Hello Friends, Fans and Red-light-runners everywhere!
We are in nature right now and I am writing from a farm house in beautiful Upstate NY. Here, the sounds of crickets and cicadas serenade me as I keep the rhythm on these computer keys. This is our 7th or 8th trip up North and it's great to be surrounded by such natural beauty and to be greeted by friends and an ever-growing community of musicians and music appreciators each time we visit.
So far on the tour, I rode a tractor and saw a groundhog bigger than most dogs typically seen in NYC, Kelly befriended a cow named Patty, learned 3 new songs on the ukulele and made really good quinoa. Together, we rocked The Churchville County fair like two rogue buskers on a mission, got to go see Steve Earle in concert, and recorded some tracks with our friends in band Woody Dodge. It's been a great time and we look forward to more with you at our upcoming show:) Below is a brief outline of our performances for this next week. More details at the bottom of this email.
