Happy fall, y’all!
First things first: check out the fun little Facebook video I made above. I’ve always been a fan of Miss Patsy Cline’s work, and I’ve always wanted to cover one of her tunes. So I did. I think you’ll like it.
Mostly, I’m keeping things a bit quiet in the live performance department this month, gearing up for some exciting stuff to come next year. Further details a bit later. But that said, if you happen to be flying into or out of Austin’s airport any time soon, you’ve got a chance to catch me as part of their Live Music in the Air series:
-Thursday, Nov. 8th on the Taco Deli stage from 1 to 2:50pm
-Tuesday, Dec. 18th on the Annie’s stage from 3:30 to 5:30pm
Not able to make it past Austin Airport TSA on one of those days? Don’t forget, you can always hire me to play your holiday party. I’ve heard that having a singing pianist around for your festivities greatly decreases the chance that your somehow always-pickled stepbrother will feel the need to break out with his annual slurring rendition of ‘Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer’. To start a conversation about how I can help make your party a smashing success, all you have to do is drop me a line at my contact page.
And just for fun – I want to share a couple of pics from a trip we took to Big Bend National Park last weekend (see below). It was glorious. We hiked nearly 30 miles and saw all manner of wondrous things – big hairy tarantulas (fitting for Halloween, no?), birds and lizards of assorted sizes, and lots of miscellaneous crawly critters. And look at that gorgeous blue sky! Sure, there were a couple tiny setbacks – Scott got into a disagreement with a rattlesnake after one hike (See, Scott wanted to get into our car, which Bitey McSlithers had claimed for his own personal shade provider) but overall – it was great. And we learned some stuff, too (namely, that snakes are fond of being under cars, and it is wise not to dangle your bare feet out the back of your car post-hike in the desert). Now get out there and enjoy the outdoors before it gets too cold!
This is us (well, our boots really) after trekking 12.5 miles up a mountain. It was a long hike. It was sweaty. It was dirty. Scott had a close encounter with a rattlesnake (story above). But this view from the top was totally worth it.
