I was on my way out the door for a morning exercise walk, but it is chilly, windy and rainy. Sorry to say, but I am a fair weather athlete. I do love weather like this – however, I like it best with my laptop or a good book open, a cup of coffee, and a window open to hear the rain and appreciate my snug blanket. My husband Andreas just arrived in Austin from Germany for a few weeks. Of course, he IS out there for a run around Town Lake. Does this make me feel guilty (as I sip my cinnamon coffee…)? Um, no.
Ok, so, I have been exploring new/old things back in Austin for a while. I have really been enjoying playing music again around town and Texas (and one lovely evening in Norman, Oklahoma!). I have been doing a residency Thursday nights at El Sol y La Luna with my long-time pal Marvin Dykhuis. We are having some nice times playing together again and enjoying some wonderful musician friends who have been dropping by and gracing our show – Chip Dolan, Adam Ahrens, Danny Britt, Hawthorne Bullock, Bluegrass Dave so far. Coming up we will have Rosie Flores and Gina Chavez. I am looking forward to this! Check out my tour page for details. Or “like” my Facebook page, so you get updates on all dates.
One great thing that has occurred is that I have had a chance to listen to Marvin and Chip’s beautiful newest songs. I hope to record some of these in the future. By the way, come on out to Gruene Hall on Sunday, April 15, and you can hear these songs. Marv, Chip and I will be playing the 5-9 set. I think Darcie Deaville might be joining us too.
It is encouraging to hear good new stuff. I have not been writing a lot on the music front and I hope this will kick me in the butt. I am working on and waiting on the release of my latest CD. Unfortunately, the release time is still vague. That part of the music biz is not that fun. I will keep you posted on that.
I gotta go for now. Thanks for checking in with me. Hope to see you at an upcoming show (or around Town Lake on a sunny day).
Love, abrazos, and muchas gracias!!
