Colorado Summer 

June 30           
            Hey y’all – its summertime and there’s an unbelievable amount of music happening in Colorado – a festival under every rock and behind every tree! We’ve gotten a small piece of the action, being a new band and all, but we’re excited about getting our music in front of the folks and have been happy and surprised by all the enthusiasm and excitement amongst the listening and dancing crowds here.
            We had a great time at the Bluegrass on the Arkansas Festival in Salida, Memorial Day Weekend, with Bruce Hayes sitting in on mandolin. That’s his home turf and we were pleased to be able to show off his chops while sharing the stage with Colorado bluegrass heavyweights Jeff Scroggins, and Finnders and Youngberg. The end of May was a blast as well – Christina and I got to travel back to Texas for two shows, including a closing slot at the Kerrville Folk Festival! We got to play with the old crew – Billy Bright, Chojo Jacques, Steven Crow and Matt Downing, and folks the next day were telling us we played so hard it wore them out just listening!
            Coming up we’ll be a part of the very first Groove Music and Arts Festival in Georgetown. In August we’ll be at the Golden Fine Arts Festival, and then later in the month we get to be a part of the return of the Estes Park Bluegrass Festival. Right about that time we should be starting our album recording project, which I am very excited about.
            As usual, visit the webpage for show dates and info, videos and whatnot. Stop by and say hi in the Facebook page, give us like if you haven’t, and don’t forget our music is for sale at CDBaby.com and iTunes.
 
Keep on shinin’!
