A Letter from Dirk

Dirk Hamilton

Ciao, Amici!

   Happy New Year, everybody! In case you haven’t gotten the news, the Kickstarter campaign for Sara Terry’s “FOLK” documentary was successful! A lot of you guys answered the call and contributed, and for this I send you my sincere and deep thanks. I’m touched by your generous support. I also want to thank my friend and webmaster Joan Carlson who gracefully dropped everything she was doing to help push forward this cause. Now all we have to do is wait a year or two for the film to be edited and released. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of guy I am.

   I’m leaving Saturday for California where I hope to record all the tracks for my next project, a solo studio album of all new songs. All my life I’ve wanted to make a solo album. God willing, this will be it.

   Later in the month I’ll be going to Italy to put together the first studio album of “Dirk Hamilton and the Bluesmen”. This is also something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I just hope my Italian manager can find me enough work to finance this trip. A generous friend miraculously appeared to donate his frequent flier miles to make the trip possible for me. I feel blessed. If you ask me how I’ve been able to be a fulltime musician all these years, I’d be hard pressed to say. On the way home from Europe I’ll be stopping in London to do a show there, speaking of blessings. It will be March 31st, in case you’re in the neighborhood.

   I’ll keep you up on it all in future email blasts. Blessings to EVERYBODY! I hope ya’ll in California can make it to at least one of the shows. It’s not a show when people don’t show. Thanks for being wherever you are.

Big Blessings to One and All!

Dirk
