Thanks for bearing with me through that last little rant! Sometimes I've just gotta get all the words that are swirling around my head outta there!
I'm writing to you from Nashville today. It's really feeling like summer now! The drive here yesterday was such a classic summer time road trip that it's got me in a real good mood. You know what I mean, windows down roaring down the highway listening to your favorite songs. We had a steady rotation including Nickel Creek (LOVE where they went with a song called Hayloft on their most recent release!), Brandi Carlile, The Band, The Avett Bros, Shovels & Rope, The Fox Hunt and the list goes on... What are some tunes on your go-to drive mix??
We came down to Nashville to work on a new music video in support of Christian's new release, Onward. Each time I come to NashVegas it feels more and more like home! We got into town just in time to hear our friends Moonsville Collective perform a California Good Time set before they head back to LA. We will be joining them over on the west coast for a few shows at the end of the summer!!
Speaking of summer, I wanted to mention a few dates where you can catch us over the next few months that are new and noteworthy.
June 20th- Mountville Folk Festival- Aldie VA
The Mountville Folk Festival is like a big outdoor house concert with festival style camping. This will be my first time at this treasured event and I'm thrilled to be doing a special solo set for the fine folks of Aldie! It takes place on private land on Bull Run Mountain with gates opening at noon and music starting at 1pm. For tickets and directions please RSVP over at MountvilleFolkFestival@comcast.net.
June 27th- Shepherdstown Street Fest- Shepherdstown WV
This rockin festival is something the whole town looks forward to. The main streets are shut down and art vendors replace the parked cars. There is a beer garden and food court and all the live music you could possibly fit into one day! I'll be performing with Christian around 1:30pm on the main stage and I'll be at my own booth the rest of the day selling some handmade items from my etsy shop! If you've been looking for an excuse to come visit my town, this is a great one!!!
July 19th- Catoctin Creek Distillery- Purcellville VA
What better way can you imagine spending a summer Sunday in July than enjoying fine spirits and good music? The Catoctin Creek Music Festival is gonna be awesome! A whole day full of yummy booze (I highly recommend the Rye) and fun bands! My Random Assortment and I will be performing from noon until 1:30 and then we will be spending the rest of the day imbibing and dancing. Do join us if you have the notion!
These are just a few dates that I wanted to highlight for you. Please check out my tour schedule with Christian over HERE and I hope to see you somewhere in this big wide world!!
