In Spring of 2017, I was delighted to learn that I had been nominated for the "SAMMIE" awards in the Folk category. The SAMMIES are a music award honoring artists who live in the Sacramento area, sponsored by one of the local newspapers, the Sacramento News & Review.
They opened voting to the public, so we put the link in the newsletter and on social media - and you all surprised me again when I found out I won the award! I was unable to be at the ceremony, but I just picked up the trophy. Sincere thanks to everyone who supported me.
