Why are you performing at Pride?
I’m thrilled to be performing at Charlottesville Pride this year. I think this event is an excellent way to celebrate the LGBTQ community in this area and I’m proud to be a part of it.
I used to listen to the radio constantly as a kid. I found music to be a place to experience and communicate deeply felt things and I’ve appreciated this about music and the arts all my life. When I moved to Charlottesville as a UVA undergrad, I used to sit with a keyboard and play music in front of Webb/Watson dorm. Later that year my mother passed away and I picked up the acoustic guitar – it’s been a fun way to commune with friends and strangers ever since.
Take away the thought that we all share the common bond of human emotion and putting on someone else’s shoes, even in the imagination, goes a long way…. Is that what this question is asking? Or – take a CD home with you. I’m releasing a new one this Fall. Either/or 🙂
