This website introduces performances by husband-and-wife team, Gary
Blanchard and Carol Mays. Based partly on Carol's book, Uplifting Poems, and Gary's companion CD, Uplifting Songs, these programs
weave together live music and poetry, with the aim of mitigating the stress and negative images which abound in our culture.
The book, the music, and the programs are full of beautiful, meaningful, positive, and even magical ideas and impressions.
Poems by classical poets are included, as well as Carol's own works. Programs are held at libraries, senior centers, private
homes, and other venues.
