What a great year! I beatboxed with an Irish Step Team, had my first radio interview, and serenaded folks at Farmers’ Markets. I got a Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/themsqueenearth. I watched guitar students come and go, and come back. I had some great shows and some educational moments. I’m a better teacher, musician, friend, and hopefully, a better businesswoman. Thank you for following QueenEarth!

My new friend, Eli, from the West Coast is touring the area. December 18, 2011 @7-9pm is Constance Sisk & Eli Conley in Baltimore! w/ QueenEarth & Brooks Long at Gallery 788 $5. Eli Conley has a country choirboy voice and a singer/songwriter’s sincerity. He crafts songs that ride the rail between indie folk and alt-country from the raw material of his life as a gay transgender man with Virginia roots. – http://www.eliconley.com/ This is gonna be a crazy evening of eclectic electric proportions. http://www.facebook.com/events/280633468635272/
