We have been to a few music events in the meantime.
Thursday morning they had a big event at the Lost Pines Art Center. Hannibal Lakumbe gave a workshop (One of 5 I believe) introducing the band kids to his love for jazz. He has played in many great orchestras and written many pieces. He had one of the students play on her clarinet and he and a piano player, drummer, singer and himself on trumpet. The student had her part on paper and he let her play through and then took away her music and told her to play with feeling. Fun... He is a resident something with the Philadelphia Philharmonic at the moment so he is picking 2 students to go with him to his opening. He is on page 72 of the score. (You can check him out on YouTube)

We went to The Bugle Boy (thebugleboy.org) in La Grange Friday night to see Terri Hendrix and Susan Gibson. They are super performers on their own and were so much fun together. They both write great tunes and play multiple instruments. Wow!
Then on Saturday afternoon we we went to Austin to the Saxon Pub to see George Ensle. He has a beautiful voice and writes great ballads. He wrote Gene's birthday song as you may recall. I put a few short videos on Instagram
Some great advice for your mailing list is found on the RedDotBlog by Jason Horejs, owner of Xanadu Gallery. This is about follow up for sales. He has great posts about the business/gallery side of art.
The sun came out for a couple of days.
