Chemicals

I don’t know how I can travel this much and play so many shows in a row and never get sick. But if I were just hanging out for a long time resting then I’d catch a cold. They need to learn to isolate whatever chemical the body makes when touring really hard. That’s the chemical of a good defense system. I love it when I have 37 shows in a row without a day off because I tell my body that it’s not allowed to get sick. So I’m convinced the chemicals conjure up a super army to fight off bad guys.
Uh oh. I may have just jinxed myself. Jinxy the cat.

Ashland tonight

The Elkton Oregon show was sweet last night. Sweet like melted chocolate and marshmallows and graham crackers. It was a s’mores type show. This little hamlet has a special place in my heart. My friend Denny when he was alive used to cook me fabulous meals take me to the river. I miss him. Last night I pretended he was at the show.
Thank you Elkton! I’ll be back.

Tonight I play Ashland Oregon. It’s going to be a really fun house concert. Potluck starts at 7pm. Bring something scrumptious! Here’s the address 842 Blaine St Ashland Oregon. Email burckm@gmail.com for more info.
See you tonight. xo

Song Camp Mash Up

A girl drew this mash up of my songwriting talk at The Americana Song Camp at Sisters Folk Festival in Sisters Oregon. She just showed me her page and I had to laugh. I realized she was taking notes from a crazy person. How did I get this gig? I would totally kick me out.
The artist’s name? Her name is Maren Burck here’s her Tumblr
