Dear Friends:  

It’s finally spring here in New England, and we are all a bit dizzy with the warmer weather and all the beautiful blooming trees!

KERRVILLE FOLK FESTIVAL: I am heading off to perform at The Kerrville Folk Festival’s on Wed June 3.  I’ll be in the round with wonderful songwriters: Him & Her, Rob Lytle, Doug Coppock, and Martin Swinger.  Hope to see you there! Wear mud boots and your favorite hippy clothing!
 


VERMONT ARTIST RESIDENCY: I am honored to have been invited to participate in an Artist Residency at The Marble House Project in Dorset, VT.  I am one of forty-five juried artists coming from around the globe this season.  Residents are writers, dancers, musicians, visual artists, choreographers, composers and more.  I will be working and presenting on location from June 15 – July 2, 2015.  I’m so excited to have carved out a bit of time for writing, creating, and being inspired!

SIRIUS RADIO SUBSCRIBERS: I had the shock of my life (OK, that’s an exaggeration) last month when I opened my mail and found a check for over $150 in airplay royalties.  My last quarterly check was $2.52, which is about average.  If you are a Sirius subscriber, please drop them a note to request more Bernice Lewis!  Then you’ll be able to say you helped put my daughter through school!

RAFT THE GRAND CANYON: Our raft trip on Colorado River through the Grand Canyon from May 6-13, 2016 is full.  Drop me a line to be on the waiting list. We currently have the option to fill another boat, so there may be a space for you.

SONGWRITING BLOG:  Jamie Anderson, good friend and supreme performer/road warrior, recently invited me to be a guest contributor to her blog.  Have a look!

UPCOMING TOURS: I’m currently in the process of planning my 2015/16 touring schedule…summer and early fall in New England, November on the West Coast, and early December in the mid South.  Stay tuned, and be sure to share venue ideas and contacts.  I truly couldn’t do this without you!

 

ACOUSTIC LIVE: I was honored to be the subject of this month’s feature article in Acoustic Live, a wonderful music publication out of NYC.

YOU TUBE:  New Videos! Hope you enjoy! Wings by Bernice Lewis Filmed at The Booth Theater in Danville, PA The Itty Bitty Bladder Club by The Ladies Auxiliary Ukulele Orchestra (with Bernadette McMahon and Dan Broad) Medicine by Mariah Colorado (with Dan Broad)

ARTIST EDUCATOR:  Most of you know that I often go to schools to talk about my family’s emigration from Germany in 1940, during WWII.  I am honored to be represented by Arts Are Essential, a booking agency for Artist/Educators.

Hope our paths cross soon – Bernice
