Cathbackground Hey friends, in case you haven't heard, I'm taking the month of August off to recover from the surgery I'm having next Monday.  Listen Local and all of our events and shows will continue as usual, with help from good friends.  If you would like to support me during this time PLEASE support the shows in my absense... I will be in your debt.  I'll be a little slower to respond to booking requests and listening to your music for play on The Homegrown Hour over the next 6 weeks, so please be patient.  By late September things should be rocking full force again.  Thanks for your love and good vibes.      Cathryn
