Hi Mundotish Friends,
If you’ve tried to visit mundotish.com you’ve noticed the website has been down. You also may be concerned that this coincides with a recent sudden illness and surgery that was announced on Facebook. In case you were worried, these two events are not related. Just bad timing- as both sudden illness and website shutting down never choose a good time.
The website: There was a problem with the original set up of mundotish from 1997 that was going to pop up one day, which did recently. It is not a simple process to fix and the site will be down a bit longer. However, my sharp team of problem solvers at the website – actually, a department of one genius member – Jacob – has figured a way around the problem for the time being. The domain name tishhinojosa.com and tish.com will be the replacement website names for the time being. FYI: Since I own all the three domain names, you can always find me through tish.com and tishhinojosa.com anyway. I might mention here a comment about my Facebook; facebook.com/mundotish is the official fan page. This is the page that posts upcoming dates, news and where I can connect with more fans! So please, “like” my official fan page as soon as you can, so we can all be on the “same page.”
Now that this has turned into more of a Tish Note, I’ll fill you in on my recent health scare. Back in August, thankfully just after my daughter’s lovely wedding, I had to go to an emergency room with terrible stomach pain and nausea. I had never experienced anything like this so it was also frightening. It ends up that scar tissue from my terrible operating room abdomen surgery debacle of 2015 caused a major intestinal obstruction, which required abdominal surgery again. Although it was a painful and long hospital stay, I am recovering well and getting stronger daily.
I once again had to cancel some performance dates, and take time off to recover, but I hope to re-book those dates. I was able to perform again in Texas and locally last weekend. I’ll soon be hitting the road again! I’ll be playing in Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado just in time for a beautiful autumn drive through the desert and mountains. Please check my schedule for these interesting shows. In November, I will make a short visit to play Club Passim in Cambridge, MA and Rockwood Music Hall in NYC and I’ll be attending and showcasing at the North East Folk Alliance conference in Stamford, CT. After all that travel, I’ll look forward settling home into a San Antonio and Austin Christmas with a few local shows.
Because of my health setback, I had to put recording projects on hold this fall. I am very excited to announce that there will be a re-recorded release of my 1989 Album Homeland, in late 2016 or early 2017. I’m working on a new Spanish record and a country record I hope to have released in 2017/2018. I am also planning a far west and mid-west U.S. tour, a European tour, and hopefully a concert in Korea in 2017.
We will be setting up a crowd funder to help us get the Homeland record finished. I will be announcing it very soon. I hope you will consider donating. The donation perks will be very creative, personal, and interesting. I believe you will find it fun to help fund!
Thanks very much for the well wishes and get well cards I received through my illness. They are so special to me and have really helped lift my spirits. I send a big hug and loads of appreciation for your continued support. I hope to see you at an upcoming show!
