Hello, October…

icon I love you already.
Greetings, friends and fellow music lovers – time for a quick update from the road.

2. THE NEWS…Next week is our final meeting regarding the poetry book. Thank you to all who have given proofreading input. Very soon it will be REAL! Here is a new poem from my last trip to Minnesota just for fun.

Tyler Fortier and I have set aside three days at a house on the Oregon coast in early November to record my next album. This will be album number 10. It will be elemental and acoustic. New songs are pouring in. Working title is “Paper Kites”. More coming soon…

ahhh the glory that is the Sisters Folk Festival and Americana Song Academy. It is my great privilege and pleasure to be a part of both of these amazing events! This was our line-up for the Sunday Community show… seriously!?!?! So awesome I almost fainted. I’m about to faint right now thinking about it.

i was so excited that my mentor and favorite singer-songwriter Chris Rosser got to come to Sisters this year! It was a blast to share the stage with him!

this was the backstage view from the Five Pines stage at Sisters Folk Fest…breathtaking!

it was a blast to return to the UU Coffeehouse in Columbia, SC! here is where i learned about a spicy ginger ale made in SC that is so good with bourbon it should probably be illegal.

the beautiful grand piano at WUWF in Pensacola, FL, where the folks have been so good to me i hardly know how to thank them.

4. THE FUTURE…I am so blessed to be making music. November and December will hold some wonderful shows and creative endeavors, and then the end of the year will wind down to that quiet winter hum that I so crave and enjoy. Thank you for reading, for showing up, for telling your friends, for clapping, and for giving my music a home in your hearts. I could not do this with out you. With much gratitude from your fan,

Beth Wood
