Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

This is the thirteenth in a series of audio podcasts by Michael Schwartz -- Chiriqui Life Stories. This podcast features DeDe Wedekind, a singer/song writer who, along with her husband Larry, lives part time in Texas and part time in Boquete because neither one of them has retired. She is a very accomplished musician, having produced four award winning albums, has received numerous awards, and is continuing to work on additional songs and albums. This podcast is about someone who found her life's work in her mid-adult years, and now enjoys her music with a passion. DeDe performs on a regular basis at several venues in the Boquete area.

Here are some of the awards that DeDe has received:

  • “Dream of You” - 2016 IMEA Album of the Year
  • DeDe-Indie Music Channel's 2016 Best New Female Artist of the Year
  • 2 IMEA Albums of the Year - 2014
  • SingerUniverse's Best Vocalist - 2014
