and concert!

Al and Jacqueline Jax Silva
