Subject: Old-Time Songs on Kickstarter.com

My name is Martha Burns and I sing American old-time songs. I've been singing old-time songs for more than forty years. Now, I'm raising funds on Kickstarter.com to make my first solo CD.

The campaign is going well. First, kickstarter chose my project as a "staff pick." Then they selected it as one of only seven projects to feature on the "Kickstarter Blog." All good news.

Still, I need everyone's help to reach my goal. Please check out the 3-minute video appeal, which explains everything. Think you'll like it, too. That's at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1226502260/martha-burns-solo-cd-of-old-time-songs?ref=recommended , or HERE .
.

You may also enjoy the YouTube videos of me and fiddler Allan Block in concert in 1986. Allan and I formed a duo during the mid-1980s. Start with this one, at

Martha Burns and Allan Block

Thanks! And please, spread the word!

Martha

In the lower right-hand corner I'm getting a red

Error

thing on my screen.

When I opened it it read

Invalid application ID: The provided application ID is invalid.

I don't know what that means. Does anyone?

Hi 999,
    Do you mean for the link to Kickstarter? It worked for me, when I just tried it. But I'll make another linkie and see what happens.

Okay, try this one: Martha Burns: Solo CD of Old-Time Songs

If that doesn't work for you, go to Kickstarter.com and search "Martha Burns.' That's sure-fire.

And thanks!

Martha

We may need some moderator help here to indicate that this thread is about Mudcat member Martha Burns, a very talented and knowledgeable singer of old-time songs. I must admit that while I love trad songs, I did not access this thread until i received a PM from Martha.

Good news today, too. The WASHINGTON CITY PAPER has featured my project, with no prompting from me. Quote: "Good God is this video precious." Pretty great!

Honestly, I love the kickstarter one, too. Larry Edelman made it. He's a wonderful dance musician and caller, who also makes videos. Well, we kind of did it together. I sent him the script and the photos and he turned them into something. Without him, I wouldn't have known how to get to first base. Making a video isn't easy, I've discovered!

I just posted about Martha's fundraising on Facebook. I included her link to Kickstarter. I'd really like to see this happen for her.

Seems like I should tell you how things worked out. Well, my Kickstarter campaign succeeded, and now the album, OLD-TIME SONGS, is a reality.

If you contributed to the campaign, you've already received a copy as thanks. If you didn't contribute, but would like an album, you'll find it at CDBaby among other outlets.

Hope you enjoy it!

Martha
