I am blown away with the news that I have been selected as a Formal Showcase Artist for the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, 2012! Just last year I was diving in the deep end and running my own guerrilla showcase at my very first NERFA! How cool is that?
I have also been gratefully busy with my beloved Chicks and the Joni Mitchell Blue tribute, playing World Cafe Live in Philly to standing room only, girls. Oh yes. We rock the house, and we have a blast with the support of our favorite roosters.
Amy Speace with be covering one of my newer, as yet unrecorded songs, "Stark as Stone", on her upcoming CD! It's really exciting to be covered by someone of her stature. She is a beautiful singer and songwriter, and she has really established herself as a woman to be reckoned with in the folk world. Thanks, Amy!
I've been selected as an emerging artist this year, and it's totally awesome. Thanks to the judges. It feels like a big leap. Last year was my first time going to Falcon Ridge, playing with my peeps at Tribes Hill and Pirate Camp, and listening to my friends who were emerging. I feel lucky and so happy to be included like Oliver with the Artful Dodger and his band of pick-pockets. Consider yourself one of us! Don't mind if I do.
There are 24 fine artists/acts all together and they include my talented and friendly friends, The YaYas and Gathering Time. Go team!
Should be a fun festival all around if it is anything like last year.
By the way, I had a fabulous time June 2nd at the NERFA one-day conference held in Boston where I got a standing ovation with my set. I know I'm bragging, but it was pretty cool, and such a great opportunity for to be seen and to make connections with presenters and fellow musicians.
Okay, enough about me. Let's talk about you. What do you think of me?
Seriously, I hope you are well and keeping up with the ever-changing weather we're having. Who knows what a season is anymore. I'm just glad it's warm.
Love and hugs,
I'm tickled pick to have been selected for an official showcase at this years Southeast Regional Folk Alliance conference in North Carolina. I will be in the company of many talented artists officially and otherwise!
