Kate Monaghan – Live on air! Songwriting contest winner!

Hey friends -

Sorry it has been a little while since I’ve updated you! I have been busy sending out CDs, making new musical friends, winning a few things and getting some shows on the calendar. I’m excited that I’ve got lots of good news to share with you.

On Air!
Tomorrow (March 20, 2012) I’ll be performing live on WDET (101.9FM) on the Craig Fahle show in support of the ACLU Benefit this coming Saturday. Tune in between 11am and 12pm. The show will also be aired again between 8pm and 9pm.

Ann Delisi’s Essential Music Listening Party – Ann Delisi flat out rocks. She has been amazing to me and I can’t wait to be the featured artist after her May listening party. Come hang out with us at The Majestic Cafe in Detroit, MI from 7pm to 9pm. Full band!

FolkGalore (http://folkgalore.com/)
“Story. Music. Redemption.” I am so thrilled to be performing as part of the FolkGalore festival. One of my absolute favorite bands, Over the Rhine, will be the headlining act and I’m honored to be on the same bill. I’ll be playing on Saturday, June 30 at the Bad Bear Brewery (I hear they have a delightful outdoor beer garden). Additional details on this cool 3-day festival are available at the link.

“Waiting” was a finalist/ prize winner in the Great Lakes Songwriting Contest!! You can read my answers to “Four Questions for Songwriters” here: http://www.greatlakessongwritingcontest.net/p/kate-monaghan.html

“Reach Back”, one of my new songs, was the January 2012 winner of the Black Crystal Cafe Songwriting Contest. Plans are in the works to get a YouTube video up of this song so you can hear it and let me know what you think before it sees the studio.

Alright, I think that wraps up my update for now! Until the next one, thanks for listening and keep living :)
Love, Kate
