Greetings & Music News

Hello friends!

I appreciate your patience as I transition the website from Tammerlin to Lee Hunter Music. It's slow going, but it will get there!

The week that Walter Parks and I spent doing the shows with Emmylou Harris was a pretty amazing whirlwind. The halls were beautiful, and the audiences were welcoming. We were so honored to be a part of her Florida tour. It was a pleasure to get to know the members of her band, a remarkable group of musicians. I was really happy to reconnect with my friend, Byron House, who was playing bass with her and singing up a storm. Best of all, Walter and I got to spend some time together. We've been friends for seemingly forever, but haven't had much chance to visit lately. We talked about everything and then some. You can learn more about Walter and his always inventive music at his website at www.walterparks.com/website/.

There are no performances for a while, but there is a lot happening in the new year. I am thrilled that the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens here in Jacksonville has raised the money for a CD recording of "A Vision Awakening", the concert that Philip Pan, Charlotte Mabrey and I created in celebration of the gardens and the St. Johns River. The CD will be a part of an exciting exhibition the Cummer is opening in February 2015 called "Reflections" which will focus on the St. Johns River, the heart and heartbeat of our city. We'll be recording at Gatorbone Studios in Keystone. Kevin Bodge and Barbara Colaciello, who were part of the original performance, will also be part of the recording. Walter and I have applied to some upcoming festivals, and Joey Kerr and I have applied for some performances as well. Mary-Lou (Jean-Luc, Felicie and Stephane) will be here in April, visiting from France. Yeah! Joey and I will be doing some shows with them. I think that's probably enough to keep me out of trouble for a while!

You can keep up with Arvid Smith's performance schedule and his blog musings by visiting his website at www.arvidsmith.com.If you would like to contact Arvid directly, you can e-mail him at arvidsmith@att.net. You can e-mail me directly at leehunterRSG@gmail.com.

During this transition, the Tammerlin website will still be accessible. I will no longer be posting to the Tammerlin Facebook page. I've just launched the "Lee Hunter Music" Facebook page. I'll be posting there. You can find it at www.facebook.com/pages/Lee-Hunter-Music/

I hope to see you out there somewhere. Wishing you all of the joy and peace of the holiday season.

Lee

Some Thoughts

As the days shorten, I find myself taking time to reflect. I am thinking about gratitude. I've seen some huge changes in my life in this last year. I've learned that it's helpful to look at what comes my way as opportunities-to learn, to embrace, to treasure. I don't always accomplish that, but I am trying. I am grateful for so much-devoted friends, supportive family, lovely neighbors, my students who teach me so much and their families, the peace of being on the water or in the woods, the hope and promise of new friendship, the music that fills every corner of my life. Gratitude and grace. Thank you for your enthusiasm and support. I look forward to seeing you in the new year.

Peace, Lee
