Hope this finds you happy and
well. It's been a minute since we've caught up.
We've played some great shows
and crossed many miles over the past few months. Took a two week run for shows on
the West Coast and found a desert hideaway out in Joshua Tree, California
to unplug, connect with the powers that be, write, dream, work, watch jackrabbits
and the infinite diamond shining night sky. I met some cowboys, some hip LA
kids, some renegades, plain old fashioned earth loving hippies, a widower, a smooth
talker, and many new friends. These experiences and new lives unfolded are
working their way into music like never before. The journey is the destination,
indeed. Back at home, we've been plugging away at new songs at Piety
Street Studios and I even had the great pleasure of making a debut at the
world-renonwned Preservation Hall here in New Orleans.
NYC, FESTIVALS & HOUSE CONCERTS
At the start of April, I'll
be returning to NYC for a show on April 9th at
the Living Room, along with my friend, NYC native and bad-ass
chanteuse, Julia Haltigan. Save the date
on that one. As soon as I'm back to New Orleans, we are gearing up for festival
season with band performances at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival,
French Quarter Festival and others. We're excited to annouce that
this year marks our THIRD ANNUAL house concert series we have been hosting around
our big festival shows.
SPEAKEASY PRESENTS: FQ FESTIVAL SERIES
KRISTIN DIABLE HOUSE CONCERT,
RECEPTION & DINNER
APRIL 14, 2013 // 7pm
INFORMATION & TICKETING: http://kdfqfest2013.eventbrite.com
This year's event will be held at my home in New Orlean's Bywater neighborhood.
The night will of course feature an intimate listening room environment, as well
as dinner and drinks by Saint Lawrence Restaurant and an exclusive one-of-a-kind
recording of the night's show to take home with you. The house concerts have
been such a delightful way to connect with like minded friends who value great experiences,
great conversations, great music and all else. Looking forward to this very
special night. *** We are limited to 25 seats for the night and only have
about half of those still available. Please be sure to purchase your tickets
in advance HERE.
Very excited to make it to EUROPE this
summer for shows and adventures in many new places. So far the line-up includes
Denmark, Sweden, N. Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, France, UK and Ireland.
It's a big trip and we'll need plenty of friends to guide us along the way.
If we'll be passing through your area, please do get in touch. On dates
we don't have venue or festival shows, we'd love to set up house concerts as time
allows. Connect: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Music has been my lifelong,
most insightful friend in this adventure of life. It has always directed me toward
the light and toward the people and experiences that keep me waking up with an insatiable
thirst for each new day to unfold. It is the true communication of the spirit, a
grand communion of all life, past, present, future. I am a solitary creature by
nature, but in sound and song, I’ve been saved, it has unlocked the door of
insight to the eternal connection we all have, regardless of the physical bodies
in our presence..... " Read full blog HERE.
