Judy Fjell Newsletter


Greetings to all from Helena, Montana     December 19, 2011


If you're anywhere near Bozeman, Montana, on Thursday night, Dec. 22, I hope to see you at my solstice benefit concert on at the Emerson Center. I'll be playing many songs for the season, including 'In the Winter," a favorite of many from the Bird Return CD. I'll also debut some of the new original guitar pieces I've been working on this past couple of months in preparation for the release of a new solo guitar CD. Concert details are on my website calendar. http://www.judyfjell.com/Events.htm It's a benefit for Hopa Mountain, a nonprofit which provides support for rural and tribal citizen leaders. http://www.hopamountain.org/


While I'm sending out this bit of news, I am wondering, "Are we Facebook friends yet?" I'd love to add you to my friend page. And, you can sign up for the Fans and Friends of Judy Fjell page, another great way to hear more about what I'm up to with camps, retreats, worship services and concerts.


I'll be posting more original songs and performances on YouTube in the near future. My new digital camera is great for shooting HD video (and closeups of birds). I'll let you know when I get the first of my guitar solos up for viewing.

Thanks to many folks who have posted performances from your own video clips, I appreciate it.

SUMMERSING CAMP JUNE 22-29 MONTANA. Women, put it on your calendar now - all ages and abilities are welcome, whether you're a seasoned musician, a serious artist, or a curious dabbler. There are daily classes in guitar, fiddle, bucket drumming, and photography with our wonderful staff - Beth Youngblood, Katie Knight, Stormi Oshun, and myself. In addition to classes, there are always opportunities for good conversation, quiet hikes, and playing music together. Mornings at camp begin with bird and wildflower walks and an Om Tare dance meditation. The food is delicious. Contact me anytime about setting up a monthly payment plan so you can be sure to come to camp.  The flyer is ready, I'll attach it here, too.  Summersing 2012


I'd love to send you an mp3 of "Will You Join Me on This Journey," a song I wrote last summer at the Russell Lockwood UU Leadership School.  It's been quite popular with folks, especially the audiences in Ashland and Roseburg, Oregon, where Crystal Reeves and I played concerts this fall.  If you'd like, I'll also send the lead sheet with lyrics and chords.  Just email me at judyfjell@mac.com with your request. 

I hope that these holidays find you in the best of health and filled with love for friends, family, strangers and this beautiful planet. May we be filled with wonder, humility, and gratitude for being alive.

Thanks for keeping in touch,
