2. Welcome and general blabbing

I sure covered some ground in October - playing in six different states, from 
Wyoming to South Carolina. Some were at universities for special events like 
gay pride and in Oklahoma I played at Breast Fest. Whoo hoo! South Carolina's 
gig was for the MCC there - I hope they raised lots of money for their new 
building. What a warped, er, warm crowd I had that night. 

I'm still raising money for the next two steps of my new album - duplication 
and promotion. It should be out in the first half of 2005, goddess willin' and 
the crik don't rise. If you'd like to help me with fundraising, there's an 
order form later in the newsletter. Thanks so much to all of you who have 
already ordered. I can't wait to share the album with you!

I'm preaching to the choir here but if you haven't yet voted be sure to do 
so. I know the lines have been long in many places but stick it out, 'k? It's so 
important that we get rid of Doofus Jr.

I'm heading out to New England next. I've got a couple of comedy shows with 
Girls Gone Funny (Deirdre Flint and Carla Ulbrich) as well as one solo gig. 
Hope to see you!

3. Tell your favorite festival you want to hear me

I sent out audition packages to a bunch of festivals. You'd help me out a lot 
if you could contact them and tell them you're interested in hearing me at 
their event. 

Vancouver Folk Festival, 916 W. Broadway #381, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1K7, CANADA
Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, 74 Modley Rd, Sharon, CT, 06069
White River Folk Festival, Conner Prairie, 13400 Allisonville Rd., Fishers, 
IN, 46038
Michigan Women's Music Festival, PO Box 7430, Berkeley, CA, 94707
Wiminfest, PO Box 80204, Albuquerque, NM, 87198-0204
Clearwater Festival, 27 Midline Rd, Ballston Lake, NY, 12019
Philadelphia Folk Festival, 7113 Elwin St, Philadelphia, PA, 19119
Kerrville Folk Festival, PO Box 1466, Kerrville, TX, 78029

I'll stop now - there's more but I don't want your eyes to glaze over. Thanks 
for your help!

4. Winners and answers to last month's quiz

Thanks to everyone who entered last month's contest. I asked for bribes and 
one of you graciously sent me several kinds of virtual chocolate. Hey, looking 
at it is almost as much fun as eating it. Congrats to Dixie who wins a "Queer 
Stock / Queer Soup" double CD featuring many artists including moi. There were 
actually three of you that tied for first but I only had one CD as a prize. I 
put all the names in a hat and drew Dixie's name. Congrats also to runners up 
Marianne and Miki. 

1. What's the title of Mary Chapin Carpenter's newest release?
Between Here and Gone
2. I perform a parody of a Melissa Etheridge song. Which one?
Bring Me Some Water
3. The producer of my newest CD is Kiya Heartwood. What duo is she part of?
Wishing Chair. Check 'em out: www.terrakin.com
4. Who has a song called "Fire in the Rain?"
Holly Near. I know there are others with a song of this name - some of you 
searched the net and found them but it was Near I was looking for. She's a great 
singer/songwriter of songs about peace and social justice. www.hollynear.com
5. Name two people/bands keyboard player Julie Wolfe has worked with.
I was hoping that some of you would mention me. She played on a couple of 
songs from my Bad Hair Day release. I loved working with her. She's such a great 
musician. Funny, too. The other artists she's played with include Ani 
Difranco, Catie Curtis, Jami Sieber, Lisa Koch, and Bruce Cockburn. There are many 
more, I'm sure.
6. I sometimes get mistaken for another funny singer-songwriter. Who is she? 
(Hint: "You Make My Pants Pound")
Lisa Koch. The woman's a stitch - maybe you've seen her on an Olivia Cruise. 
7. What's the name of Laura Love's new book?
You Ain't Got No Easter Clothes. Great book. www.lauralove.net
8. What woman musician is famous for her slide guitar?
Bonnie Raitt. Yum.
9. Natalie Macmaster plays what instrument?
Fiddle. I love her albums but you've gotta catch her live. I saw her at a 
folk festival where she was jumping off the speakers. Yowza. 
10. Who is the organizer and grand poobah of Women Making Music?
Judy Fjell. Women Making Music is a great music camp for women that's held in 
California every year. www.judyfjell.com
11. Who just released an album called "Brown County Waltz?"
Kara Barnard. She's also on my last two albums. www.karabarnard.com
12. Who sometimes plays guitar for Al Stewart?
Many of you named a list of people and some of them were right but no one got 
the name I was looking for: Dave Nachmanoff. Dave's a friend of mine who 
played with me at the Kerrville Folk Festival a few years back. He plays almost 
anything with strings plus piano (okay, okay, a piano has strings too - you know 
what I mean). Great guy and a great musician. www.davenach.com
13. Who also has a song about cats taking over the world ("Fluffy's Master 
Plan for World Domination")?
The Bobs. Wonderful a cappella group with quirky songs. Great CDs and I 
especially love their energetic live show. Who knew that so much sound could come 
from just four voices? www.bobs.com.
14. What country diva has an amusement park named after her?
Dolly Parton. Have you heard her bluegrass CDs? They're AWESOME.
15. Ember Swift plays with a great violinist / bass player. Who is she?
Lyndell Montgomery. Amazing musician. She's also on Kara Barnard's newest 
release. www.emberswift.com
16. Where is Judy Small from?
Australia. If you like well-written topical folk songs sung in a warm voice, 
this woman is for you. www.judysmall.net
17. Who has a great anti-war song called "Not in My Name?"
John McCutcheon. I'm surprised none of you got this right. He's one of the 
best songwriters I know and plays a zillion instruments, all well. The song I 
mentioned is one of the greatest anti-war songs I've ever heard. 

That's a partial list of some of my favorite musicians. I have excellent 
taste, eh?

5. Dance classes in Durham, NC

Barter possible for graphic designers. All others, cold hard cash. Okay, you 
can warm it up first.

One of my students has graciously mentioned me on his new web site. Check out 
www.dwightsullivan.com. And no, I didn't pay him anything for the 
endorsement. (Why do I feel like a politician saying that?)

9. Acoustic guitar music review site

If you like CDs with acoustic guitar - and you should since you have the good 
taste to like my music --  check out www.minor7th.com. They feature reviews 
of singer-songwriters, roots music, jazz and just about anything that features 
an acoustic guitar. Many reviews include sound clips and a link to the 
artist's web site. They've included a review I wrote about the new Po' Girls CD.
