Though I’m not quite as busy as Canadian Astronaut Chris Hatfield is these days, I do have a lot going on! If you’ve missed the hoopla he’s been generating, join the conversation on social media. Be sure not to miss his version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity, recorded by Commander Hadfield on board the International Space Station. It’s awesome! If you want more of my hoopla, it’s right here:)
Lots going on in the next few weeks and months, including a house concert in Concord, MA, a women’s festival in Virginia, and another week of work in Nashville. And I’m getting ready to finish the CD I started a year ago. I hope to have the finished product available early this fall. I’m almost finished writing the rest of the songs for the project, and I know you’re gonna love them (at least that’s the plan). You can get a ‘Sneak Peak’ of a few of the already recorded songs on my website.
This weekend I’m teaming up with my good friend Chris MacLean to do a show in Concord MA. We might even get a day to hang around in Boston too!
I resently shared the stage with Nashville’s Jon Vezner and Jeff Gilkinson in Shirley MA at the Bull Run Restaurant. It’s quite a treat to be associated with these talented men, and I hope to be dropping their names again from time to time.
Jon Vezner & Jeff Gilkinson | Kerry & Lynne Chater | Nancy & Louisa Branscomb
Nashville is my home away from home. I’ve got all kinds of irons in the fire there, but most importantly, I’ve made lots of friends. Kerry and Lynne Chater are two of the writers that I hook up with often, along with Louisa Branscomb, Robin Grant, Natasha Borzilova and many others. I’m working on a very exciting project with New England Artist Shanna Jackman. Shanna, along with Texan Connie Mimsand myself, have been writing the songs for Shanna’s premier CD. We’ll all be in the studio in Nashville this July to get the album recorded.
Oh, did I mention I have a brand new website? Lots of cool new things for you to see, including aFREE DOWNLOAD of my entire ‘HONESTLY’ cd. There are new performance videos, and a brand new page with video guitar lessons!! I hope you’ll take a minute to check it out and let me know what you think.
Wait, there’s more! I post often on Facebook and once in a while on Twitter. If we’re not friends on social media yet, we can fix that. Please send me your friend request and let’s get to know each other.
That’s it for now. Thank you for reading this email and for taking an interest in my adventures.
