Welcome to my new website – which was so much fun to work on. I especially hope you enjoy the pictures – an insight to the silliness that is often my life. From time to time I will update this blog and keep you apprised of my gigs and other doings.
For today, let me tell you about a delightful surprise I had. Maybe you have heard of Just Plain Folks? Hmmmm – maybe not. Here is a blurb from their website:
The Just Plain Folks Music Awards — what started as an informal way to recognize our best member submissions has grown into the largest Music Awards program in the world! We’ve screened more than 1,400,000+ songs and 111,000+ albums in 100+ genres from over 185 countries to honor the very best works of our members. Our volunteer judges include industry professionals, peers and music fans. Our sole criteria for judging is “Does it move you?
So … I got an email from my coach/friend/colleague, Andy Offutt Irwin – who said,
Madeline! Two of your albums are nominated for Just Plain Folks Awards! How ‘bout them apples!
Yes indeed, how ‘bout them apples. I am honored to be in the company of the great storytellers who have inspired me…
Andy Offutt Irwin, Kim Weitkamp Gum. Geraldine Buckley. Robin Schulte, Bill Harley…and others. I will let you know what happens.
