The Blues Audience Newsletter's Publisher,
Diana Shonk, was honored and flattered
by HeatherFest with their first annual
KEEPING THE BLUES ALIVE award!
It was a shock and a little emotional for me
to hear what Nancy was saying about me and my newsletter.
She and Heather are so have always been so suportive of my efforts
to help the Blues musicians and Blues fans get together in New England.
It warms my heart to know that they planned this for me, it is very rare to receive recognition
for something that I do in the privacy of my office up here in the woods of NH.
I am lucky to have such good friends and allies in my quest to keep the Blues alive.
I know it is not me that keeps the Blues scene thriving, it is the musicians and the fans, my readers
who go out to support our great New England musicians.
It is my pleasure and my priviledge to serve the New England Blues community.
We are a nice group of people, easy going, generous and fun loving. It is all about the music!!
When I got back to my office, I couldn't resist a close up:
