Music News: August 2020

Hi Friends,
It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a music update. In this time of pandemic, there’s not a lot of live music happening out there. A few reminders of things I’m doing in the online world, to help keep us connected in this unusual time.

New Website!

First, my music website has a whole new look. You should check it out.
New music.

New pictures.

New videos.

And most of all, a slick new design. I’m really happy with it and  I hope you play around at the site for a while.

Check it out:

Coffee on the Porch

Also, every Tuesday morning during this time of social distancing, I am doing a livestream hour from my front porch called, “Coffee on the Porch.”

Join us every Tuesday, 9:30 am Central, for an hour of music and conversation.

You can find us on Facebook live here.

If you don’t have Facebook, you can navigate here on my website and either watch each week’s live broadcast, or the archives of all previous weeks.


And, as always, don’t forget about this blog, “WhenEFTalks,” where there are always many essays to read on music, politics, spirituality and life.

I hope and pray you and all your loved ones are safe in this unusal time, and that you’re navigating life as best you can. I look forward to connecting with you all in person whenever that time comes.

Until then, breathe in and breathe out and keep yourself centered in thoughts of hope, peace and love.

Eric Folkerth is a minister, musician, author and blogger. He is Senior Pastor of Kessler Park UMC United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas. Previously, he was pastor at Northaven UMC in Dallas for seventeen years. Eric loves to write on topics of spirituality, social justice, music/art and politics. The entries on this blog reflect that diversity of interests. His passion for social justice goes beyond mere words. He’s been arrested at the White House, defending immigrants and “The Dreamers,” and he’s officiated at same sex weddings in his churches, in defiance of what some believe is Methodist teaching. Eric is an avid blogger and published author, and 2017 recipient of the prestigeous Kuchling Humanitarian Award from Dallas’ Black Tie Dinner. (Human Rights Campaign) Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He’s a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named “best judge” by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County, and is currently the longest service district judge in that district. She was re-elected for a fourth term in 2018. They have the world’s best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy.
