we're full on into apple season, and I just saw some pie pumpkins at the store. about time to bake some pies! yes, I bake, and I make my crust from scratch, and I whip my own cream, and no, I don't like to share.
I'll be playing with my good friends in Honest Monday this weekend at the Boats and Bluegrass festival in Winona. I'd invite you to come, but I hear its sold out! Should be a great time. Check my calendar for more dates, I'd love to see you out at a show!
I had the recent pleasure of playing with Tony Trischka for a radio program called Mountain Stage, an NPR show based out of West Virginia. This particular performance was up in Grand Marais, and was my first time both going that far north and meeting Tony. What a fun group! Brian Wicklund from the Barley Jacks was on fiddle, and Jacob Jolliff from Yonder Mountain String Band was on mandolin. It was a sincere honor to be invited to play with such incredible musicians on such a beautiful stage, and a wonderful adrenaline rush to play virtually unrehearsed music with unfamiliar people on live radio.
There will be a broadcast of the show on 10/24 on supporting NPR stations, check out www.mountainstage.org
