We’re just back from 3 weeks of touring that took us from Montana to Kansas to New England, with points in between, and not necessarily in that order. Here are some photos below. Big Sky Big Grass gets the award for the biggest on-stage jams. With the Sam Bush Band (right), I think I played The Band’s “Up On Cripple Creek” for the first time. Big fun.
Incidentally, we lost 15 of our CDs during shipment somewhere between Virginia and Montana. If you happen to see them scattered along the highway in Wyoming, North Dakota, or some other point of interes, could you please send them to us (keep one for yourself, naturally). Thanks.
At the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, we dodged snowstorms and had a great time. It was our first time there, and for me it was a nice reunion with some friends I hadn’t seen there since I lived there in the late ’80s, including Howie Tarnower, Pam Swift, Eric Levenson, Jean and Larry Flint, and Lynn Joiner from Hillbilly at Harvard.
We’re off for a couple of weeks, but will soon pick up touring again, with Ivan Rosenberg as a guest band member on dobro. We’ll be in the Pacific Northwest, playing the Anza Club in Vancouver, BC, plus some small house concerts in Washington. Then it’s on to the Cabin Fever Bluegrass Workshop in 108 Mile, BC. See tour page for details.
