I chat in the studio with my husband, Scott Greeson, right after we had played a music gig with the band at the Indiana Bacon Festival in Delphi, Indiana.
Other topics of the show include my accordion lessons via Skype with Bev Fess; details of the Bacon Fest gig; and my annual trek to Accordion Camp where I have met and learned from professional accordionists Bev Fess, Murl Allen Sanders, Ron Borelli, Gary Blair, Ilmar Kuljus, Dick Myking, and many more. Friends and fellow accordionists who attend camp make the event a reunion of sorts. Show notes for Episode 20 can be found at http://heartsongfit.com/camp20
Thanks for sharing this episode with a friend!

You'll hear the sounds of nature in this episode of Heartsong Fit. I recorded it out in the woods as I was taking a morning walk for exercise. I have my llama, Heartsong, with me. You'll hear the cicadas singing in the background as we navigate around tree branches, unsuccessfully duck under spider webs and frustrate my horse, Madison, who wanted to go with us on the trail.
If you like to walk for exercise, you'll hear about reasons for getting off the treadmill and taking your exercise outdoors! It's very good for our brains!
