Vegan Street: 10 Questions: Vegan Rock Star with Annette Conlon…

As I began preparing for my fall 2016 tour, I reached out to Vegan Street’s Marla Rose. We chatted a lot about the tour, tossed around names and came up with the perfect portmanteau “Compassionette Tour.” Marla offered to include me in her Vegan Rock Star series, but I had no idea how much these questions would affect me.

Read on and find out why.

I’m so excited to head out on the Compassionette Tour Sept 24-Oct 1, 2016! I’ve dreamed of a chance to spread awareness of veganism and compassionate living through my music, and now I have that chance!! From Nashville to Asheville, and up to Chicago, including the 8th Annual Chicago Veganmania, I’m thrilled to share the word about how to choose ways to add animal friendly choices into your life, from music, fashion, food, and love!

Check out the Tour Dates!

I’m endorsed by some amazing companies including Bedell Guitars, Bent & Bree, BHAVA, Couch Guitar Straps, Kat Mendenhall Vegan Cowboy Boots, Guitar Moose, LR Baggs, Seagull Guitars, and Shubb Capos.

We are really looking forward to playing the second annual SoCal VegFest in Costa Mesa at Orange Coast College. This is a free event with free parking, which means more money for food, supporting great causes with your purchases, and more money for great vegan food!

This is a two-day festival, October 29 and 30, 2016, 10AM-6PM and we perform on Sunday, October 30, at 11:35 am on the main stage!

I have been playing my Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor Guitar since February 2016 and love that Bedell Guitars is committed to thoughtfully and sustainably honoring our connectivity between the woods of our forests and our music, creating beautifully crafted instruments from “seed to song.” Bedell is superb in delivering on both compassion and tone, and I am so proud to be a part of the Bedell Family.
