I had the opportunity to meet Becky Schlegel at the Mid-Winter Bluegrass Festival in Northglenn, CO. We went to her song writing workshop and later we saw her perform. We sat right up front and my girls were so enthralled to hear her voice and watch her play her guitar. It was just Becky, her guitar and Brian her guitar/banjo man (depending on the song).
She has the most beautiful voice! Some have compared her to Jewel. I could have listened to her all night!
I have imbedded this player that she shares from her website, so that you can hear her gorgeous voice. I think my favorite's so far are "Lonely" and "So Embarrassing" because they really focus on her voice.
At the end of the night, she spotted me and my girls in the crowd and came over to us. She said hello to my girls and thanked them for being able to stay awake through her set that was late in the evening and full of ballads. They were so in awe and didn't know what to say to her. She complimented them and told them how pretty they were and how sweet.
It made our night and we were so thankful to have gotten to talk with her in person and hear her beautiful voice and wonderful guitar.
The entire weekend was full inspiration. Inspiration to open your mind, take a new perspective, try something you're not sure you can do, believe in yourself and your art.....whatever that art form is.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
