Heather Blush ...
Great story this week from my Inglewood neighbour and Music Mile musician, Heather Blush...We have watched in awe as musicians like Matt Masters with Curbside Concerts stepped up their creativity and found an entrepreneurial door to walk through in the pandemic. Heather has come up with the unique Songbelly idea of handcrafted teddy bears that sing lullabies by her and perhaps some other local songwriters...This link lets her explain and I hope many readers might decide to support her.
Please note … you have received this newsletter simply because at some point our paths crossed. It might have been through my engagement practice, my pottery practice, my song writing practice or maybe I just met you on the street in my capacity as the Street Corner Mayor of the Music Mile here in Calgary.
Please enjoy and give me feedback on how I can do better. You can email me directly at email@example.com If this sort of thing just annoys you, please hit the unsubscribe button! If you think someone else might enjoy it please pass it along and perhaps consider subscribing yourself.
Please have safe, home based celebrations at this time of year.
