Fairview Nature Fest
Prior to the death of Dr. Evangeline Bowie in 1992, the City of Fairview was graciously deeded the land that is now Bowie Nature Park. It was her wish that the city make a public nature park out of the 722-acre forest that she had created from land that, at the time of her purchase in the 1950s, was so barren and eroded it was losing over 30 tons of topsoil annually. Her land management techniques included hiring a bulldozer to build terraces, dig lakes and create a hydrology system. Her hydrology system was so well designed that it has amazed even the most highly regarded land management experts. This plan also included the planting of over 500,000 Loblolly Pine Trees.
In 2003, Bowie Park Nature Center was completed and opened. The center offers the opportunity for park visitors to learn more about Bowie Nature Park itself with nature exhibits, brochures and art. In 2008, Bowie Nature Park and the legacy of land provided by Dr. Bowie were placed in a conservation easement where it is protected by the Land Trust For Tennessee.

Before I get you up to speed on all that has happened, please check out my upcoming summer performance dates below. I’d love to see you at one of them!
At the start of the year I released “Hang a Black Cloth” at a sold-out show in Nashville and then hit the road to promote the album. Since then, “Hang a Black Cloth” has been picked up by Americana stations around the globe (a few are listed below) and charted on the Americana Music Association (AMA) radio charts. It has been amazing to see the positive response from the record. Thank you for your support!
