What I Learned in Tennessee

1) Fabric softener can be used as a bug repellant. I also learned to always pack bug spray of some sort.

2) If you're 2 hours away from home and forgotten lipstick, eyeshadow and chapstick can work as lip gloss. 

3) Always pack sunscreen in your gig bag.

4) Tennessee is called the Volunteer State for a reason.

Last night, I played for a birthday party of a 75 year old woman who had always wanted to play the harp in Tennessee. The client and the guests were extremely kind. There were actually a lot of musicians in the party, so there was much interest about how the harp worked, especially from the guest of honor. They were all very appreciative and I was happy to bring a unique element to the party!
