Bruce on NPR

Bruce was on NPR Radio’s “All Things Considered” a few weekends ago, talking about the new solo record. First time he’s done that show.

Thanks from TWLOHA

Today we gave the last of the money from your fantastic donations in June. Eastern Florida State College received $500 for their TWLOHA chapter in recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week, which runs from September 8-14. I’m passing these words on from Sam Brown: “Thank you SO MUCH for your amazingly generous donation. I am honored to have your support. TWLOHA will use your gift to do incredible things. With hope, Sam”.

Bruce Does the Dead

Si’s fundraiser for TWLOHA was on this week’s Grateful Dead Hour… Bruce Hornsby performing twenty different Grateful Dead songs. Check out Bruce Does the Dead — AJ.

Thanks AJ

Thanks AJ for holding the fort in my absence, and continuing to do so on occasion. You can get him at AJ@bruuuce.com.

Throwback Thursday: a Range concert!

With thanks to Darkstar833, here’s Bruce Hornsby and the Range in Roanoke, VA in 1988 for your downloading pleasure.

$6,454

A message from Si Twining: TWLOHA, The Merlin Centre and the ALS Association are now an incredible $6,454 better off thanks to your wonderful generosity. You have already paid for three student leaders to attend the TWLOHA conference later this month and provide urgent counselling for their peers in Boston. Added to that, the Merlin Centre and the ALS Association have today been sent their money. Our TWLOHA friends in Boston wanted to pass this on to you: “We are so honored and humbled by your amazing contribution. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts! We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!! Thanks so much for believing in this worthwhile organization. “

TWLOHA conference

I would echo that. $6,454 is an incredible amount. The three charities are all very dear to me for one reason or another, and the least I can do is continue to report back on progress. This has been an especially rewarding venture while I have been in and out of hospital and battle some new health challenges, so the end result is absolutely worth the effort. Again, thank you all for your generosity. Here’s a picture from the conference you sent three people on – you can click on it to enlarge it. For those asking, you can still find all of the Daily Dose Day downloads in one place. Still up for grabs even after we finished Daily Dose Day:

Thick Cuistard

THKCSTD

A dozen talented musicians gave you Thick Custard: Celebrating the Music of Bruce Hornsby. They’ve given their time, talents and energy for free so that you can enjoy this latest cover project, which has taken three years to put together.  I’m so proud of it, and of each contributor. Please go and visit the brand new ThickCustard.com website for 12 covers of Bruce Hornsby songs, which I promise you’ll love. And on a sidenote, if you’re able to share the link on your social media, blog, e-mail list or website, it would really help. These people deserve to be heard! Against my better judgement, I’ve answered your questions… if you think that would interest you, take a look at your questions for… Si?!

Spotlight on our three causes

If you have any comments, questions, requests or suggestions, please do contact Si. Again, thank you so much for your support and overwhelming kindness once again this year. Please donate if you can! sincerely, – Si Twining.
