Thank you for visiting the new website and for taking some time to read this. Are you feeling as scattered as I am? Such a swirling mix of emotions in these days of uncertainty. I look to the simplest things for connection, lots of walking, trying a new recipe, a cool breeze on a sun warm day, a surprise visit from a melody snatched from the ether. I hope that you are finding peace, and staying healthy in mind and body.
Today I'm all over the place doing one thing then another, not completing tasks but adding more to my list. Before I dodge off to the next duty I want you to know about my Patreon site. Just launched it yesterday and folks are beginning to sign on. Through the years patrons of many kinds have made my life as a traveling singer songwriter possible. So, Patreon makes perfect sense, particularly while my touring days have been suspended for who knows how long.
As a Patreon subscriber you pay a monthly amount of your choice to have access to unique and exclusive opportunities, and extra content only available to Patreon subscribers. I encourage you to take a look at the six tiers I'm offering to see if you are interested in being a patron of my creative journey. Here is the link danacooperpatreon
I am excited to share new works with you, songs, stories, poems, videos, all kinds of cool stuff from the archives.
And this coming Sunday, May 24 at 2pm CDT I will give the second Virtual Hug Concert on my Facebook Music Page danacooperfacebook
This time I will concentrate on sharing some new songs and taking requests as well. Feel free to send your request to me on Facebook and I will toss it into the hat. The concert is available for anyone, anywhere to watch for free. But if you want to make a donation you can send it to PayPal.me/Danacoopermusic or Venmo:@Dana-Cooper-22 . Tune in to the show and I will be most appreciative whatever you do.
Take good care of yourself and others. I'll see you here again soon.
Welcome to my new site! I hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. I am off the road for an undetermined length of time but managing to stay fairly busy catching up on computer work, writing, yard work, and experimenting with new recipes.
As you are well aware, many folks are giving concerts online in an effort to stay connected. I will give my first Facebook Live concert this coming Sunday, April 19 at 2pm Central Time. The performance will be free but there will be a link to my Paypal account for those who feel comfortable contributing something. Of course, any amount will be greatly appreciated.
My Inishfree Ireland Music Tour scheduled for May has also been cancelled due to Covid-19. But there is still room to sign up for my April 29-May8, 2021 tour. For all the details and to join the tour go to www.inishfreetours.com.
Two months ago I signed with Corinne Tames of Blue Skies Management. Together we have already accomplished quite a lot even with the temporary closing down of life as we know it. She encouraged me to work with Brandon Pinard who took some great new promo photos and also developed this new website. Corinne and I are poised to renew booking live shows as soon as it makes sense. I still have quite a few concerts on the calendar but expect many of those to be postponed. Like everyone else, I'm just taking things one day at a time.
We are also working on a Patreon site which should be up and running in the next few weeks. If you love and support the work I do this will be a place where you can become a patron and receive exclusive content from me every month. Look for more about that soon.
I want you to come tour Ireland with me! For over 15 years now I’ve been traveling to Ireland. With each visit I fall in love all over again with this breathtakingly beautiful country, its lovely people and its inspiring music. I want to share this life changing experience with you!
Here’s how it all works. My next Inishfree Ireland Music Tour is scheduled for April 29-May 8, 2021. For all the details on my tour go to inishfreetours.com . They have been organizing these tours for years now and really know what they're doing when it comes to providing a relaxed and exciting experience. Inishfree Tours are small, the coach seats 24, so no one feels lost in the crowd. They have found comfortable small hotels in coastal villages where we all can be together for meals and music. We stay for 3 days each in 3 different places, taking day trips from there to see the sights and learn about Irish culture and history. So you can get cozy in one place for a few days and not have to pack up and travel every day. Every night we’ll be treated to some of the very best traditional and contemporry musicians. These folks are truly amazing. Plus I will play for you too!
With Inishfree Tours we will visit 3 counties along the Wild Atlantic Way of Ireland's west coast, Clare, Kerry, and Cork, where you’ll find some of the most spectacular landscapes and coastal vistas anywhere. All along the way we’ll visit ancient stone circles, castles, ruins, museums about Irish culture and history, and a ferry ride or two if you’re game. You can expect us to be joined by archaeologists, authors and other interesting folks who will share their intimate knowledge of Ireland. And at the end of each day more music!
The cost of this unique adventure is $2650 for double occupancy. For a single it’s $3150, but these are limited in number. If you’re traveling alone we will be happy to try and pair you up with another solo traveler to save you both some money. For this you get 9 nights accommodation, all travel on our 24 seat coach, ferry tickets, museum entrance fees, concerts, breakfast every morning and 3 group evening meals. You’ll be responsible for your travel to Ireland and we can give you some tips on getting the best airfare when the time comes. I strongly recommend that you plan on arriving the day before the first tour day so you can rest up from your flight before all the fun begins. We can also arrange a nice B&B for you in Bunratty the night before that shouldn’t be too expensive.
Are you in? Just contact Barbara Bowers at with the name, address, phone number and e-mail address of everyone in your group. Barbara will send you an invoice and walk you through the process. The initial payment of $850 will reserve your spot on the tour. Then $850 will be due 6 months out and the remaining $950 3 months in advance of the tour. You can also take care of the whole thing right up front if you prefer. Remember, there will only be 24 of us max, and some folks have already signed up. So don’t wait too long to book your spot. If you need more info, go to inishfreetours.com and find answers to any questions you have. Inishfree also has a Facebook page
I look forward to touring Ireland with you!
