Thanks to The Broads!!
In less than one year my show Downward Facing Broad has grown from a show I barely had developed to a tight 90 minutes with music.
We started last summer — with 3 ever-changing performances at Ellena Harris-Fleury‘s! And with a hometown crowd on my side the show grew and– the CBC Radio taped a portion of it as my special and that was great. ( Tracy Rideout championed it as did Joan Melanson) Now we have a 90 minute show!!
Why have these tickets sold? Not just because of me.
Because I believe of broads like you.
Especially the one of a certain age.
Women, my age, got behind this show.
No, Not male bashing, here. No. My director was a young wonderful man called Christian Smith.
And Alan Rankin who brings in many concerts to Kingston helped coach me to what kind of locations to play!
People like Len Whalen listened to me while I rehearsed.
Yep, the woke men have helped. ( and why is someone my age saying “woke” anyway?)
But its been older women, (especially in small communities,) that have become the advocates of this show.
People who found the money, the sponsors and the way.
People like you!
Sometimes your business did the media.
Sometimes you brought a gaggle of women. ( repeatedly)
Sometimes you brought your lovers and your husbands. Sometimes you brought both!! 🙂
(Yes, it is for men!! Why do we ask if a female can entertain a guy?)
What has surprised me the most is how young men and women have related to this. As an older woman, I am looking to stay visible in the world. For them, they are trying to find a way in. To fit. To contribute.
And as the summer of 2019 is now underway, we thank you!
See Kim and I have a lovely 6 city tour planned for the fall around Ontario. And this material is going to be released on CD Baby in Oct.
And its because of the wonderful support of people like yourself.
You are a great broad!
Last show this summer is on Amherst Island with $5 to each ticket going to the Back Kitchen!
