Acoustic Pie Newsletter, June 2009

Hello and happy summer!

I love the summer.  I love outdoor concerts.  I’ll tell you about a wonderful new outdoor music festival if you keep reading.  Here’s the agenda…

1.  Even When I’m Very Lazy

2.  LA Acoustic Music Festival

3.  For San Diegans Only


1.  Even When I’m Very Lazy

… and I don’t write newsletters for a bit, I still post the Top 20 songs from Acoustic Pie Radio on the first of every month.   You’ll find them in the Acoustic Pie Blog.  I even made a new category for them, “Top 20”, to make them easier to find.  Here they are:  Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie

And I update the Featured Artist on the website periodically as well!  This month, David Wilcox will jump out at you from the Acoustic Pie home page.

2.  The LA Acoustic Music Festival

What a glorious place to listen to music.   A brand new outdoor festival took place on June 6-7 on the Santa Monica Pier with fresh air, sunshine and amazing views in every direction.  Perfect weather graced the first ever LA Acoustic Music Festival.  I went all day Sunday and I thought it was fabulous.  It was lightly attended but the organization, the sound, the atmosphere and the performances were top rate!  I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed the traveling Woody Guthrie Tribute show “The Ribbon of Highway” with Jimmy LaFave, Joel Raphael, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Eliza Gilkyson and Slaid Cleaves among others.  It’s a beautifully organized tribute combining Guthrie songs with readings from his other writings.  I think I may just have to buy the album.

I took WAY too many pictures which is my excuse for why they are not yet posted on the website.  It’s going to take me a while to weed through them all!  But I hope to have a new album up by next week.  Hopefully.

3.  For San Diegans Only

I’ve added a few shows to the Acoustic Pie Picks Calendar and I wanted to especially recommend Girlyman at LeStat’s on Saturday, June 20.  I just love that trio.  It will be a huge treat to hear them on one of my favorite coffeehouse stages.

Ok, thanks for reading, everybody!
