It has been really really way too long since I posted anything on here. First and foremost, as the title says I’ll be playing at the Parkersburg Downtown Market this Saturday. I’m excited about this for a few reasons. First, it’s important to support local farmers. If I bring one person in contact with one farmer and they do business, that’s a win.
As a performing songwriter, this is a great way to connect with new people. A chance to be heard. I don’t think of it so much as a business, but I think there is a place for me out there. I’m not completely where I want to be as an artist. But I think there’s a market for where I am. I just need to find it. So being heard by a new audience is a good thing
There’s also the idea of going outside my comfort zone, which consists of my house and The Adelphia Music Hall. Hehehe! For me, that used to mean a bit of anxiety, or stage freight if you will. I don’t feel that now, though. That’s a good thing. Finding a comfort level when you perform is the best way to guarantee a good show. Whether I sell one cd, or one hundred, I want to do a good show and put my best foot forward. Rob Szabo says it best, starting at about the :52 mark of this video.
I love that sharing this didn’t really hit me until I started writing. They are such true words. Something to write on a card and read over before every show. I need those kind of reminders. It’s also a good segue into Rob’s latest production on Peter Katz’s new CD, Still Mind Still.
I really need to stop. Just check out Peter’s new CD. It’s so good! Hope to see you Saturday!!
