"On August 1, 1996, my late partner, Jeffrey Grossi, passed away. There was a day when I was staring into our closetand his sad little green sneakers suggested to me a text, about the day we bought them togetherwhat ended up becoming a cycle of poems, tell the story of that day, and the period after, leading up to his death. They end with mypilgrimage to a place where I had hoped I might find others, who had gone through what I had just gone through, and could empathize." ~ Ricky Ian Gordon
Don't miss this intimate cathartic song cycle that must be experienced by all those who have known love and lost it for whatever the reason.
"A triumph, superb mini-opera and masterpiece." ~ Opera Today

Critically Acclaimed:
"Windfall's 'Green Sneakers' Brings Voice to Sorrow...
Birkett sings well and with passion; one never doubts the sincerity of the bewildered anguish, profound regret and deep love in his voice and on his face." Mike Fischer MJS
