Going through some pictures from the past few months and found this one from the Boulder Farmer’s Market in August that I forgot to post!
I’d heard about this showcase happening the past few years before the Rocky Mountain Song School starts, but never made it to Colorado in time to participate, and to be honest, in previous years I was probably too nervous to even ask if I could.
But after doing so many open mics all summer, I was confident I could rock a similar situation in Boulder, so when I realized that I would be arriving in Boulder on Friday night this time, I wrote to the organizer Jenn Cleary to see if there were any more slots. She asked me if I could do 8:45am and I said yes.
Since I went early, I had the whole rest of the day to relax, wander the vendor booths a bit and watch the other performers. It was hard to leave when everyone that got up was so good! It was a nice way to start the Song School experience a little early and therefore make it last a little longer. I even got a Farmer’s Market Coupon for playing that I used to buy some mango sticky rice! Oh yeah, and we played for tips which we then used to help fund the “Come to Cheeses” wine and cheese party at the campground during the week.
I’m glad I made it in time, I’m glad I asked if there was still room even though it was late notice and I’m glad I said yes even though the time slot was on the early side. I also made a great connection with Jenn and even had her on my radio show when I got back to Austin! Check out the archive of that interview here on KRUU.
And here is the lineup of all the performers for the day:
Proud to be part of such a great line-up!
