Mid-September Live Denton Music

September 16, 2014

By Kathy Edwards McFarland and Mr. Joe Pinson

…and all that Jazz!

Mr.  Joe writes: “This is a song that I wrote a few years back that has been adopted as the official song of the Southwestern Region of the American Music Therapy Association. It was part of my final presentation at T.W.U. You can hear students singing in the background:”

Whoa, Nellie, what a week – and weekend… two, count ’em two music festivals send tremors through the streets of Denton. With the cooler Oaktopiaposterweather and beautiful walking paths (asphalt and lawn) Dentonites will have difficulty choosing where to go and what to listen to. With flawless time management, one may catch some of everything … denton_blues_festival_2014_265x150__medium
