The next phase

The funding phase is all over, and now I wait for all your dollars to hit my bank account so I can make a deposit on some studio time. Maybe I'll be recording by this time in August! 

Thank you again, everybody. I literally couldn't do this without you.

Kickstarter project fully funded!

I can breathe a sigh of relief: you all have been so generous and lovely, and have put the project over the top. This album is getting MADE. If you haven't preordered and would like to do so, you have until July 15, 2021:

Livestream June 19th

 Hello, friends! I'm having a livestream concert on Saturday, June 19th, at noon Pacific time. It's happening on Facebook, but you don't have to have a Facebook account to watch. (You do have to be logged into Facebook to participate in chat and make hearts fly up across the screen and whatnot, if that's your jam.) It's free, but you're always welcome to click the Kickstarter link and pledge. ❤ If you can't make it, fret not! The performance will be saved on the event page indefinitely. Hope to "see" you "there"!

It's Live!

Hello, friends! Howdy! Hi! Today's the day: the Kickstarter for my new album just went live. Take a look:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/emilygroff/a-celtic-harp-album-by-emily-groff?ref=a622jd

I have a favor to ask, if I may:
Will you share this post with your friends and family? My ask this time around is significantly higher than my last Kickstarter project, as this studio charges a whole lot more for their time and expertise. This means I won't be able to lean as heavily on my own friends and family to get it funded. I'm doing everything in my power to bring it to the world, but word of mouth is where it's at. The more strangers' eyeballs see my project, the more likely I am to succeed.

And a second favor:
Interestingly, Kickstarter has noticed a "bandwagon effect": when projects get funding early in the campaign, visitors to the page are more likely to pledge than if they see a big goose egg before "raised". If you've already decided you're going to pledge or preorder, I'm so grateful, I love you, thank you! I'll be even gratefuller if you can do so on the soonish side. It's a great way to multiply your contribution.

And wish me luck! Woo! Here we go!

New Album

Hello, friends! The time has come around again, and I'm working on a new album. More to the point, I'm working on a Kickstarter campaign to get the dollarz to work on a new album. The music? Oh, I've had that in my pocket for more than two years. Six songs and six instrumentals, practiced and performed until they've sunk deep into my heart and bones. It's putting it on a CD that's the expensive part. Most of those dollarz will go to the wizards at Empty Sea Studios, who did such a bang-up job on Joy's Coming Fast.

On June 1st I'll be posting again with a link to the Kickstarter page. I will be overjoyed if you click it, and out of my mind with glee if you choose to back the project, either by preordering the album or pledging in any amount that pleases you. There are rewards: sheet music, backer credit on the CD, and for the high rollers, a house concert anywhere in a two hour radius of Bainbridge Island! (I'm willing to travel farther afield if you can cover transportation separately.) 

I'll also be posting soon with the details for a celebratory live-streaming event. Date TBA. Stay tuned!
