Leaving California blues……
Just came home from a wonderful retreat and tour in California. What an experience it’s been! Spreading my songs in America, and being so well received… has been a pleasure. So many nice, welcoming people I’ve met. …..Thanks so much to Brett Perkins and Klaus Caprani, who came on the tour with me…we were a nice trio in the van, as well as on stage… Also was amazed by the dramatic nature and the differences in the California landscape. From the giant redwood trees to the white beaches… and the climate… 25 degrees….. could walk bare feet in the winter.. mind you, they need some rain now.. so a bit frightening in the long run that it’s still so warm….But for my visit.. it was lovely. Now settling in here in Sweden again. Looking forward to work this spring with the trio “My Quiet Companion” doing a recurring tour playing concerts, talking about the process of songwriting, as well as running workshops. Was also nice to come back to see my students at Löftadalens folkhögskola….beautiful songwriter and kindred spirits they are! Enjoyed so much to see my kids again.. they’re my home…. home is good …..but must admit….I miss California already…..
I’m having the most wonderful time in California right now. Spent one week in Ben Lomond on one of Brett Perkins’ songwriter retreats….and it was the best way to start the year. Inspiring to co-write, jam and hang out at these retreats!!! Now heading south… doing a promo tour…playling a show in San Luis Obisbo tonight …..….. and had a great opportunity to play four songs at the radio station KPIG the other day… it’s sort of new to me to play my songs to an English speaking audience… and I feel very touched when they reach people’s hearts…<3 All I can say really is thank you
