Your Birthday Present From Me!

This Tuesday, August 21, is my birthday! And I want to celebrate by giving you a present!

For 24 hours, starting Monday at midnight, I will set the download price for all seven of my CDs on CDBaby to $0.

Yes, you heard right - free music for YOU and your friends on MY birthday!

And in case you would care to get me a little something, here's my wish list:

  • Download some free music on Tuesday - it'll boost my sales numbers.
  • Post a review on CDBabyAmazon, or iTunes. It can be just one sentence about your favorite Monty Harper CD. 
  • Finally, drop by and say hi. I'll be "hanging out" with friends on Google+ Tuesday afternoon. I'd love to see you there!

Thanks for being a fan!

Bella Vista

Yesterday I did my very last library program for Summer 2012 in Bella Vista, Arkansas. All my programs this summer went really really well, and this one was no exception. The husband of the librarian is an OSU alum and big fan so we were greeted in the parking lot by the "Pistol Pete Mobile" which Lisa took a photo of and posted to facebook.

My sister and niece live nearby, so we brought my mom along on the trip and made a weekend of it. We all toured the Crystal Bridges art museum yesterday - very cool. A fun end to a fun summer!!

Don't forget to check out the slideshow I posted on YouTube - a photo retrospective of my "Sing-Along Slumber Party" summer tour. Please share it with anyone you think should book me for a program during the coming school year. Thanks!!

Lisa captured this angle from a seat on the floor with the audience. Is this really what I look like to the kids?

Roundy Round!

Home Schoolers at the Library

Each summer the Stillwater library chooses a top reader from each elementary school in town, plus one homeschooler, to receive a certificate for one free classroom visit by Monty Harper - that's me!

This year our home school winner is just getting ready to move out of state, so we quickly set up our visit at the library, earlier this week. The kids were great - and I love doing a more informal mini-concert with a small group. I look forward to visiting the other winners once school starts!!

Right now it's off to Arkansas for my very last summer reading program of 2012 - at the Bella Vista Library, 10:30 AM on Saturday (8/4/12). 

Group photo.

Here is our top reader, checking out the guitar after the program, with her "I Love Music" shirt on. Love it!
