From the 21034 Community E-News Editors:
Happy New Year
It’s hard to believe, but the 21034 e-Newsletter is entering its 5th year of bringing you news and events from around the Darlington-Dublin community. What started as a conversation among a handful of community members over lunch about how to share information more easily and inexpensively has grown to multiple pages, as well as a Facebook page, includes dozens of contributors and reaches over 400 monthly subscribers. We could use a couple more editors! If you can give an hour or two a month to help go through our email or help assemble the newsletter, please shoot us an email at email@example.com

News from the Deer Creek Coffeehouse
January’s Performer – Zoe Mulford
“I don’t usually like folk music, but that underwear song is pretty good.”
—patron, Taliano’s Restaurant, Takoma Park, MD
On Saturday, January 10 at 7:30 pm Deer Creek Coffeehouse welcomes, Zoe Mulford. A set by American songwriter Zoe Mulford (www.zoemulford.com) is like a small volume of short stories – evocative, beautifully crafted, and endlessly varied. Whether her starting-point is a polar expedition in 1845 or a Greyhound bus ride in 2007, her vivid storytelling and down-to-earth humor take listeners on an enjoyable journey. Her song, “Our Lady of The Highways”, (which I’m sure she’ll play) pays tribute to a landmark on Interstate 95 between Elkton and North East. For historical background check out:
Backing her clear voice with guitar or claw-hammer banjo, Zoe draws on the traditional music of the U.S. and British Isles to make sense of the modern world. In 2006, Zoe’s spouse got a job at the University of Manchester and ever since, Zoe has spent the time getting to know the British folk community while returning periodically to play in the U.S. She is currently in the U.S., based in Swarthmore, PA through summer 2015.
For her work on her second album, Roadside Saints, which contains “Our Lady of the Highways”, Zoe was nominated for Song, Album and Songwriter of the Year by the Washington DC Music Association in 2006. She has been a Kerrville New Folk Finalist (2007) and a Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist (2008). Zoe also won First Place at the 2005 Songwriting Competition at the Susquehanna Music and Arts Festival right here in Darlington.
Deer Creek Coffeehouse is located at 1022 Main St., Darlington, MD

Maryland Faerie Festival New Dates!
The Maryland Faerie Festival is very excited to announce that their new dates for 2015 are June 13th and 14th. Though Mother’s Day weekend was fun for many, there were many more who were unable to come frolic with the Faeries as family obligations pulled them elsewhere. We want everyone to know that we welcome not for profit groups with like minded missions to attend our event and share their mission and activities with the attendees of the Festival and the greater community. Please contact us at www.marylandfaeriefestival.org. If you are looking to set up a booth please apply through vending. If you are a group that does some type of performance or storytelling and you would like to be involved with the festival, please contact us through the entertainment coordinator. We already are proud to have the Harford County Sheriff’s Department Explorer Program parking cars for us, and there are room for many more groups to bring their outreach to better educate the community about what you do. We look forward to seeing you there.
