I am posting this from Rita Hosking. She returned from Austin Texas where
she recorded her upcoming CD. She had some outstanding people helping her
with the production and studio work. 

Rita won the Dave Carter Song writing contest in Sisters Oregon this last
September and is booked for the Kate Wolf Festival in June. Things are
looking up for her. She has taken a sabbatical from her teaching job to
promote her song writing.

Happy New Year,
I hope yours is going well.  Music is good--new album is getting mixed (and
sounding great,) and we have some winter shows lined up.  Last weekend's
Jan. 3rd show in Placerville at the Cozmic Cafe was a sold-out, fabulous
crowd, and what a way to start the year!  I hope that those folks in the
area that wanted to come can make the Palms this Sat., or the Sutter Creek
show Feb. 13th.
A huge thank-you to you all who have been so helpful in attending concerts,
purchasing music, and keeping in touch.  You keep us going, and we are
eternally grateful for that.  With hard times befalling many, we know this
is no small feat. Thank you to all of you who continue to support music,
musicians, and venues.
