David Card

David Card, Poor David his own self, put the benefit at Poor David’s Pub together in six days. I am proud to be a member of Team PDP that produced a successful benefit and raised  over $4000 on Saturday, September 2. The money  was delivered to the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and a pet rescue agency in Port Aransas.

I opened the show and was happy to be the first in a long line of songwriters and one cover band.

Dan Roark/Mr. Troll/Don Wall/Sam Baker/Bill Nash/Loose Change/Elizabeth Wills/Grady Yates/Jimmy Baldwin/Mike Freiley/Bob and Sally Ackerman/Caroline Murphy/Jimmy Adcock Trio/Rickey Gene Wright/Tim York/Travis Buster/Rick Babb/Annie Benjamin/Grace Pettis/Sonia of Disappear Fear/Greg Schroeder/Ann Armstrong and Steve Hughes/Baylis Laramore.

I will post pictures on my Facebook music page. I had to leave after Caroline Murphy so I may have the exact order a little off. If people who have pictures of the other acts would send them to me, I’ll add them to the album.

Thanks to David Card, Clare Card, all the great songwriters and musicians, the food crew and all of Team PDP for a wonderful benefit for our southern neighbors.

Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.

It’s heartening to see all the fundraisers being organized to benefit the victims of the hurricane and resulting storms. I’m happy to be playing at two of those fundraisers this weekend.

Saturday is the Poor David’s Pub benefit from noon to midnight. I open the show at 1 p.m. and there will be songwriters sharing their songs all day and into the evening. It’s a good lineup of songwriters. Come out for a full day of music. Bring a donation and a giving heart.

Sunday is a benefit at The Forge in Ben Wheeler. The Ben Wheeler Fire Department is taking donations and Eddie Pardee organized a benefit at The Forge to generate donations. It will be in the outdoor pavilion from noon until 9 p.m. I will be on at 2 p.m. Come on out and join us if you’re in east Texas. Or make a road trip from Dallas. It’s a nice little town and the Forge has really good food.

Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

David Card

In a stroke of luck, Poor David’s Pub had this Saturday, September 2, open. In a stroke of misfortune, the Kerrville Fall Festival was cancelled in support of their hurricane stricken neighbors.

So David Card is putting together a one day “festival” in support of the hurricane victims. Since it’s short notice, we need to get the word out. Follow the link to David’s Facebook page and join in the conversation.

Tell him that you’ll be there to join us in support. If you are a songwriter, let him know if you want to get on the list. I plan to be there to play my Poor David’s Pub song.

Spread the word. Come join us. Spread the word. Let’s support the victims. Oh, and did I say spread the word?

Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.

You may recall my earlier post when the Danny White family was having a barbeque to benefit their 18 year old daughter, Micaela, who is battling Acute Myeloid Lymphoma. Danny is a friend from high school and his parents are members of our church. The recent news on Micaela from her grandparents is that she is still trying to regain enough strength to have a bone marrow transplant at Children’s Medical Center. And, to make matters worse, the family suffered a devastating fire in February at their home in which they lost nearly everything, and which forced them to find temporary living quarters.

A Catfish Boil and Cookout is being held in Micaela’s honor on June 4th from noon until 4 p.m. at the Rosemeade Market in Carrollton. Please help if you can by attending the cookout or making a contribution at the Micaelas Army website. If you graduated from W. T. White in the ‘70’s, you will have a chance to catch up with old friends and classmates at the cookout. Find more information by reading my previous post and the WFAA news report from March.

Peace be with you.
