Review for Annette Conlon:

Conlon will be performing songs from her critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, along with songs from her new album scheduled for release in 2018.

Says Conlon, “I am excited to share my love for animals and veganism, through music, with folks across the country and to show them how easy it is to live more compassionately, from what you eat, to what you wear, while helping folks make the connection that our animal friends are not food.” This musical activism helps raise awareness of animal cruelty and factory farming and her tour helps elevate this awareness with sponsors in fashion and food. 

The Compassionette Tour will wind through North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. 

Husband Doug Conlon will accompany Annette on the tour, playing mandolin, banjo, and guitar, while providing background harmonies. Annette will be playing her Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor guitar and her Seagull Artist Studio Concert Hall guitar. Both instruments are made from sustainably-sourced woods and found tone-woods, and the Bedell is 100 percent vegan, containing no animal products. (Annette is endorsed by both Bedell and Seagull). 

The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in Conlon's debut, and Country Music People ranked Life, Death, and the Spaces Between #3 on a ‘Best Albums of 2015’ list, praising Annette Conlon as “a major talent” who “created a moving, intimate, magical melodic country trip.” Currently working with three-time Grammy winner Alf Rodenas on her second album, Conlon promises a “sweeter, happier, Ameri-Folk/Rock” effort that “delves ever deeper into my human heart.”

Roy Exum: Kids Are Still Funny

I have never seen nor heard of a child actually getting one’s “head pinched off” but by modern-day standards the threat just switched in overdrive. There are children in our communities who haven’t been to school for six long days and the brutal temperatures drove the little darlings to inside where they most predictably stirred up all manner of mayhem. Back when I was in Elementary ... (click for more)
