Man - I need to do a better job of updating this
section LOL! Well - let's see... I got 2nd place in
the Songwriter Serenade to an AMAZING writer -
Justin Farren - so I didn't mind AT ALL! Y'all should
check him out! But even more importantly - the
weekend and the whole event was just good for
the soul :-) Songwriters and people who love song-
writers and song... are just great people :-)
And then - I did the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk
thing and I hate to sound like a broken record but... it
was CRAZY AWESOME! I didn't get chosen as one of
the 6 "winners" but that was no biggie! The weekend
and the people and the song circles at night... again...
good for the soul!
Made some new fans at both events and picked up
some house concerts and industry friends so I hope
to see y'all out there more soon!!
