Howdy Music friends!
How's it going out there?Things are great here.I'm going to jump ahead and tell you all about THE BEST DREAM COME TRUE SHOW EVER!!!
Imagine THE BARN JAM here at Awendaw Green www.awendawgreen.com on a Friday night- My birthday, March 29th!! Yep, it's true- there is a special birthday jam with my band Firework show, Josh Roberts and The Hinges, www.youtube.com/watch and recently added artists Bret Mosley www.youtube.com/watch and Finnegan Bell. www.reverbnation.com/finneganbellmusic
Here's a little about March 29th Owl-Rath Fest
The Barn Jams at Awendaw Green have become the Southeast's indie/grass-roots connecting hinge for musicians who are making hardcore culture shifts in American music today.
Josh Roberts and The Hinges, affectionately known to fans as J-RATH are teaming up again with Danielle Howle + Firework Show to bring you Owl-Rath Fest. This will be a night of unadulterated rock and roll face melting, combined with the most subtle of harmonic moments.
Owl-Rath Fest musicians will conjure the ancient musical conversation about the celebration and calling up of creativity in it's truest form of action. Spread far and wide, and share wildly, this call of musical ohm with all of your people. Get your advanced tickets at http://daniellehowle.com/houseconcertsshowtickets.cfm to ensure your safe entry into the wildest show of spirit on earth.
The place to be on Friday, March 29th is Awendaw Green: The FB invite for the event is: www.facebook.com/events/539280936093937
For those of you who may be traveling from out of town (or out of state) to this event, there is some camping on the Barn Jam site available for first come first serve. Email me here directly to reserve in advance.The invite on facebook will tell you all about this, or the ticket purchasing area of my website. Spread the word! Also, there are affordable hotels 8-10 miles up the road in Mount Pleasant, SC.
During this mini-fest, we will also be holding a Grit Cook-off competition. To enter this, you can DO IT right where you buy tickets to the concert on my site. If you enter the Grit Cook-off then you are most welcome to stay for the whole concert. All proceeds from the GRIT-OFF go to benefit my community music project called www.swampsessions.com
This is the ONLY "Off The Grid" studio and music project in SC. It is recorded on SOLAR POWER in the beautiful Francis Marion National Forest in a swamp house!! :) Compete in the GRIT-OFF and win a free trip to the Swamp House with a concert by yours truly. There's never going to be another opportunity to support a great project and get back to nature than this!!
BUT WAIT.... why support Swamp Sessions?? There are some notable and rarified performances by Cary Ann Hearst, Bret Mosley, Edwin McCain, Joel Hamilton, Joel Timmons (Sol Driven Train) and Mark Bryan of Hootie and The Blowfish, to name a few you may have heard of before. We also have many artists that kick ass that are up-and coming in this rare collection of songs. To learn more about this project click on the website listed above, or visit Swamp Sessions on facebook. FRiend us, for we are small, but mighty! www.facebook.com/swampsessions
Well, now I will switch gears to something less pleasant but super important. I guess many of you heard about my car accident right before Christmas. I was rear ended on a major highway, while at a complete stop in traffic. OUCH. I am still recovering from this physically and without health insurance- its getting rough financially as well.
Also, I lost all my PA gear, my car and a lot more stuff, which I hope to have replaced somehow. There is a place on my website where donations are being accepted for my gear and now for medical expenses. Go to the merch section and click on MUSIC- it will come right up for more information on how to help. I can be reached on this website if you wish to speak to me about this.
Fortunately, Kevin Oliver, regional and national music journalist, along with many of our friends in my hometown of Columbia, SC, threw me a yard sale where money was raised to help me out! A guitar was donated to me as well! I feel very lucky to have this support and still, more is needed. I have never been one to ask, but I am asking now.
So spread the word on that and the wonderful concert on March 29th. Come hang and "festivalize" with us, hear the new music I have been creating with my band and others, while enjoying this pristine setting in the low country of South Carolina- The Barn Jam at Awendaw Green, is where I have been doing my artist in residency work! It will be a HUGE show and I hope to see you there. Love from DMFH
Friends!! There will be a yardsale this Saturday, Feb 16 morning at Conondrum Music Hall in West Columbia. The proceeds will go to benefit me after a pretty rough car wreck where I lost the car, and my music gear. Please view the FB invite here. www.facebook.com/events/582460185117052/
This invite will give you info about what is going on. If you cannot attend the yardsale, donations can be made to my "equipment replacement fund" right here on this website in the on-line store.
After the yardsale, I will travel to Red Clay Theatre in Deluth, GA where I will open for some of the very best women songwriters on this earth. MIchelle Malone, Caroline Aiken and Dede Vogt will do a songwriter's round after my oepnign set. Check out this FB invite!
Altanta friends, if you mention the yardsale at Red Clay Theatre box office, the theatre will add $10.00 per person to my pay. ROCK!!
The poster is really cool for this event. However, I cannot figure out how to upload it just now. Once I do, well, then it will be here- if I can get it to work.
Ticket URL: www.eddieowenpresents.com/tickets/
On Sunday, I will be in Athens, GA for a house concert at Caroline Aiken's home. For more information, please see my calendar for details. I want you to be here. Some really cool folks are comign and we should all hang out together and celebrate in sound, s song and with foods.
THANK you kind folks of SC and Georgia for all of yuor support and the opportunity to grow as a human and heal from this accident. Love and light from DMFH

Hey Music friends!! it is true I was in a wreck and I am so happy to be alive, healing, and working through it. That's the main thing for sure!! Hurray and Happy New Year! The music gear and car that I used to travel in have been destroyed.
I will keep you updated and tell you what happened in detail a little later. I just did not want you guys to worry. For now, check out all the cool dates I have in January.

Smiles and thanksgiving memories. Just had to share this photo of the turkey in a woven, bacon sweater! It was taken on an outdoor table at Awendaw Green, by a pond where fish jump and ducks chatter. Awendaw Green's fashion designer in residence, Rachelle Rose, snapped this before the staff dug in! This is truly the best turkey I have ever had in my life. Thanks you guys!
Speaking of holidays, I have put up some new jewelry in the store to check out. Buying quality hand-crafter holiday gifts is cool. Support working, independant artists. New concert dates have been posted as well.
Thank you to those who have booked your DH house concerts. There is still time to get me for Christmas Parties or holiday family events. Email me!
THANK YOU for visiting my site. If you sign up for the mailing list now, you will receive a free download of a Danielle Howle + Firework Show song from the CD "New Year Revolutions". This work was recorded in the baby house (where I live) at Awendaw Green. You will also receive special emails from me periodically. Some people call these special emails "newsletters" but mine hardly qualify traditoinally in format. I am a bit technologically challenged and working on it. However, they are intelligent and informative updates for people on the list, containing links to exclusive media content that might make you smile and hopefully make you have a great damn day!
Going to the Swamp House today to hang with Awendaw Green staff and dig on some nature times. Check out www.swampsessions.com We will keep updating you about Swamp Ssessions "Off the Grid" Sustainable Energy Project on this site and FB page. Please "friend" Swamp Sessions and tell your friends to check us out! Remember to "Hover" over the "Like" button so the drop-down menu appears for you to make a choice to receive our updates. http://www.facebook.com/swampsessions?ref=hl
The recording sessions for this project were done on solar power in the Swamp House (photo above) in the Francis Marion National Forest. This work started in late 2011 and was completed in 2012. Swamp Sessions Volume 1 showcases songwriters from around the states that came to record in the solar powered Swamp House. Swamp Sessions Volume 1 compiles SIX recording sessions and will be released in 2013.
