The "renaissance negresse Megabus Tour" Ediccione, if you will. (As it were.)
Monday, September 30, 2013
Thank you so much for your donations to my GoFundMe online fundraiser campaign http://www.gofundme.com/3ik8b8! Because of you, I was able to move out of my apartment after my partner of four years passed away and I went into a serious depression and short hospital stay.
I put my belongings into storage and am now staying with relatives.
I shared with you that I've been having difficulty dealing with my bipolar disorder and various aforementioned life stressors.
I apologize for having waited so long to post an update. It's been very overwhelming to have yet another move, and it's just been very difficult to write regularly.
But I have been taking steps and making progress.
I'm happy to report that I've decided to create a Megabus tour for myself and my music!
I started thinking about this in December 2012, and contacted Rory Sullivan http://rorysullivanmusic.com, another musician doing a Megabus tour, to get ideas. I've also begun networking with folks hither and yon to select where the renaissance negresse is going next.
Next stop: Ann Arbor, Michigan! October 11th through October 28, 2013!
I'm looking to perform a couple of house concerts in that area, so if you or someone you know is interested, contact me via email at cxmusic(at)gmail.com. I'd also be willing to consider other venues including coffeehouses, bars, colleges, universities, etc.
Over the next few days I will be adding details to this announcement, and changing the GoFundMe budget that is the 6-month campaign.
I thank you dearly and muy muchly for your kind and continued support of my art/work, and therefore, life.
In art and community and with much appreciaccione,
(aka Amethyste Rah, aka Amrita Waterfalls)
