September Into October! SWRFA Conference, October gigs & radio 

Hi friends,

Well I surely didn't lie when I said September would be busy, and challenging for me!  Sorry it's been a while - here's what's coming up. Check the "Shows" listing for details, including exact locations, times, tickets, etc.

Sept. 28 through Sunday October 1, I'll be attending the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference, affectionately known as SWRFA, conveniently located here in Austin! On Friday Sept 29, I'll be doing a few afternoon and later evening private showcases, and one on Saturday night. Both nights will feature fantastic shows by extremely talented singer-songwriters, and the public is welcome - $15 admission gets you the big official showcase shows, plus a wristband to see the private showcases in hotel suites upstairs. Check the "Shows" listing for details! 

Sunday October 8 I'm up in Dallas at the Prophet Bar, sharing the bill with a  talented new acquaintance from Portland, OR, Danny Sohn, and my Songfarmer pal B.R. Lively. B.R. has a fantastic new album coming out, produced by Gordy Quist (who also produced my CD), so check out his website for a sneak peek. Your mind will be blown! I'm excited about this gig, and my first time playing in Dallas - please come out if you're around. A mere $10

Thursday October 12 I'll be on Wimberley Valley Radio, KWVH 94.1 FM, online streaming at for a morning interview and live playing on Richard Smith's "Breakfast With Coach" program. Coach Smith is a beloved member of Wimberley community that I call home - as well known for his love of music as he is for coaching two State Championship football teams (he used to give pre-game locker room pep talks to the marching band as well as the football team!)  I'm looking forward to catching up and playing a few new songs. Check the "Shows" listing for details! 

Sunday October 15 I'm returning to a favorite listening room, The Lemon Lounge in Austin, for a song swap with the ridiculously talented Tom Meny, one of my favorite songwriters in the entire state of Texas, or the entire U.S., for that matter. Tom's beautiful melodies, smooth as silk vocals, and thoughtful lyrics are like a balm to your soul. If you're in Austin, please come! The very, very talented young newcomer Susannah Joffe is opening up, and she is a revelation. 6pm doors, 6:30 music. $6  That's a lot of 6's, but the music will be heavenly, I promise! (come early for a chair, seating is limited!)

Tuesday October 24 brings a relaxing Hill Country gig at the Shade Tree Saloon in Spring Branch, where I'll be joined by the amazing Scott Davis. Scott plays bass with the Band of Heathens, and is also a talented multi-instrumentalist (he plays many of the instruments on my CD Step By Step) with his own band, VivaScottDavis. We'll be playing original songs and some of our shared favorites from the Great Americana Songbook (yes, there is sure to be some Graham Parsons in there!). Come on out from 6-9 or thereabouts. It's a relaxing indoor/outdoor venue with comfort food, home-brewed beer and of course, lots and lots of big shade trees. I'm a lucky gal indeed!

More soon and much love and gratitude,

Claudia <3
