Howdy friends. Happy New Year to you all.
A big thank you to all those who made it out to the Spare Room Lounge on New Years Eve. What a celebration. It has been a while since we played in Portland and it felt great to see all of our hometown friends.
On January 2/3 the I took the Country Band out to Enterprise OR, and to Boise ID.. We had two amazing shows there and were warmly accommodated by our good friends and pals Mike and Sarah in Enterprise, and Ava Honey Bliss in Boise. Saturday Jan 3rd was Ava’s birthday so it was an extra special night there in Boise.
The winter months bring us a few more adventures. I am heading back into the studio to do some more recording with the Country Band. My voice is feeling much stronger these days and since having had my polyp surgery I think this session will produce some great new tracks. We are looking to release the new album by the Fall of 2015.
Following the portland Recording session, we will stick around town to celebrate the 16th Annual Portland Old Time Gathering. I will be playing some fiddle in my pickup band The Cully Cuttups, along with Reeb Willms, Brian Bagdonas, and Peter Leone.
The Foghorn Stringband starts a Midwinter NW tour on Jan 28th. we will be wrapping up the tour at the 7th annual Olympia Old Time Gathering on Feb 13/14th. We are excited to stop in Olympia after all these years. It has been too long.
The Caleb Klauder Country Band heads out on a Deep South Tour on February 15th-21st. The band will fly to Lafayette LA and take part in the Mardi Gras celebration. We are actually playing Lundi Gras and then we will be active in the Mardi Gras run out near Eunice LA.
After Mardi Gras we head east to Eastman GA on Feb 19th for the Magnolia Music and Medicine Show, and then we move on to Savannah GA for a private wedding on the 20th. We will play a fun public show on Feb 21st with The Accomplices at the American Legion Hall, in Savannah GA.
We will race back to the NW for the Winter Grass Music Festival in Bellevue WA on the weekend of Feb 27th and 28th. Come join us for some fun picking and dancing at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Bellevue Wa.
See you soon we hope. Please stay in touch and keep us in your prayers as we travel this beautiful country. Happy 2015!
