Merry Christmas to all and a prosperous New Year !! I have played my last gig of the year and as per the last few will take the month of January off to write and record and also work on my painting chops. Merlin and i wish you all well from here at the treehouse !!! There is snow on the ground tho a bit warmer today. I will have a fun facetime call with my sisters and cousins on monday and a fairly quiet christmas week with a few friends and good food and music. This yesr has been a very good one with the success of the CD and great trip to Texas and Iowa. A great big thanks to the wonderful group of musicians that played with me on the CD and all the support that i have had from the Folk and Roots DJ's. I will continue to play live but the buisness is harder and harder and i am finding more joy in recording tho playing for people is really my first love. I want to say a particular thanks to these DJ's here in the States that helped me get some visibiity that i intend to build on in the coming years.
