I had a wonderful summer. I hope you did too!
Sawdust Art Festival in Laguna Beach was a blast as usual. Always awesome hanging with my Sawdust tribe.
I'm finally REALLY booking again & even played twice in Laguna Beach, CA but did not play beyond California. Some (annoying but it will be fine) health issues kept me close to home. I think I might play at Winterfest in Laguna too this year so look for that plus random gigs around SoCal.
Last year, I barely broke an ankle bone last year, (from being too zippy on a slick floor, lolz). The bone healed in a jiffy yet I have a tendon or something that is STILL a bit painful at times despite PT etc....let's just say I didn't get to surf this summer either, Urgh! I just should have pushed them sooner because knew that soft tissue was the biggest problem, it didn't help that I changed medical groups either from a world class group (it was just too far away) to a group that is a world class pain in the butt. OOfFF! Finally pushing back and an MRI coming soon (after first they wasted yet more time with MORE X-rays that show a healed bone!) though so...it will all work out.....but, I just had to cancel a few things because of it.
But the beach & bonfires & friends is still so much fun, right?
Sometimes, I swear though, this is all really a secret puppy plot by our Great Dane, Albert & adorable little scamp, Bunny Zuzu, to keep me home with them. They of course believe playing with them is my ONLY job. I do love them too - Albert is large even for a Dane & could easily jump the fence yet never does because since being rescued, he's so crazy happy & safely loved!
Goodness I miss Nashville. And Colorado... I still might show up playing in Utah, we'll see.
On my personal FB page www.facebook.com/marycoppin you can watch some really fun publicly posted videos of the very last night, dancing & whooping it up to local favorite band World Anthem. Not even the videos can show how much fun we had though. You will just have to be there next time.
Don't forget to I have my Music FB page too where you can see pics etc. https://www.facebook.com/MaryCoppinAwardWinningSongwriter
I'll be posting more music on there as time & resources allow. Meanwhile, you can buy music at iTunes & CDbaby, Amazon etc.
I really enjoyed meeting new people when I played this summer. It makes my heart smile that my old song, A Room Up For Rent can still help some of you cry. It's an honor to have that beautiful exchange with you.
Btw yes, this website is getting overhauled. I'm hearing from you about issues, please DO continue to let me know about any links etc that are having problems, we are working on it..hang in there.
Love you, miss you, Mary :-D (I know keybd emogee are old school but I will always think they are cute)
