Hello there, & Happy Spring!
You know, I’m still a little tired from SXSW. It was an absolute whirlwind blast~ I had some luck when a reporter from The Washington Post happened to be at my show because he came early to see Chicago’s Ryley Walker (he is awesome, if you like Bert Jansch, & if you are reading this, I bet you do) & then got me, as a surprise.
He posted about it on Instagram as TJOGTE (the joy of getting there early) & in a wonderful
boost for me, listed me #12 out of 40 acts he saw, ranked & reviewed in haiku form in The Washington Post.
Here is the link if you want to read-
My haiku was:
“A delicate touch
is a valuable asset
in this noisy world”.
More stories are on my blog if you are interested
& if you’d like to see some pictures, they are here on
& HUGE THANKS to the kind souls who helped me on my journey with donations to my SXSW fund.
Thank you so very kindly, it was an enormous help.
