"Songbird of the Sage"
Happy New Year 2009!
My NEW WEBSITE is in progress. I apologize for the lack of attention to this, but I was in WAY over my head. Please check back often, and many improvements will be taking place quickly!
2008 was a year of many new projects! Each of these will eventually have their own pages, but for now, here’s what I’ve been up to!
My CD “Roads to Colorado” is finished and getting rave reviews! It’s got 12 songs and a poem! The theme is “Songs of a Gypsy Homesteader” … the push and pull of traveling and staying home! All the great rhythm guitar tracks are done by the fabulous, Grammy Award winner, Mike Dowling! The title cut is the great song written by Michael Fleming of New West.
2 new CDs in progress! A Western Swing project with my good friend, fabulous fiddler, Ron Jones. It’s coming along, and we’ll let you know when it’s done! I’m working another traveling cowgirl CD!
“Sweethearts in Carhartts” I’m working with Jean Prescott and Yvonne Hollenbeck! This is a fun show of poetry, music and collaborations about Ranch Women! We’ve been well-received at some festivals, are ready to roll! For bookings: Jean at 325-583-2553
Discovery Channel’s MYTHBUSTERS I was delighted to fly to Telluride, CO and see if my yodeling would start an avalanche! You’ll have to watch the episode to see what happens.
Corn Beef Wranglers – Cowboy Music with a Celtic Twist! I’m enjoying playing with this new band that includes Julia Hays and Ron Jones on fiddle and Rock Eggen on accordion and tin whistle. We’ve had some nice concerts and festivals this year, and looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day!
Music of the Civil War – I’m reworking this show for schools and cultural centers with Rex Rideout. He is a great old-time musician, plays a variety of instruments and is a walking historian. We’re ready to play for your school, museum or Red Hat Society!
Liz Masterson Solo - As much as I love collaborations with my musical friends, I also love the simplicity of working alone. I’m continuing and expanding a variety of programs. I especially st enjoy working as an Artist-in-Residence.
Liz Masterson and Sean Blackburn I will always treasure my 18 years with the incredible Sean Blackburn and miss him terribly. I still hear from people who are just learning of Sean’s death, Sept 29, 2005. It’s been a long, hard recovery for all of us who loved him. I am so grateful to all my wonderful friends and colleagues who have encouraged me to keep moving.
