Join me next Saturday to talk about music and food

by Sally on November 6, 2011

I’m speaking on a panel next Saturday (12th), along with some of Austin’s most prominent women of rock! My panel is about staying healthy on the road, something I have a lot of experience in as a touring musician with food allergies (which led me to also become a certified holistic nutritionist last year), but there are also panels about subjects I am (so far!) blissfully ignorant about: ‘Crossing the Line: When Fans Get Too Close’ (stalker-tastic!) and ‘Do Music and Motherhood Mix?’, among others. The whole day should be very fun and informative. Hope to see you there!

Here’s a run down of the full day’s events, from
