A Grand Concert!

On Sunday, October 12th, I gave a concert in Carthage, Missouri as part of their 48th Annual Maple Leaf Festival sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. Carthage is a lovely town with lots of history and if you are into seeing the fall foliage emerge then you should definitely put Carthage on your list of […]

Some lovely press…and what hospice means to me.

I was honored to be featured in two articles that came out in conjunction with the release of my CD “A Priceless Meadow.” Both of the articles focused on my work at Circle of Life Hospice (COL) where I have worked as a volunteer for almost seven years.

People are still commenting to me after […]

It’s a CD Baby! And iTunes!

I started my harp musical career with very low expectations. Would I ever learn a song? Could I ever play at church? Could I ever play in public at all? My track record with public performance as a kid wasn’t great and I wasn’t the best with public speaking so to be where I am […]

CD Launch Party!

A Priceless Meadow – My Debut CD Release!

“Do you have a CD?” That is a question that every musician loves to hear. It is lovely acknowledgement that someone likes and appreciates your work. What a great feeling!

Concert in Gulley Park

On Thursday, July 24th, I hosted a concert at the Pavilion in Gulley Park in Fayetteville. Although we had the threat of rain all day the evening turned out to be beautiful. My dear friend, and fellow harpist, Tammy Willicox came all the way from Miami, Oklahoma to surprise me!

Many of my neighbors and […]

Botanical Garden of the Ozarks

Last weekend I played my first wedding at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks in Fayetteville. As a long time member, I’m particularly fond of this location. It is so beautiful!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, in full disclosure, I have to say that doing outdoor weddings is […]

It’s a Harptastic Social Life

Professional musicians are small business owners and therefore wear a lot of hats. On my list of things that I do is helping out the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen. This a great group and I help on the magazine and also manage their Facebook Page. Doing social media for yourself or for […]
