Well, unfortunately I did not get selected as the recipient of the Easthampton Arts Treasury Grant through the Easthampton City Arts+ council. It was a bit of an uphill battle for me, as I am new resident of Easthampton, and I was also on the younger side of both the applicants and the attendees. Be that as it may I felt the whole evening was a great success and I am proud of the piece I performed during the presentations, a heavily processed improvisation on Woody Guthrie’s “Pretty Boy Floyd” and I still plan to write the string trio with electric guitar in which I was seeking funding for. I also hope this was the first event of many that I participate in with the Easthampton City Arts+ group!
