My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

The Further Adventures of "Wise Old River."

The month of April has been so busy for myself and my family. We have been in the process of being transferred to another town in Virginia where my husband will serve one church full-time and I will serve another part-time. This will mean a move for us. So we have been busy meeting with the boards of the churches, showing the parsonage to the new folks taking Jim’s place and going to see the parsonage where we will be moving. We have also begun to pack up things that we aren’t using and gathering things for a yard sale. We are seeking to simplify and keep only what we need and use.



In the midst of all this, our band Wise Old River has been playing in Johnson City and around the Bristol, TN/VA area. We had a great opportunity to play for Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion's yearly WDVX Blue Plate Special 89.9 of Knoxville, TN at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol, TN. That was a lot of fun!


 Jamen, our lead singer/songwriter, guitarist has written 10 new songs that we have been busy learning and rehearsing. We went in the studio Big Time Audio in Jonesborough, TN with Martin Walters as our Engineer/Producer on April 1st…NO FOOLING, HA-HA! It was a pleasure working with him. We benefited from his expertise and some really great barbeque pork sandwiches for lunch!!! We recorded a "live studio album" with the ten new original songs and two original previously recorded songs from DE NOVO our first CD recorded 2009. The decision to record them again was because we now have the amazing addition of Stephen Marshall on bass. Stephen adds a whole new dimension to these songs. Here are some pictures:



It's been a very wonderful time and we are excited that tomorrow we will have our new CD, MY LAND to sell at our shows. You can give a few of our tunes a listen on our offical website Wise Old River and it will soon be available on CD Baby, itunes and Amazon.com.
 
I hope that you will check out our music on our website and keep in touch ~ Til next time...
 
Peace, Jeanne
