So back in April or May sometime I sent in an application to the governing body of a major folk festival in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. I filled out the forms, cut an audition CD, and mailed it off. I thought “Why not?” with a shrug, and didn’t think too much more about it because I typically don’t get picked for things I want to do (Children’s Theater tryouts or Miss-Whatever type of scholarship talent shows, anyone?), but hey, the postage was cheap and it was a fun idea.
This last Friday I received a letter in the mail. Husband walks in the house with it in his hand. “I don’t know, but this feels a bit too heavy to be a rejection letter,” he said as he handed it over to me.
Can I just say HOLYJESUSPOO?!?
I have been selected as one of the festival performers for the 2013 Tumbleweed Music Festival as put on by the Three Rivers Folklife Society in Richland WA! I get a 45 minute set on the River stage on Sunday, Sept 1st, at 12:30pm. So come on down and say hello, buy a CD, or just give me a shoutout to any friends you have who may be attending. 🙂
