Marian Call’s European Adventure QuestMonday, July 23rd 2012 by Pat
Marian’s Kickstarter has been wildly successful and I want to thank everyone who has helped to fund her project. She’s going to be touring a good chunk of Europe, recording a live album, creating some new songs, and doing some incredible covers of old favorites (Muppets, TMBG, Beatles!)
She’s also getting herself a much needed laptop and a few other bits of essential recording equipment to keep her music business alive and I’m happy to see so many people supporting her in her work. This is patronage.
It’s not pure charity though, far from it. If you’ve pledged, you’re getting much more in return than coffee mugs and T-shirts. The rewards at various levels are incredibly generous. The live album and “Got to Fly” for $15. Digital downloads of all her music for $35 including a bunch of stretch goal cover songs. A full length original song for a mere $2000!!?! Plus that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you supported the arts very directly and immediately.
Ok. That’s my pitch on behalf of someone I care about a great deal. There’s just over a day left and I hope you’ll all consider making a pledge or raising the level of your existing pledge as the last few hours tick away. Thank you.
