I have a wonderful event to tell you about! Brian Pothier and I will be performing at the 19th Annual Orange County Children's Book Festival at Orange Coast College (2701 Fairview Road, Costa Mesa) this Sunday, October 2nd at 1:50pm on the “Entertainment Stage.”
Last year, a co-founder of the Orange County Children’s Book Festival, Pat Burns, asked me to write a song to accompany an important new learning initiative called “STEAM: Race to Space Reading Challenge” (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics). So, I enlisted the help of my better half, John Diggins, and we wrote a song we called “Read, Read, Read.” It was a hit with the STEAM team, and Pat asked us to perform it at this year’s Book Festival.
You can check out our song, which was produced and recorded by Brian, here: https://www.readsteam.org/teacher-resources And ya gotta check out some of the authors, illustrators, filmmakers, actors, scientists, engineers and entertainers that will be participating in this year's festival: https://www.kidsbookfestival.com.
John, Brian and I are very excited to be a part of this great event! Admission and parking are free! C'mon out!
I will be opening for this super cool all-female Country/Americana quintet “Mustangs of The West” on August 10th at Campus Jax in Newport Beach. They will be featuring songs from their album “Time,” which was released on Blue Elan Records during the lock down, and songs from their newest double album on KZZ Music with a release later this year.
Doors open at 5pm. Show starts at 6pm. For tickets and details, visit: https://campusjax.seatengine.com/shows/181774
