April Newsletter

Greetings, all. Looks like spring might actually be here. Montana folks deserve a collective pat on the back for getting through this unusually rough winter/early “spring.” After I had posted a few pictures of the snow on Facebook, a friend asked if I’d written a song about it yet. I hadn’t, so I did! With some helpful suggestions from my Bozeman Songwriters Group, I completed the attached song. It’s a bit rough—just recorded on my phone, and the “movie” is just a way to share the audio in an accessible format, but here you go. I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think.

April has me pulled in a lot of directions, so I have limited gigs next month. You can catch me at the Taproom on Tuesday, April 23rd, from 7 to 9 pm. The Taproom has an amazing selection of beers, a casual atmosphere, and a great, recently updated menu. My favorite is still the Zeus, or Greek Salad.

If are reading this before March 29th, be sure to come down to Santa Fe Reds on North 7th and Oak for some great tunes and magnificent margaritas. Silas Rea will be joining me on fiddle and mandolin. That’s 6 to 8 pm. No cover.

Looking ahead to May, please mark your calendars for May 3rd. Dance the night away with Edis and the Incredibles at the fantastic Sacajewea Hotel in Three Forks, Montana. Expect heartfelt vocals and incredible instrumentalists. Influences range from the Allman Brothers, to Bonnie Raitt, to Mary Chapin Carpenter. That's Edis on vocals and acoustic guitar, Cliff DeManty on backup vocals and keyboard, Eddie T on bass, and Greg Vallor on drums. And we might have a special guest guitarist. 9 pm to 12:30, Friday, May 3rd. No cover. Tips appreciated.

I’ll be back at Unity Spiritual Center on the 21st and 28th.

I also want to tell you about KGLT fund drive. KGLT celebrates 51 years of great music with our annual two week fund drive starting Sunday, March 24th. KGLT is non-commercial and mostly listener supported, making our annual fund drive a major source of operating revenue. KGLT's staff of over 85 volunteer DJs take to the airwaves to offer a wide assortment of gifts donated by local businesses and organizations to entice listeners to support this rare breed of radio stations. KGLT also offers its own line of gear with a fresh logo every year. T-shirt packages start at just $50 and the deal gets sweeter as you increase your pledge! We invite you to participate by calling 406-994-4492 during our live fund drive Sunday, March 24 through Saturday April 6 -We have massages, artwork, jewelry and GREAT music packages. It's a very exciting time and you'll be able to see many of the incentives as well as the new tees, hats, mugs, and totes online at www.kglt.net.

My show will be March 30th, 3 to 6 pm. Please call in and show your support. Thank you.

Enjoy our kind-of-late spring, and thanks again for your support.
