Sunday - June 19 !! Proceeds from this weekend arts extravaganza will go to support the work of THE PEACE PROJECT. I will be performing at 1pm accompanied by the incredibly fantastic Debra Dobkin and Steve Postell.
Thrilled to play my first ever Folk Alliance Guerrilla Showcase tonight in Room 540 - "Cantina Navarro" - at the The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center at 10:30pm! Thank you Dan Navarro Music for having me be a part of your showcase... So excited!!! The amazing Steve Postell will be joining me on guitar. Can't wait!
Feels so good to be back in my hometown of Kansas City - I never like to be away for TOOOOOO long! : )
I have an acoustic performance this Friday night at the Buffalo Room at the Westport Flea Market. The ever-lovely and wonderfully talented Coleen Dieker will be joining me on stage. It is highly likely that this is my last public performance in KC of this year... so come get your fix!
To purchase tickets in advance (which is highly recommended), please click HERE! There are three staggered seatings so that all guests receive GREAT service (6:30, 7:00 and 7:30) - the show starts at 8pm! Hope to see you there! Lots of love to you all - ~julia~
So excited to be back in my beloved hometown of Kansas City and gearing up, rip roaring to perform an acoustic garden party Saturday night! And I am so grateful, so very very very grateful that the show is SOLD OUT! Thank you everyone!!! I promise to make it worth your while to spend your Saturday night with me....
Gosh - SO looking forward to it that I am not sure that I will be able to fall asleep tonight! Maybe I should have a glass of wine? See you soon!
Time for another update! Many of you who know me know about MARY - the ultimate amazing studio pitbull that graces us with her presence. She has been a strong champion of the project - being a constant companion (she refuses to be anywhere but the studio when we are in there), suggesting great "breaks" in the form of walks around the neighborhood and the park, offering snuggles when things are frustrating, and now she is even becoming a vocal proponent of the work.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the best harmonizer I have ever known - Mary, the studio dog...she felt like my backing harmonies in the middle 8 of one of our tracks, yet to be titled, needed a little more juice.
And yes, that is her personalized pillow that James designed and I embroidered for her. Yes, I am that person. : )
