Life on the Road

I am writing you from The Sentient Bean in Savannah, Georgia.  I feel like I am on  Cloud 9 and angels are surrounding me on this solo tour.  Charleston, SC was amazing.  The Awendaw Green Folks were such gracious hosts.  The Barn Jam on Wednesday night was off the hook.  All the folks there were sooo nice and the musicians were amazing.  I played in between the sets.  So, after the gig I went and stayed at my friend Noodle and Eden’s house and realized that I forgot my fiddle backstage at the Barn Jam.  Too funny.  I NEED A ROAD MANAGER….  Ha ha.  This fiddle girl, just needs to tighten it up a bit.  Luckily, Noodle drove me the 36 mile round trip to retrieve my fiddle.

Resting after a picnic

Thursday I spent the whole day on the beach doing yoga and playing a concert for the Seagulls.  It was sunny and windy as heck.  Gotta love it.  I just bundled up in my blanket and put my toes in the sand.   Later that day I had a picnic.  I am extremely addicted and obsessed with picnics.   I look forward to the occasions of dining outside with my blankie and my delicious treats.

Zesty orange picnic deliciuosness

The Hippodrome Concert that the Awendaw Folks put on was incredible.   It was held at the Imax theatre right next to the South Carolina aquarium.  BMW designed the turquoise theatre seats at 1500 dollars(someone told me this) a pop.   It was a singer/songwriter in the round thingy that included myself with Danielle Howle, Bret Mosley and Carey Murdoc.   These are my new friends.  Also, Noodle and Eden’s band the V-Tones, rocked my face off.  They had swing dancers and LED Light hula hoopers on stage.  It was awesome.   I have to say I really got stage fright this night, but I loved the challenge. It was just me, performing from my soul and heart to a huge venue, no band was backing me up.  Just me, myself and my ukulele…….    There has been soooo much support from all the people that I have come across on my pathway.

After the show I got to stay in the most luxurious pad.  Thanks sweet Amanda and Tasha.  You rule….. I was able to regroup and get a good nights rest and I cleaned my tour vehicle out.

This has been tooo much fun.   I do have to admit though that its a bit lonely and hard to do by myself, but I am loving life and living every single day to the fullest.  I am finding my bliss.   So I leave this with you…………………   Find your Bliss………..


Laisses Les Bon Temps Roulez

Let the good times roll.  It Mardi Gras and my town really knows how to party.  I felt so honored and blessed that my band Snake Oil Medicine Show got to play on Bacchus Sunday in Asheville.  I woke up early morning to play for King Hobbit and Queen Tamra’s wedding.  Everyone was dressed up in the most amazing costumes and the wedding cake was fabulous.

I took this photo of Hobbit and Tamra on my iphone

Although, it was freezing cold and raining outside, the parade went on right after the wedding ceremony.  While that was happening, Snake Oil Medicine Show set up our sound system and got prepared for the throngs of costumed party parade folks at the Pack Tavern, Century Room.

Lisa Lee made this whole royal wedding outfit by herself. Sooo clever

The night was sooo magical.  We had so much fun performing.  The room was soo crowded, someone told me that they were about at capacity at 750 people or more, so who knows.  It was fantastic.

Jim was one of the wedding attendants

Some highlights for me was the dance troups that performed.  The floors were shaking.  The Biggest Highlight for me was when King Hobbit got up on stage and read out a poem, “If I could be King for the Day, I would get married to my best friend, If I could be King of the Day, I would have all my friends get dressed up and parade around town, If I could be King of the Day, I would have Snake Oil Medicine Show play at the Ball……………”

awesome wedding cake with cool bling rings on it

One of the top best days ever for me.  I just had a blast and am sooo proud of my town Asheville.  We are colorful, loving, creative, artsy folks that love to get together and celebrate life.

I Get to Live Another Day to its Fullest

Heather took this pic of me in a restaurant in Boone last week called Proper.

I slept like a million bucks last night.  Like a happy bear in hibernation.  I am awake and alive this morning and what a blessing that is.  I get to make myself coffee, I get to plan my day.  I get a day off today to do whatever I want.  I get to live another day.  Thank you, thank you, thank You…..

I have tons and tons to do to get ready for my Tour Cation.  Tour plus vacation rocks.  I just cannot wait.  I leave in one week, so here it goes, whirl wind of fun.  

I am living my life to the fullest right now.  I got up this morning and read The Daily Love and I want to share some of Mastin Kipps daily affirmation today with you.  

I honor and accept myself as perfect at my core and express that perfection as Love in every moment. 

I believe in my dreams and won’t stop believin. 

I bring to the world what I feel is missing from it.
