Howdy friends. Thanks for visiting the site.
A summer recap
We just had a great summer run of shows starting in June with the Great Big Fais Do Do. Next Reeb and I headed north to Fiddle Tunes and joined a hand full of friends and fellow musicians for a great week of teaching, dancing and general merriment. Reeb and I then headed east to central Washington to visit her family and hold our annual family and friends gathering, The Farmer Social. This is an important down time for us as we spend close to two weeks at Reeb’s family farm where we get a chance to slow down, visit family, and help with projects around the property. Following the Farmer Social, Reeb and I headed back to Oregon to play at the Wildwood Music Festival in Willamina Or. This was our first performance at Wildwood and we really had a great time being part of a small local festival. Check it out next year. After Wildwood Festival we headed to North Eastern Oregon to perform for four days at the newly remodeled Minam River Lodge, to which you can only access by small plane, by horseback, or on foot. We packed the eight mile trip on horses led by the stellar wrangler Wes Gorbett. We really got along well with Wes and ended up having an amazing time at the lodge. We stayed one extra night because we were so in love with the peace and quiet that such a secluded place provides, not to mention that we bonded pretty hard with the staff. Go Minam River Lodge. This trip will become an annual event for sure, see you there next year. Next we flew off to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to perform with both the Caleb Klauder Country Band and the Foghorn Stringband at the Blue Berry Bluegrass and Country Music Festival. Go Canada. You are doing it right for sure. This festival has had a recent change of guard in the production side of things and boy did they get it right. After Blueberry fest, Reeb and I headed back to Portland to perform with the Country Band at the Doug Fir Lounge, followed by a quick trip to Ashland, OR to perform at the West Coast Country Music Festival, also with the Country Band. Thank You Dee Fretwell.
