Almost time to wrap up August in a faded ribbon and tuck it away with other cherished memories. MY road trip through NC, VA, and MD was laced with old and freshly-made friends, and the joy of singing for and with them. Thank you Skip Staples, Ashleigh & Derek, and Cinda & Gary for making my travels and shows delight after delight. I may have brought music to your audiences but you have made my heart sing.
The bounty continues with two last August shows at two classic local music venues, the 8/22 show at the Nightlight and the 8/29 show at the Blue Note Grill. And no slouching into September, three first time local gigs: the Kraken, Lucky 32 in Greensboro, and my first solo set at the wonderful Carrboro Music Festival.
The best part of all of these gigs: getting to play and sing with some of my local heroes and dearly loved musicians: Isabel Taylor, Barry Gray, Danny Gotham, Doug Baker, Lisa Rhodes, Rebecca Newton, Nancy Middleton, Karyn Oliver, and Mary Johnson Rockers. It's gonna be good :-)
