spring has sprung!

It was a looong winter...February brought me to Raleigh, NC for the 9th annual Ignited By Truth Conference where Matt Kelly (speaker & writer) reminded us what it is to live life with passion and purpose from his newest book Rediscovering Catholicism...interesting reading. I also met Deby Schlapprizzi (speaker and radio host)...great message, visit her site: I returned to Raleigh in March for the Southern Women's Show. Met a wonderful artist: Howard Blichfeldt and now proudly display 2 of his prints in my office. Visit his site : I think my fav is "Life's challenges are not designed to break us but to bend us toward God." We had Taste of the Beach here in the Outer banks in March...was very well has really grown in the last few years...I sang at the Good Life Eatery and we had folks dancing in the isles! Put that on your calendar for next'll enjoy it! Thursday May 12 I'll be debuting with my buddies THE JAZZMEN (keyboards, bass & drums) at the ribbon cutting reception for Cafe Lachine in Wanchese 5-8pm...join us for some great food and music! (252-473-5700

Sunday May 15th I'm in Edenton Music in the Park Sunday & open to the public...stop by...I'm on at 4pm-5pm
Currently I'm gearing up for the summer schedule. The Christian Music Summer Concert Series is looking good. We will be at the Good Life Eatery at MP 4.5 in Kitty Hawk this year Mondays 7-8pm beginning Memorial Day May 30 with the kick-off started by yours truly. Gallop Funeral Services is one of our sponsors so you might want to bone up on your funeral trivia for Courtney Gallop's trivia game. This is our 3rd season. Proceeds will benefit the Food Bank and ICO. All artists who have CDs will have them available. Food and beverages from Good Life will also be available.
The rest of my summer schedule will be posted as soon as I can get confirmation from my vendors.
If you're visiting the Outer Banks and would like a living room concert at your rental/summer home while you're here, please use the phrase "Life's too short!" when you contact me for a special discount!
see ya in the sun!
