    My new CD has just been released!  This Could Be Love is a compilation of songs that I've written, arranged and sung.  It includes a wide range of styles, running from Country, to Blues, to Pop to Folk, all in traditional style but given contemporary treatment.  And, of course, the easy listening voice weaves it all together.  The CD is $20 and will be available on my website and through all the usual lines of distribution.  Right now you can get it directly from me through the end of July for $15.  Let me know if you want one at the reduced price.    betty@bettymorrell.com  703-586-3734

    hello folks!

    I was born in Washington DC.  I have been creating music for almost 40 years.  I currently have 54 albums but mostly I am completely unknown. My stuff includes lots of jazz, blue grass, rock, piano sonatas, classical guitar, avant garde jazz, dance, orchestra, synthesizer, etc. I also have hundreds of art images that I created.

    Can anybody recommend open mics in the Silver Spring/Takoma/DC area?  There are so many musicians in that area, yet almost all the open mics listed here are in VA or way up in Rockville.  Thanks!

    I play guitar, (and some fretless bass). Interested in joining an artist for an upcoming set/showcase. If the chemistry is right, willing to meet, learn 3 to 5 tunes, and "support" your sound. Experienced in songwriter genre and instrumentals. My website: www.philipdestefano.com will give you more details.   Thank you.

    Singer/songwriter and SAW Board member Paige Powell, who is also host for three (!) SAW-sponsored open mics in our DC Metro Area will perform an Autumn-themed concert on Friday, October 21st at the Church at Clarendon, 1210 N. Highland St. in Arlington. Although she will play  a few Christian-based songs, Paige has a good sense of humor. She does everything she can to entertain everyone with good stories about "Thanksgiving with Real Indians" in her song titled "Too Hung Over" for example! The no-cost evening includes FREE snacks and beverages and if FREE street parking isn't available, you can park across the street for only $5.00. Mention to Paige that you're a SAW member and you get a FREE CD!

    The Gazebo Jam at Lake Needwood is an acoustic song-circle type event that take place most Sundays at the Gazebo at Lake Needwood.  Search "Gazebo Jam" to join the Facebook Group and stay up on the jam news and get location info etc.  But basically this coming sunday is the annual picnic -- from noon til ??? It's pot luck -- bring a dish, a bev, something for the grill or whatever -- and your smile and your axe if you want to jam --
