Judy Fjell Newsletter <$today>

Good morning, all, from beautiful Montana on October 11, 2013


I wanted to remind you all about the Goin' Over Home CD release concert in Bozeman tomorrow night.

Saturday, October 12, - Weaver Room in the Emerson Center, 111 S. Grand.

Concert starts at 7:30 and tickets are $17. Performing with me will be the wonderful Beth Youngblood on violin and vocals, with a guest appearance by the Bozeman chapter of the Montana Women's Chorus on one of my new favorite songs "Will You Join Me on This Journey." I'll be playing guitar solos from the new CD and singing previously recorded songs as well as new ones in the hopper, ones I will probably be releasing on the next CD. Looks like the title for that CD will be Nobody Else's Dream. Many of you have loved my performances of that powerful, rockin' song in concert the past couple of years.

If you're in the Bozeman area, hope to see you Saturday night. If not, please send the information to your Bozeman area friends. You can send a link from my website for the calendar (October 12) or the home page at www.judyfjell.com


I've been filling many CD orders from the website, thank you so much for responding with your requests for CDs. Some of you have already figured out what great gifts these guitar CDs are, so I've been sending out multiple copies!

Goin' Over Home CDs are now in the following stores:

Helena - Birds and Beasley's, Aunt Bonnie's Books, Piccolo's Music, Hastings

Missoula - Morgenroth Music, Rockin' Rudy's, Ear Candy Music, Hastings

Bozeman - Cactus Records, Hastings

Livingston - Conley's Books and Music

I will be working on placing CDs in stores in Big Timber, Billings, and other cities around Montana. If you have suggestions for other retail outlets, please let me know.

And, if you're wondering if you should buy the new CD at a retail outlet or on the website (some of you so generously think of what benefits me most in terms of profit), please know that ALL SALES ARE HELPFUL! Having CDs in stores helps local businesses, which is a priority of mine. And it helps general promotion of Goin' Over Home and of Judy Fjell as a performer.

Fans have been responding very positively to the 

Previously released CD sales specials at concerts - One CD - $15, Two CDs - $25, Three CDs - $30, Four CDs - $35, Five CDs - $40. 

As soon as I figure out how to manage it at the store on www.judyfjell.com, I'll send out an e-news about it so you can all get in on these deals.


One of the most effective ways of staying in touch with all of you about concerts, news items, new recordings, etc. is through Facebook. I'd like to let you know a way you can really help me out with something that just takes seconds. If you are a member of Facebook, please "friend" me. If you are already my friend, search your friends for Judy Fjell and then ask to join the group "Fans and Friends of Judy Fjell." Anytime I have news especially for my fans and friends, it will be very easy to invite you. As it is now it requires searching through all my friends (1272! I feel blessed) to decide who to invite to concerts, etc. based on geography. Believe it or not, I know most of my 1272 friends personally and enjoy hearing what's going on in your lives. However, having a general promo list makes it so much easier as I work on promotion.

And, in the meantime, thanks so much for signing up for e-news, I appreciate being able to get in touch with you via e-news. And thanks for your ongoing support as technology creates new venues for "getting the word out." It seems like there are new possibilities every day, it's hard to keep up.


I've sent copies of Goin' Over Home (as well as previously released CDs) to KUFM in Missoula where it has received good airplay. Thanks to Michael Marsolek, John Floridis, and Maren Christensen for their support. On KGLT in Bozeman Edis Kittrell and Dave Zimmerman have given my songs generous airplay, too. Dave and I had a great interview last Monday night at KGLT. Thanks, Dave and Edis!

If you have favorite radio programs and stations, please contact me at judyfjell@mac.com with suggestions for other DJs to whom I might send the new CD and previously released ones, too. I appreciate your help!


I am planning 2014 tours in Colorado (early Feb.), Washington and Oregon (late Feb., early March) California (April), Montana (April, May). If you have suggestions for venues or producers please let me know.  

My best to you.  Keep playing music and singing!  Judy
