We circled up for a chat with Reggie, Sally, David (in the King David Room) and Jennie with some other like-minded family folk people. Great discussions about what we do, how we do it, working in classrooms, assembly vs. classroom presentations, and, in general, a spritely discussion of where we all are in this arena.
Interestingly enough, there were absolutely no millenials around to (wishful thinking) absorb this opportunity to form a long-form guide to a financially productive means to making a living as a folk artist.
I chatted with one fellow from CA who shared my “method over message” approach to kids music, stressing it’s how we do what we do that makes a difference over what the song says. It’s a real dichotomy that is never addressed at these sessions.
There was lots of info passed around, and most folks got their say. Sally finished out the session with her Seed song. Point on.
I met some new folks and made some new friends. Passed out CDs to spread the music. That’s what it’s all about.
Next, take in the day.
