Berklee @ Kerrville Folk Fest!

YEEEHAWWW.  I’m in Texas!  This is my first time and I am loving it.  Earlier this year, I submitted to the Kerrville Folk Festival’s ‘New Folk Competition’.  Out of 800+ applicants, 32 artists are chosen to play for 3 judges and a LOT of music loving, friendly folkies.  I am very honored to be amongst so many talented New Folk finalists.  Today, the first 16 artists played.  Tomorrow the next 16 play and then the judges choose 6 finalists to come back and play next weekend.

Kennedy Center wrap up…

Hey y’all!

(Yes… I’m from PA but I’m currently in Texas so the y’all thing is working at the moment!)  🙂

The Berklee trip to DC was a total success!!  What an honor to be a part of the Conservatory Project at the Kennedy Center.  I am so grateful for the Berklee faculty for putting such a great trip together.

On Thursday afternoon, Johnny, Rob Hayes and I went to the Voice of America.  It was soooo cool.  Doug Levine hosts his own radio show and invited us in for an interview.  Johnny and I really enjoyed talking with him.  That was our first time ON AIR together. 🙂  The interview is going to be translated into several different languages and broadcasted across the world.  How exciting is that?!
