Mary Beth with David East at the Black Rose Acoustic Society in Black Forest, Co

(Evie Laden and KeithTerry Headliners)

 

Hello friends,

 

What a week it has been for the people of Boston, the surrounding communities and Texas!  We have been engrossed in the news, Tweets, and public radio,  walking this journey with you.  It has taken me this time to try to get my head around the events of last week, knowing the healing for so many people will be ongoing. 

At last, I am left with a feeling of gratitude for today and the health and ability to give back something tomorrow.

 

Musically, things are going really well with radio play charting number 4 the first week in April and 30th for the month on APD Americana charts as well maintaining a presence on Americana and folk and public radio.

 

Trivia question of the month:

What do Pete Seeger, Si Kahn, Jens Kruger and Stephen Lee Rich have in common?

  Musicians United To Protect Bristol Bay  www.musiciansunited.org.  For all you salmon lovers, I encourage you to read about this organization, consider joining their efforts to protect the waters of the Bristol Bay of Alaska, one of the richest wild fisheries remaining in the world for sockeye salmon.  If you go to the member gallery page, check out the You Tube video of my song  'Land of the Midnight Sun' .  I was honored to be asked to have it included on their site! Thanks Si and Stephen.

 

In addition we have had some fun local shows the past 2 months.

Jeff and I would like to  thank David East  for playing the last several gigs with me and I look forward to more.  He can be seen, and heard, playing  a variety of music with several artists and groups here in the Denver area.

In March we had a Swallow Hill cafe show with the very talented Anna Leavitt on Cello and Cathey Stamps on percussion. Both ladies are busy mothers, and musicians.Cathey is a life coach, and marketing consultant from Nashville, TN now living in my neighborhood! It really is a small world!
