Greetings Everyone- Hello and how are you all doing? Welcome to all of you who have joined in on my newsletter scene…thank-you for signing up! Spring is almost here....I finally raked our front garden and pruned, too: prepping for the new plants that will take root there soon. Lots of Blackbirds and Chickadees are singing and our resident Cooper’s Hawks have returned to the park across the street...a sure sign of warmer times...woohoo! And onto news of a musical nature…I am thrilled with the way both new recording projects are coming together! We recorded the “queer choir” last week, along with Mel Watson with her crazy horns on the kids’ project. The 'adult' album I am recording in Toronto is on the homestretch as far as the recording goes. I can’t wait for you all to hear the songs! I have been sharing unmixed and unfinished versions with a lot of my friends for their opinions and feedback and they are all loving what we have done so far…phew…I’m on the right track! And, a ridiculously huge and heartfelt thank-you to all of those who donated and sponsored a song for these projects! Thank-you for supporting what I do…your generosity has been incredible! If you still would like to donate to these projects, please check out the “buy” page of my website. Pre-sale of the new releases: We are now pre-selling both releases now. If you would like to make a pre-purchase, each cd costs $20 plus $3 for shipping and handling. All cds pre-purchased will be personalized and signed by me and mailed to your door, hot off the press…that is, as soon as we pick the shipment up from the manufacturer! You can either go to the “Buy” page on my website (katereid.net) and follow the instructions there or send a cheque or money order to: Kate Reid Box 410-2416 Main Street, Vancouver, BC V5T 3E2. Make sure you let me know which one(s) you want: the kids’ or adult project and who I sign them to. Thank-you in advance for your support…I hope these songs make your heart sing! Some of my excellent friends are hosting a house concert here in Vancouver, BC. I will be showcasing a lot of the new songs from both projects…here are the deets: House Concert Saturday, May 26th-8pm 4240 Beatrice St, Vancouver First come, first served-40 seats available.
