fullsizeoutput_6f17How much are we loving this adventure of ours? THIS MUCH !!!

fullsizeoutput_6e2eI know that we are microscopic little fish in an enormous pond of talent, but it’s an absolute joy to be welcomed into the music and wider community here, and to fulfil some of our dreams. For me, two of those dreams came true during the last week – firstly, to play at the legendary Bluebird Cafe (Alleluiah!), and secondly, to meet some Bison up close. Maybe a bit too close on one occasion…. crawling through a herd of them in a car is nothing like doing the same with cows or sheep! Same with the huge Elk who came bounding towards us purposefully when we were enjoying the evening air in the nature reserve (when the bison were hiding) and reading an info sign. Neil and I were about to bolt back to the car when he decided to stop and stare us out while we slunk back instead πŸ™‚

The next big crowd we weren’t expecting was at the Bluebird, where the queue snaked into the parking lot, and once all of we songwriters were settled they crammed in as many visitors as they could – I can’t express what a joy it was to have the audience at this amazing place clapping along to our song “Nashville”“I’m gonna find my way to Nashville, come knock-knocking at every door, hang out at the Bluebird Cafe, until they shout for more!”

You could be forgiven for thinking I’ve missed my vocation to be an airline hostess – “and the exits are …” πŸ™‚ I’ll post a video snippet next time, meanwhile thank you to Barbara Cloyd (http://www.barbaracloyd.com) for hosting the night at the Bluebird (and signing Neil’s guitar), to all the lovely folks who said hello and said they liked us or showed an interest (hi Lacey!) and to new pal Tim Shean (https://www.herringbonerecords.com) for being so nice, and for letting me hang out with his dog Franklin. I’ve got a lot of interesting encounters to report, including more fab musicians, bar owners and dogs (haha!), but they will just have to wait til next time!
