Folk Spring Ahead

March 15th, 2014 by megan

Hey it has been awhile but I’m getting back in the game. After a year of being in Nashville I’m inspired to work hard on finding ways to make some new recordings and have been writing again. I’ve been super busy touring with Tim Easton in support of his latest record ‘Not Cool.’ Next month we will be traveling to Alaska again for the Alaskan Folk Festival. We will each play sets there in addition to playing shows together that week… In May I’ll be at the Columbus Folk Fest as well as a couple of Spikedriver’s dates… I’ll list it all below…

Tim and I recently returned from the Folk Alliance. What a time in Kansas City! Songwriters I truly love show up there and pass along inspiration! John Fullbright, Parker Milsap, Sam Baker, Steve Poltz, Amy Speace, Raina Rose, Betty Soo, Amy Levere, The Wild Ponies are some of the favorite people I saw and heard there. I am grateful to know these folks, and witness their hard work…

I didn’t make it to South by Southwest this year. But I had my own (not) NSXSW here in Nashville this week and it made up for it. I managed to have friends Nellie Clay and Larry Cook visit me from Alaska and New York and adventures we had this week in the town I live in! Station Inn, Roberts Western World, The 5 Spot (Country Wednesday), The Basement (Buddy Miller and friends),Bridgestone Arena (BILLY JOEL!) reminded me Nashville has a ton of great music every night, as if one forgets… but truly between being caught up in touring and also coming home and going straight to work at the hospital, sometimes I am oblivious to the sights and sounds of Music City. My brave visitors and I tore up the town!

Upcoming gigs for me include but are not limited to:

April 4-6: Chattanooga TN: Rhythm and Blooms Fest, with Tim Easton

    who was conducting a little research on this. And he in fact
    bought me dinner because I stumbled upon it for
    him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks
    for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending
    time to discuss this issue here on your

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    So that’s why this article is amazing. Thanks!
