Greetings & Music News
I know this may look a little strange, but I'm not a web designer, so this is what I have to use for a newsletter right now. I appreciate your patience through this transition from Tammerlin to Lee Hunter Music.
I am very excited about some upcoming collaborations, and I feel very fortunate to have these enormously talented people to work with. First, Walter Parks and I had a fantastic time opening for Emmylou Harris at the Times Union Center back in July. She and her band gave an incredible performance! My good friend, Byron House (who played on a couple of Tammerlin CDs) was in her band. That was a nice surprise! It was great to see Byron again. It had been a while. And it was wonderful to reconnect with Maple Byrne, her road manager, who I have known for many years. Lots of the production crew were friends from the Magnolia Music & Events days, so it was like a great big reunion. And to add to the fun, Walter and I were really well received...so well that Emmylou invited us to open for her in Miami in November, and there are some other dates in the works with her, too!
In the mean time....I just learned that I am one of 5 finalists in the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull Songwriting Contest-quite an honor. The finals are this Saturday night at Jack Rabbits here in Jacksonville, FL. The fabulous guitar player, mandolin player, singer and songwriter, Joey Kerr will be accompanying me that night. It looks like Joey and I are going to begin to collaborate on a number of projects. You can hear more of and about Joey at his website at www.reverbnation.com/joeykerr. You can learn more about the contest, the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull Festival and the Jacksonville Songwriter organization that sponsors it at jaxlive.com/events/2nd-annual-gram-parsons-guitar-pull-songwriting-contest/
In October, I'll be heading for the Greater Good Music and Art Festival in Pensacola. The wonderful guitarist and fiddler, Clayton Park, will accompany me for that set. It will be fun to work with Clatyon again! The festival has moved to a brand new location that looks like it's going to work out beautifully. It's on the waterfront in downtown Pensacola. For information and tickets, go to www.greatergoodmusicandart.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You can e-mail me directly at email@example.com.
And, for now, the Tammerlin website isn't going anywhere. You can still reach us through the website and keep up with what we're doing. We would, of course, love to hear from you! You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, you can visit us on our Facebook page at facebook.com/pages/Tammerlin/ You are welcome to post comments and photos and invite your friends.
I look forward to seeing you out there somewhere!

Hello all. It has been a journey, an adventure and a course of learning that has enriched my life in uncountable ways. I will continue to draw from the lessons learned as I press on. Over the twenty-one years I have taken my life’s work to places I could not have imagined and performed with artists whom I had theretofore only experienced from the audience. I feel strongly that I have performed and composed some of the best music of my life through the Tory Voodoo/ Tammerlin creative lens.
I have admired Lee’s drive, determination and sound way of doing things in service to her art, and I know her new ventures will succeed as well. As for me, I do feel that when the lessons have been learned and the goals have been met, it is time to move on. I do intend to keep active as well and move head on into some long awaited new vistas.
Peace and Praises to all our wonderful friends. Stay Tuned…………Arvid
As I think back on the more than two decades that Arvid and I spent traveling and playing music together, I have to say that it has been a remarkable adventure. I look at the friends we've made, from all over the world, and the places we've seen, and I feel so fortunate. Thank you, Arvid, for your encouragement, your inspiration, your patience and your belief in me. I would not have accomplished what I have accomplished if it were not for Arvid's talent and support. Everything has a life-span. It's important to recognize when it's time to move on. I am excited for Arvid as he heads down new musical paths and wish him all the success he so much deserves.
I know that I stand on all that we've done and look forward to going where my paths will lead me. I am thrilled to be collaborating with so many talented friends in the coming weeks and months. Please stay in touch....Lee
