Homegrown and other thoughts

We had a really super show for this year’s Homegrown Music Festival. Despite a late-breaking change of venue we filled the house! It is still surprising to me to discover that we have actual fans. Thanks to all of you who like to hear our music. It is such a sweet experience to get out there, sing our songs, and have people enjoy hearing us. Best part: The audience singing with us.

Thanks go out to the Melissa LaTour and Adam Guggemos from Homegrown and to Josh Stotts from Sir Ben’s for working out our time and place. Oh, and, props to Darin Bergsven for some last minute percussion assistance.

We usually take the summer off, and we’ll wrap up our spring session with a party in a couple of weeks. Always great food at our potlucks, let me tell ya. But, we hope to be doing a little summer school this year, getting into the recording studio with the ambition of releasing an EP sometime later this year. Wish us luck!

I love everything about Sing! and our audiences. It is a great pleasure to have this opportunity to make music and meet people. So glad you could come along for the ride!
