What’s white and covers the ground in winter? OK, that was a stupid question. We’ve seen plenty of the white stuff this season. We played in Ocean City, NJ for New Year’s Eve and we saw a snow man built on the beach! It snowed in Branchburg, NJ on January 7th for our concert at Whiton Elementary School.
Most recently, our show in Alma, Arkansas was cancelled twice due to bad weather conditions and now it will be rescheduled for the fall.
Trout music has recently appeared on two family compilation albums. Sara Hickman (Texas State Musician) releases an album this week called “The Best of Times“.
The CD was created to benefit Theater Action Project, which brings art, music and theater to kids in Central Texas schools. Artists on this CD include Willie Nelson, Marcia Ball, Shawn Colvin, Brave Combo and Robert Earl Keen, to mention a few. Another project we are part of is the 2011 Grammy nominated “Healthy Food For Thought: Good Enough To Eat.” Our song, “Count on Me,” was used as part of this fund raiser. All profits from this project are going to the New York Coalition for Healthy School Food. There’s a stellar list of performers on this CD as well including Julian Lennon, Justin Roberts, Sara Hickman, Tom Chapin, Kathy O’Connell, Gene Shay, Beatle Bob, Sweet Honey and the Rock and others.
We’ve been driving through sunny Texas on clear, ice free roads. Hope you’re staying safe and warm this winter. If you get snowed in, check out our new website design by Sharphue and Haden Interactive. Heck, even if you’re not snowed in, our office has been hard at work revamping troutmusic.com.
