Greetings & Music News

Hello friends!

I appreciate your patience as I transition the website from Tammerlin to Lee Hunter Music. It continues to be slow going, actually, it's not going at all right now, but it will!

Joey Kerr and I will be playing our first sets together at the sweet little Florida festival, the Will McLean Festival in Dade City this month. We've been working on some of my stuff and some of Joey's stuff. We're having a great time. Joey's playing brings a fresh approach to my songs that I'm just loving. Great slide guitar work, some mandolin, too, and nice vocals! We're just getting started. Watch out! I'm looking forward to doing more gigs with Joey.

I'll be hanging out at Suwannee Springfest for the weekend helping my good friend, Joe Craven. Joe will be doing a presentation for the band students at Suwannee Middle School after the festival. That program is sponsored by the Live Oak Music and Art Foundation, an organization that I've had the privilege to be involved with for many years. More friends will be visiting in April! Mary-Lou (Jean-Luc, Felicie and Stephane) will be here from France. Yeah! Joey and I will be doing some shows with them, too. Just announced-Walter Parks and I will be doing a set together at the Gamble Rogers Festival in May. We're excited about that and already exploring some really interesting material!

For all of you Pandora subscribers, you can now listen to Tammerlin's "No Small Thing" CD on Pandora!

During this transition, the Tammerlin website will still be accessible. I will no longer be posting to the Tammerlin Facebook page. I've 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.

Lee

Some Thoughts

The CD, "A Vision Awakening" is now playing at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens here in Jacksonville. The opening for the exhibition, "Reflections: Artful Perspectives on the St. Johns River" was held February 24. It was an incredible evening that brought together the arts community, the environmental community and so many who care about the St. Johns River. The art work in the exhibition is quite stunning. What an honor to be a part of such an inspiring group of people.

Last weekend I took part in a rally in St. Augustine to protest seismic testing for oil deposits off the NE Florida coast. The testing produces underwater blasts every 10 seconds that will without a doubt harm or kill hundreds of thousands of marine animals, including sea turtles, dolphins and whales-all in search of what is estimated to be an inconsequential amount of oil. I was moved to see so many young people participating-so passionate, so eloquent. I find myself focusing more on my environmentalist side these days than I have for some time. I'm enjoying that reawakening. Caring for the earth and all of her beings has always been a passion for me.

Of course, I'm always looking for the next project. There are several ideas in the works in which I hope to combine music, my writing and caring for the planet. I'll be sharing more as plans progress!

Be well, Lee
