Music is powerful. It has the power to make us laugh, cry, dance, and drive faster. It also has the power to make us think, ask questions, and challenge authority. Music can take you back to an easier time in your life, or help you through the challenges you are facing right now. Music can be “of the moment” or “timeless,” but no matter what kind of music you enjoy, music can be healing and inspiring.

Autumn has arrived and as the leaves fall from the trees, it’s time to celebrate Samhain, or All Hallow’s Eve. Halloween may look a bit different this year without hoards of kids out trick-or-treating, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy some spooky, mystical tunes, dancing in the moonlight in your own backyard. The world’s a scary place right now, so let’s make sure that the music matches the mood.
