Inga, Enjoying your CD. Thanks so much for bringing it to me. I guess I don't have a question. All my best. Dave Douglas. dave@davedouglas.com

Oh my goodness Dave!
I'm so embarrassed that I did not see your email come in. I'm sorry. I was so touched that you listened to our CD and then took the time to write me. We had such a good time making it. "Be Still" is on heavy rotation in our home. Incredible music and group. Both celebratory and reflective, so beautiful. Thank you for inspiring..

Hello dear Pam,
How nice of you to write and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tune. It is a Tom Waits song abbreviated for the show. Of course Tom Waits has recorded it and it's awesome, but I have yet to record it. I do love it and should think about doing that. Thank you for the push! Hope to meet you at a show someday!
warmly, inga

Hi Inga,
Mladen sent your First Rain CD. Wonderful! We love it. Any plans to gig in the North Bay ever? Come up for the Kate Wolf Fest? Any other summer circuit music fests that you perform at? You're great!

Hi Woody and June!

Thanks so much for writing and for your kind words. I'll be playing in Oakland at the "Sound Room", and in Danville at "Peace Lutheran" on April 5th, 6th. I'll put details up on my website very soon. Hope to see you there!

Dear Bill,

Hello my friend. I am sorry for not letting you know about the Moira Smiley/ Rose and the Nightengale gig that Kathleen and I sang at. I drove down with my mom and Stellan and drove back to SLO the same night. I failed to let anyone know I was doing it and I'm sorry.
All is well here, busy chasing this little boy who has just started walking. And he is on the go! Music is happening in the cracks, like lots of lullabies and songs about putting on pants and diapers and stuff. REAL improv. Mo is working hard, Britta is teaching dental hygiene in the clinic and loving it, and my folks are awesome.. So supportive and involved with Stellan's life.
How are you doing? What is new in the LA Land? How is writing?
Thank you for reaching out to me. I hope you are well and happy.

warmly, inga

Hey Ronnie!
Thanks so much for coming the other day to AG. So much fun! I've still got physical CDs at CD Baby for purchase. Here is my website, www.ingaswearingen.com You can go there and see the CD Baby link. Or you can go here http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/IngaSwearin.... The latest one is "First Rain" and I think that's the one you'd like. Thank you so much for your support Ronnie!! Hope to see you soon!

Hi, I am a fan after being given a copy of First Rain by a voice teacher(Vanessa Purdy) in Yarnell where we live. (Yes that is where the fire was).... anyway I just saw that you are doing a house concert in Burien, WA. I will be there just before then but will extend my stay to get to see you both the 5th and 6th at Seattle Jass Vespers. HOWEVER, I tried to email for reservations and directions to the address on your site and it did not go through. It was LL@LanceAnd Laurie.net which got bounced back to me. Do you have other contact info. so I can reserve seats? I wish I was around SLO for the summer concerts, but maybe next summer - I hope you do them again!

My dear Rosalie,

I am so very, very sorry for just getting to my fanbridge questions now. I have let you down. I will indeed be in Seattle Oct. 4-9th. The house concert on the 5th is unfortunately sold out but there is plenty of room at the jazz vespers gig on Sunday, Oct. 6th, and it is free! I'll be playing with saxophonist Anton Schwartz and bassist Jon Hamar. Here is a link for more info.

Also, if you or anyone you know would be interested in coming to Cornish for a free workshop with me on Oct. 9th, I'd love to have you! Here is a link for more info on that as well. I don't know if you'll still be in Seattle at the time, but just in case. (Click on Oct. 9th on the calendar)

Thank you so much for your loving support Rosalie (even though it took almost 4 months to get a response). Yes indeed, I hope to see you in Seattle or in SLO!

Warmly,

Are you planning any upcoming trips to the Seattle area? The Edmonds Center for the Arts is a terrific venue, for example.

Hi there Jim!

I am finally answering my Fanbridge questions and ran across your message. It was so nice to re-connect with you at Blue Whale. Thank you so much for coming and supporting us! We had a great time that night. And thank you for the shout out on your FB page the day after. So kind.
I hope you are well and summer is finding you down there. I am well, school has ended and I am again taking big chunks of my day to just play music and come up with some new ideas. I love summer! Take care and hope to see you soon Jim! warmly, inga
