Hello and welcome.
When I'm not baking wood-fired sourdough bread, or mucking out the barn, or designing buildings, I write songs. Lyrically oriented songs, I suppose, but I what's a good lyric without melody to hang it on or a rhythm to drive it? Some themes recur: places, community, friends, the environment. Some songs don't fit these themes - Sometimes I let my horses choose the road.

Hi Roger! Bruce Bednarchuk from Redwood Falls, MN. Remember me? I'm one of your song-fans. Anyway, I'm just letting everyone know who could potentially come to The Mankato Symphony Orchestras' concert which will be Sat., June 25th at Riverfront Park in Kato. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the concert is at 7:00. I'm pleased to say that they will be performing "Final March of the Czar", a piece of mine that I'm dedicating to my grandmother who escaped from The Ukraine as Russian soldiers took her familys' farm and murdered her brothers. If you can attend, it would be most appreciated! Thank you and have a splendid week. Bye for now! Bruce B.


My name is Brent Hoffmann and I am the Executive Director of the 2010 Industry Meltdown Midwest Music Summit.
I would like to personally invite you to attend this year's IMMMS.
Have you ever asked yourself:
How can I get more paying gigs?
How can I get my songs on the radio?
How can I meet industry pros so they can listen to my music?
Where can I go to learn more/new techniques to market my music?
All of those questions and more will be addressed at this year's event. You don't want to miss this opportunity.
You can find out more information at -
This weekend only - we are offering discounted ticket prices for the Holiday's

I look forward to seeing you there.
Brent Hoffmann
Executive Director
P.S. - A strong songwriter like yourself would be a great addition to this year's attendees. I hope you decide to come.
