Hey there Friends!
As I write, the band and I are truly excited to be getting out on the road again this month, back to two great venues we've loved in the past: The Noe Valley Music Series in San Francisco (joining our friends Houston Jones on a great co-bill), and Rich Warren's FolkStage on WFMT Chicago, a venerable and highly-respected live radio broadcast which has been part of the Chicago traditional and folk music scene for many years. We're also adding one new concert location in Chicago, Two-Way Street Coffee House, which will welcome us as touring musicians the night before we hit the airwaves of WFMT.
We've been developing new songs especially for the Chicago performances, by request from Rich ~ a fuller and deeper exploration of the Jean Ritchie canon, especially in how it relates to our new music by our resident composer Rob Carlson. Jean has been inspiring us for many years, and now we get an opportunity to share her work along side of ours, pulling along the story-telling traditions and styles of her Appalachian roots.
If you're in the Chicago area, come join us at Two-Way Street, and if you're not, listen in live to the radio broadcast Saturday night on WFMT. Check our Calendar page for info on tuning in to the LIVE STREAM!
