I have been remiss in keeping up with events here on the website.
I played the Barberville Spring Frolic the last weekend in March. My first *real* folk festival performances. To repeat a comment I made about a photo of me there with my “Performer” name tag, “I’m going to be buried wearing that tag.”
Saturday, July 12th I will be performing around 1:00PM at The Farm in Brooksville, FL about 125 highway miles from Rancho Cammack. It is a benefit show for some good friends trying to deal with some unexpected medical bills.
I have applied to be a performer at the Lake County Folk Festival in Eustis, FL which occurs October 11th and 12th in downtown Eustis.
I have also applied to be a performer at the Barberville Fall Jamboree, which occurs November 1st and 2nd at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement in Barberville, FL.
I will update the site here and add those to my Reverbnation show calendar (the thing that feeds that little map on the right margin) to include the dates and times if I happen to get selected for those upcoming festivals.
I will also be playing at The Art of Everything festival the last Saturday in October at Renninger’s Flea Market and Antique Mall in Mount Dora, FL.
When my friend, Mike Whinnery returns to the area after his annual pilgrimage to Ohio, we are going to see what we can work up for live performances. I applied to both festivals as “Brett Cammack & Friends” with Mike in mind. I’m a much stronger singer than I am a guitar player and I think that collaborating with someone as experienced as a musician and as a performer will not only improve my opportunities to book performances, but will also improve my guitar playing abilities faster than if I go it alone.
That’s about it for right now. I’m pondering songwriting, but I don’t know if I actually inherited that particular gene from anybody. Tomorrow is the July 4 and we’re looking forward to spending the afternoon with some friends at their annual holiday jam.
I hope everyone has (or had) a safe and happy Independence Day celebration. I promise to update this site more often. I promise!
