About Me

My photo
Who? Me??? I am a songwriter. I am fortunate enough to be able to sing most of them as well. LOL. Well, some would scrunch there faces when I open up, but most folks like the songs well enough to forgive my less than stellar voicing. Writing songs and stories brings me great joy. If I get a major hit, I'd feel no differently about my writing as I do now, with my local following. I think that is the trick to a truly happy life. Being satisfied with the wonderful gifts that you have. Any thing else after those, well that's the gravy! Just remember, Food well cooked and seasoned can taste great without the gravy! But the best gravy in the world can't cover up a foul tasting portion! So, my philosophy is to try to be good at all that I do, and at the end of the day, feel my life is complete because I've lived the life I set out to have!

Up coming Festivals!

These are some of the Festivals that we Florida Folkies are familiar with.  But, for those who are just visiting this blog to find out where and when these fests are, please click on the links to follow them to the sites.  Remember, if you are an artist, the Will Fest due date for applications has passed, as it needed to be in by August 15th!   But, they are running a NEW songwriting contest this year which is being headed by Frank Thomas and Billy Dean!!!  Submissions need to be in by December 31st.    You can down load the form at www.willmclean.com     The Florida Folk Festival and The Sarasota Folk Festival have links to the side bar on the right side of the blog.  More links to come!  Keep checking back!!

What is New!

Just a quick heads up as I begin working on the project of accumulating all the folk artists and festivals and venues on this blog page.  If you don't see yourself on this blog, and you are a Florida Folk Singer/Songwriter, please don't be offended.  I may not have gotten to you yet, or, I may not know you yet. This type of information takes time to do, linking pictures with viable websites for people.

Hang in there, and if you are interested in being on this page then contact me on my facebook page in messages.  I am there under the name Norine Mungo.   Next posts will be about new venues opening up for artist to perform at around the state.  Plan your tours and house concerts from these stopovers!  Folk On!!!
