Dear Friends,

 

I was chosen as one of ten finalists in the Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest.  The song that I entered, “Greenbrier County” is up on my myspace if you want to check it out. (www.myspace.com/norajanestruthers)

I competed against these other songwriters/performers on Thursday afternoon and did not win, but I did get to play in a song circle on the Elks Park Stage, on the KOTO radio,  and….ON THE MAIN STAGE ON SATURDAY afternoon in between THE JERRY DOUGLAS BAND and YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND.  It was awesome.

Check me out here or on youtube.

Also, a Big Howdy and thanks to our neighbors in “Camp Little Del”—you made our Telluride so warm even when it was so cold outside.

 

Thanks for reading friends.

Sincerely,

Nora Jane

Dear Friends,

This past Saturday night my band and I made our debut at The Purple Fiddle in Thomas, West Virginia.  If you’ve never been and you’re a band, book yourselves there!  If you’ve never been and your a music lover, go there for a weekend!  It’s a restaurant, hostel, bar, and music venue all rolled up in a charming victorian house.  
The show was great.  Check out some of the video from the show on youtube.
Thanks for reading friends.
Sincerely,
Nora Jane

Oh My!

Dear Friends,

What a joy!  Helping a pal bake pizza (homemade dough and everything) is one of life’s most delicious and relaxing pleasures–especially when your friend knows how to make the pizza and you can just follow directions and munch on the shredded mozzarella.  
And the aprons are just so practical!
This music party was organized because Emily’s mom was in town visiting and –since she and Emily are both fantastic musicians who specialized in harmony singing–I was not about to let her get away from Nashville without meeting and singing with her.  It was a wonderful time and we had some truly rocking three-part harmonies before the evening was through.
Thanks for reading friends!
Sincerely,
Nora Jane

Dear Friends,

Vintage shopping in New York City is awesome.  I bought this sweet 1950’s zip-up-the-front, white linen with strawberry’s on the pockets, for $20 bucks on Thursday and then I wore it Thursday night at my dad and my Dirt Road Sweetheart appearance on the Kings County Opry!  Wow!  Talk about a tax write-off that’s been put to good use!
Dad’s got on a red tie–he’s so stylish.  
Thanks for reading friends!
Sincerely,
Nora Jane
