Thank you so much John! Don't know why I couldn't have emailed him, just dumbstruck with awe at his talent, I guess!

Now I realize the weaknesses of buying on itunes! No art or lyrics!! I'm gonna go out and get a real life copy, especially since I want the last song "I'll be on my Way" sung at my death ceremony, which I've already told everybody is to be on Brokenback Mountain!!

May 2019 be better for us all.

We have the opportunity for a concert!

Shawn Kirchner would like to do a concert of his new album during the L.A. weekend.
 
How many people are interested in attending?
 
How much would you be willing to spend on a ticket? Or a donation to cover the cost? I am willing to invest a little, but I probably can't cover the entire cost. It could be in the range of $2,000 plus.
 
I think Sunday might be the best day. What do you all think?
 
We would love to have all of the musicians and singers from the album, but that would be very expensive.
 
Shawn is willing to do the concert with just piano, guitar and 1 or 2 additional singers. This might be something we could make happen.
 
Please let us know what you think of the idea.
 
And if you haven't heard the album, check it out:

That sounds fantastic. I would love to come, and pass the hat like I did for you up in Michigan. It was very effective. Every once in a while I stopped to do a little dance, and everyone paid me to go away!!

John, if you have the liner from the CD, could you post the track listings, and the artists who sing on each track for us...  :)

Today I finally got my act together and bought this CD - I paid and downloaded it to my iPod.
About an hour ago I went for a walk and of course listened to it while strolling though the, at this time at night, deserted streets of my town.
When the song Meet Me On the Mountain came on, the very first snow of the year started to fall.
It was such a beautiful moment for me. How odd that I happened to buy that album on this particular day.
When the line "sometimes it brought the early snow... came on...it was powerful.

As I came back to my house, I fished my door key out of my pockets and noticed the two cowboy boots hanging from it. The boots that I acquired during the Brokie gathering in Stockholm a few weeks ago, and it really hit me then what an integral part of my life that BBM has become. It's f*cking everywhere! :)
