  • Description


    We are a husband and wife who are long time independent musicians and have a 7 year old boy. We live on an acre in an 1875 home in North East Texas. We are working toward urban permaculture style organic vegetable gardening and cultivating fruit trees. We have a friendly dog Fluffy Puffy. We are working towards being able to host traveling musicians and occasional house concerts. Our efforts are not for profit but are community building and for cultural exchange.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have 30 Years of music And music industry skills, drum lessons, vinyl DJ skills.
    There are be nearby fishing and lakes accessible within 20-40 minutes, Caddo Lake being the main attraction. Walking to local restaurants and coffee & gift shop village style. Huge City Park in close walking distance with workout stations, frisbee golf course, beautiful walking path and kids play area. Nice walking in general around. We have knowledge of the deep music history from this area and how it correlates or has spread to other areas of U.S. culture and the world. I specialize and have DJ'd Jamaican and Soul music for 21 years so I can be informative on the multiple genres of that and where it connects to our local music history of NE Texas. We are both good cooks, with much experience. Our yard is a sanctuary and habitat for wild life including many birds, frogs/toads, cats, a goldfish pond, occasional foxes and armadillos, etc..
