Big in Europe

The Beauty in Ruin is getting airplay and ink all over Europe these days. We're still working on some translations, but there are a few new reviews posted on the Press page. Check out what they think of Abi across the pond.

Who mixes well with Abi?

The Beauty in the Ruin has been added to The Music Genome Project, so you can now listen to it on Pandora radio. Add Abi to your mix and see what else pops up. I've heard that artists from Phil Collins to Gretchen Wilson have been played on the same stations. You can also see who else is listening to Abi and check out what other artists they like. Isn't Web 2.0 amazing?!

Labor of Love Day

Thanks to the Unions and other workers who fought for 8 hour workdays and weekends off. Without them, no one would have time to go hear music! So Abi will spend Labor Day Weekend working. But since she loves her job, and gets lots of random days off, it's OK. Shows and radio appearances in Tennessee and North Carolina this week. See Tour page for details. Now if we could do something about those long drives, that would be a real respite.

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

I'm so excited to be selected for the Falcon Ridge/Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase at the FRFF this summer! I'll be playing with a bunch of other great artists on July 25, but the whole festival is going to be so fun. I haven't been since 1999, so I just can't wait to get a good dose of New England folk music.

It's really happening!

The audio master and all the art files have been sent to the duplicator and the order placed. The day when i have the CD's in my hand is closer than ever!

Also, I won the song contest at The Fiddler's Frolics Festival in Halletsville last weekend. It was really fun hanging out with friends and hearing the other songs and eating a corny dog and seeing those amazing kid fiddlers. I'm putting the prize money right into redesigning my website. Wahoo!
