Bonnie Bishop celebrated her 40th birthday on February 28, 2019, and she says she’s feeling great. Based on the picture she sent out and her ability to still stand on her head, “great” seems an appropriate word.  Bonnie has just released House Sessions, Vol. 1, a collection of her earlier work redone in her contemporary voice with friends.  She recorded it at a house in Fort Worth and says it’s her birthday gift to herself.

 

Bonnie performs in Texas and the Southeast during March and April.
