It's been a busy and rocky spring.
Major medical issues, a death in the family, a child in trouble with the law, musical success, musical frustration, garden growing ok, tomatoes beaten up by wind storms and hail. Sigh.
The days are getting longer, the nights warmer and, I hope, the rest of life is settling down a bit.
We recorded a cd, made the first BIG cut to play at Lilith Fest and are booking some out of town gigs for the summer and fall. Have a regular twice weekly gig at the airport (that is it's own story).
Next big project: Heart Beat - an all female singer/songwriter/musician concert to benefit the American Heart Association set for July 23rd. Getting the line up composed, working on the ad/psa video, press releases and looking for a local female celebrity to act as MC.
July 24 we are running the main stage for a local street festival and booking bands for the parade, teaching music lessons and have the Great Hall that evening. It's gonna be a full weekend folks but good!
Exposing a few of my more experienced students to Finale Notepad as a practical application to music theory. Getting some of them ready to play at a fund raising event for Vancouver Clark Parks & Recreation and all for their spring recital. Flutes, pianists and singers!! I am so lucky to have such great students.
Today we have a "food" photo shoot then rushing home to plant potatoes, more lettuce, spinach and some medicinal herbs. I think we're headed to MacAdams Bar & Grill for the songwriters open mic with Lyman Louis - great songwriter and recording engineer- Thanks Lyman!!
It's a typical day on the North Bank for TwoRivers Music.
Note: we, TwoRivers Music, are now individually affiliated with BMI. Eric is endorsed by Timbercreek Guitars and my song "Complicated Life" is still in competition for Lilith.
