Well goodness. Yup. Dragging my butt. Over a week into the month and yeah just now getting to this update. Lotta reasons I could give but lemme just come right out and admit it. Yup. Other than trying to find time to work on Sunnyland there is just not all that much going on musically.
And well then of course there's this whole COVID thing happening. Not having booked anything for this year to allow me to put any free or extra (ha!), time towards Sunnyland, I ended up not having to get all upset about shows getting canceled. Which is sort of a silver lining (?). And because I wasn't planning on playing out live this year I ain't jonesing and hence not at all motivated to do any live streaming like a lot of other folks.
Nope instead I've been posting old live video and forging ahead with Sunnyland. Was super pleased to get a week to myself on the front end of this month. Had the third number in my head and beginning to form itself and yeah so was tickled pink to get a chance to try and get a basic banjo and drum track sketched out. Wasn't easy tell ya what. Haven't sat down at the kit for so long it took a few days before I felt good enough to even try and track anything. Yeah I was that rusty. Sad state of affairs.
But yeah felt good to make some noise. and though Rough AF the first attempt is now parked in the Sunnyland Souncloud Playlist. Link in the side bar if ya want an ear full.
Uh yeah and in between I been working on designs for ClydeFEST 2020. Been involved with this children's festival honoring Folk Artist Clyde Jones for oh goodness, 10 plus years. course now with the COVID thing we had to cancel and then re-imagine the FEST with a TO Go sorta Flo. Everyone at Chatham Arts Council did a great job of pivoting. And in an effort to create a virtual ClydeFEST experience we gave out some 400 Critter Cut-outs Art Kits to children all over the county!
And below the ClyseFEST To Go Pick up site picture in the side bar are a couple of images that I worked up for the FEST. And hey tell ya what if ya dig the Critter Text one with the ears and polka dot tail and would like to help support my local arts council click this link HERE to go to the ClydeFEST Cafe Press Store and get ya some!
Okay well lastly should tell ya with planning to put more time into Sunnyland I'll be backing away from live performances and going to bi-monthly on the Breadfoot updates. Check back here in July for new updates and if in the meantime ya wanna see if there's something new follow me on Soundcloud or Facebook and oh yeah if ya want pop on by over to the Breadfoot Store, T-shirts and CDs available and ya know I appreciate your support.
