From this day forward ...

Once again, I am posting after the fact... but I have just recently learned i must do a better job with my blogging techiques!  How do I know this? I learned about the importance of blogging and keeping my friends up to date on what's going with me and my music on a 'consistent' basis ... "CONSISTENT" being the key word.  Obviously, I should be here when the excitement begins rather than summerize when it's all done.

That said ...
I want to tell you about the fantastic event that happened this weekend.  RISA (RI Songwriters Association) hosted a one day mini NERFA (North East Regional Folk Alliance ) conference at URI ( University of RI ) . This is big news for RISA, always the underdog in the music community.  We proved to be a quite an impressive team and put out a fabulous event.   
The day was filled with about 122 music lovers, workshops, performances, friends & food.  So, I confess, I attended a workshop which addressed marketing our music, BLOGGING was a topic of discussion

The highlight of the day for me was to be chosen as one of the 10 juried Showcases to perform.  Submissions came from all over the US & Canada.  Because I was involved in planning the event i originally decided not to sumbit for a chance to play.. I changed my mind at the last minute .. Good thing I did!!  It is an honor to be chosen.  It is a step ahead for me..  It was a proud moment for me, for RISA .  Grateful for my friends Joe Potenza (on bass) & Mark Hadden (on sax) they join me for this special performance.  Things just keep falling into place, getting better with each day.  I am grateful  I am blessed.

From this day forward, I promise I will do my best to do a better job, be more infomative, more consistent and most of all HAVE FUN with my blog.
All the best,
Joanne
