What I am doing...

Summer has become my favorite time. I know I must be nuts, but I love having my children around me.  I know how precious time is when you have them home. I was reminded on July 1st just how precious they are.  My eldest daughter joined the Army and she went to BootCamp.  While I am very excited for her, our family dynamics has changed.  It just won't be the same. Still, life moves on... the pace is steady and moves continually.  I am now preparing for two gigs.  One on August 24th, at the Mission Viejo Farmers Market, in Mission Viejo CA.  I am also preparing for a concert on September 9th, at the Mission Viejo Civic Center. Fiona Joy Hawkins and Trysette are my good friends from Australia.  They are here in the USA bringing their show.  They are on tour here.  Here are some links for you to check out and if you feel like joining us.. you are quite welcome to come

Mission Viejo Farmers Market 11am - 1pm

Two Grand I'm Yours Tour - Featuring Fiona Joy Hawkins and Trysette. Kori Linae Carothers musical guest.

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
