Songwriting Residency at Van Hise Elementary School!

I’m excited to be an artist-in-residence this semester, working on songwriting with the students at Van Hise Elementary in Madison, Wisconsin!

Over the course of the past two months, I’ve been assembling videos, interacting with students via Skype, and brainstorming about songwriting. This week, we’re concluding our work together with a week-long in-person school visit and concert.

I’m excited to work and collaborate with these aspiring songwriters!

Performance Collaboration Between Bluebird Cafe and Nashville Ballet

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From Nashville Ballet: You may recognize our Company Artist Gerald Watson from performances at TPAC, but during Emergence with The Bluebird Cafe, he’ll take on the role of choreographer in collaboration with musician Tony Memmel to bring you new work only hours in the making!

Watson and Memmel are one of 14 groups presenting work during this year’s edition of Emergence and will be featured in tomorrow’s opening night lineup.

Success…

 

I read this passage this morning and thought it was SO good and SO important that I just had to share it with you:

“We want success without sacrifice, but life doesn’t work that way. Success will not be shortchanged. You have to pay the price and it never goes on sale.” – Mark Batterson

Books

Really proud of my mom for releasing a BRAND NEW BOOK! “From This Day Forward…” is a collection of love stories (including Lesleigh’s and mine!), and it’s out just in time for Mother’s Day.

Congratulations, Katie Kolberg Memmel (Mom)!

TODAY’S SHOW CANCELED Due to Weather

TODAY’s SHOW CANCELED! Unfortunately, the rainy, cold weather has forced Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery to close the rooftop patio today.

Though there won’t be any live music, the main, downstairs restaurant is definitely still open for business, so be sure to go if you’re hanging out in downtown Nashville today.
