June – It’s About Love…

The month of June is famous for love. Heck, it’s named for the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of marriage.

Plutarch, a Greek biographer and essayist who later became a Roman citizen, and Ovid, a Roman poet, both wrote about how June was favorable for weddings – a theory that lives on today.

Since June is about love, it’s very appropriate that Julie already has much of the month filled with live shows because Julie LOVES to perform live.

And if you love great Americana music, then your June can be lovely too – just check out one of Julie’s shows. She’ll be troubadouring around Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina from the 1st to the 30th with many stops along the way.

And while you’re at the show, be sure to request that Julie plays her song “It’s About Love”. It’s her Mom’s (and my) favorite JG song.

What If?

What If Julie was getting ready to release a new album?
And What If she worked with some great musicians to record ten great new songs for it?
And What If you could help get this album released?
And What If you were to guess the name of the new album?
Stay tuned for more details!

A Constellation of June Shows

music headshot copyAnd here comes June. Summer weather starts up in earnest, even if summer doesn’t officially start until the Solstice on the 20th.

The sun rises in the constellation Taurus at the start of June, and in Gemini at the end of the month. (But people born in early June are Geminis. Shouldn’t they be Taurus? I’m confused.)

With the warm weather, the longer days, and the sun in Taurus and Gemini, it’s no wonder June is THE month for summer vacations.

Except for Julie Gribble. Vacation? Julie don’t need no stinking vacation.

Julie’s already got a busy month of shows scheduled around the Southeast. Here’s the current list. The Calendar page will always have any updates.

  • June 3, 7:00 pm – Polo Golf And Country Club, Cumming, GA
  • June 4, 12:00 pm – Canine Pet Rescue Bikes Barks BBQ, Dacula, GA
  • June 5, 1:00 pm – Wing And Rock Festival, Woodstock, GA
  • June 10, 7:30 pm – Pleasure Is All Wine, Pelham, AL
  • June 11, 12:30 pm – River Market, Chattanooga, TN
  • June 11, 6:30 pm – Pavilion Coffee House, Madison, TN
  • June 18, 1:30 pm – Chateau Meichtry Vineyards, Talking Rock, GA
  • June 25, 12:00 pm – Yonah Mountain Winery, Cleveland, GA

I’m a little concerned about Julie, who is an Aries, performing while the sun is rising in Taurus and Gemini, but I trust she’ll be able to work through it.
