Living Testament keeps popping up. Just found this...

Busily searching for something else, I came upon this article written for the Country Arts Network WA.  This is just a screenshot, if you'd like to read it all, the link to it is here.

At the bottom of the article there is a Vimeo clip.  I don't know who put it together, but it's rather lovely, and my beautiful girl features rather a lot. The songs used are "Dust Beneath My Feet", written and performed by yours truly (first rough iPhone recording, this one), and "Don't Be Afraid Of My Power", lyrics from 'Thunder: Perfect Mind', from the Nag Hammadi Gospels, music by the lovely Chrystal Rogers, performed by Chrystal with me providing harmony vocals. Also a very rough iPhone recording, Chrystal sang it for us during one of our rehearsals, and I added the harmony vocals later using Garage Band. Both these songs also appear on our CD, now beautifully recorded by the lovely Pete Grandison. 

Here's the Vimeo!

The Wolf Bride finds her way into the world...

Well, it all happened on the weekend, and despite being a nervous wreck on Saturday morning, it went beautifully.  So many lovely people with so many lovely comments, the venue was pretty full both times and by about twenty minutes in you could have heard a pin drop.  I don't know where else in the world I would have had the opportunity to do this at such a wonderful festival, but here in my own wonderful little town.  

And what a glorious weekend.  I saw so much amazing music from local groups through to international acts, spent time with my beautiful girls wandering about town and dipping into the smorgasbord of aural delights that was on offer.  And the weather was glorious too, beautiful sunshiney days and crisp evenings, a perfect winter holiday.  There's not much point in me trying to describe all the acts I saw, so I'll just add the link to the Denmark Festival of Voice online program so you can peruse the delights for yourself.  And all in a small country town of about 6000 people.

We received the CDs for the Living Testament just in time to make one of the showcase performances into a CD launch.  I had great fun belting out 'Rahab Rock!' again, up onstage with a mic this time, happily satisfying any long buried ambitions to be a 'rock chick'.

And there's my beautiful girl!

The Wolf Bride also got the 'sand printer' treatment!

And if all that wasn't exciting enough, I applied for a two week Puppetry Intensive Course, at the wonderful Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, and was accepted.  Cariad Astles from the UK is coming out to run the second week, so I'm thrilled and excited to be getting the chance to follow up on another passion.  Maybe I'll be able to incorporate puppetry into future Wolf Bride performances!

So I'm looking into the possibility of holding a house concert up in Perth while I'm there.  And there might be a few more opportunities in the near future down here in Denmark before then too, I had lots of requests from people wanting to know when it might be happening again.

Phew!  I'm still recovering from it all!
