SB Nominated for Inaugural Virginia Giordano Memorial Fund Award
I just received notice from SisterSpace that I have been selected as a nominee for the Inaugural year of the Virginia Giordano Memorial Fund. Here is some info from Jo-Ann at SisterSpace: "Virginia was one of the most prolific producers of women's music. She shaped the women's music movement in NYC and beyond. Her influence on local and national artists and the music scene was incalculable. Since her untimely passing in 2014, there has been a wish to create a foundation or fund that would help to continue her work and honor her legacy. We are finally able to bring that dream to fruition in conjunction with the Virginia Giordano Memorial Fund and SisterSpace Weekend Women's Festival.
The goal of the Fund is to support up and coming artists, by giving them performance and networking opportunities initially at the SisterSpace festival and then recommending them to other venues. We have selected you in the hopes that you will help us represent and honor this amazing woman who gave so much of herself toward helping artists and their careers throughout the years.Together we can form a base for an eventual community and network of artists who will carry on her legacy and keep continuing to help each other up."
I am honored, and I can certainly get 100% behind the intention to help each other, mentor up and coming artists, and spread the love as we build community that honors the work of Virginia and women artists everywhere. Thank you, SisterSpace! This year's SisterSpace Women's Weekend happens September 7-9 at Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, MD.
Milford Ladybug Festival
SB will be performing as part of the Inaugural Milford Ladybug Festival in Milford, DE on Saturday, September 22nd, at the Mispillion Art League, from 5-6 pm. I'll be playing as a duo - more details soon. After the entire 2 1/2 years on the East Coast working as a solo artist, I'm psyched to share the stage again. Stay tuned...
Join me the first and second Sunday monthly at CSL Delaware, or at one of my summer shows in the Southern PA/DE/Northern MD area. I am keeping my toes in the water while life and her muses sift and sort to shuffle me a sweet set list of songs to share. Taking a break is good for one's clarity and leaves me excited to be working more this fall. Yes! New music to share.
My strong intention is still the start of an annual return to Western Europe, with 2019 looking more likely than this disappearing year. Once you taste the way the Dutch listen and ask insightful questions about your lyrics... the wholly enthralled appreciation for songwriters that runs through the entire region from Germany to Holland, England to Ireland and Wales, well... that seed grows. More on this as the year unfolds.
Speaking of love:
Love Buzz Music has a new address. We have moved to Elkton, MD (ish), and life is full of new promise. 10 minutes to the college town of Newark, DE and 7 minutes to the historical town of Elkton. The Newark Reservoir is awesome place for a sunset walk, with more extensive woodland hiking available via the White Clay Creek watershed. This tree lover is excited to explore!
Clearly you too love the light of a spring morning through dewy grasses, reflections in water, and a setting sun painting the sky in otherworldly ways. We at Love Buzz Music LOVE the BUZZ of nature's small and grand displays: gratitude really is the path to more. Per your request, Sharon's photographs will soon have an address at sb.com. Thank you for your interest in art in all it's forms.
