Journal Entry - 6.7.14
In May, I had the pleasure of playing as a featured artist at The Old Cheney Farmers' Market and at Mo Java Cafe in Lincoln, NE. It was great to meet some new faces and try out new material. The weather was perfect and I was even gifted a bag of local pecans by one of the farmers that liked my tunes.
The Mallard Island retreat is just around the corner so I've been busy figuring out exactly what I want to accomplish while on the Island. While I'm up north I will be playing 1 - 3 shows with the amazingly talented and prolific Chris Koza. We have one show booked at The Rainy Lake Community Center on July 18th and are currently looking to lock down a date in Duluth on July 26th and Minneapolis on July 27th. Check back on my website as July approaches for new shows added to the calendar. If any of you have any leads on good shows then please let me know!
As far as the biggest stage I've played from the title of my email... drum roll please.. I'm proud to announce that I will have the honor of taking part in an annual showcase called "Celebrate Nebraska" at Lincoln's most prestigious preforming arts center; The Leid! The press release is officially out so you can see a picture of the stage and read a little about the event here: http://news.unl.edu/newsrooms/unltoday/article/lied-center-selects-artists-for-celebrate-nebraska/
