Before I bring you news from our small part of the world I wanted to say that we sure hope you’re all surrounding yourselves with, and devouring as much peace, love and friendship as you can. The world is littered with scary, mean, hateful people but there are a bazillion times as many good, kind, understanding human beings out there with peace and love in their hearts. Here’s hoping that those voices, OUR voices, can always rise above and drown out the petty, fearful ones. LOVE WINS! ALWAYS.

CutestCoupleAtNoreastrThe music is doing its job and filling us with joy any time we can perform for you! We kicked off the month with a super fun Empty Chair show, capping off the season with the wonderful duo of San and Emily (Slomovits)! Talent runs in that family BIG time. Thanks to the gifted and generous Joel Palmer for putting together another wonderful season. We’ll start back up the first Sunday in September! Then we headed up to Mio for our 11th Noreastr Music and Art Festival! The Main stage on Friday was figuratively and (almost literally) on fire. Despite having to cut our set short courtesy of Mother Nature’s fury, we had an amazing time. Then on Saturday its always a privilege to sing with our friends from the Yellow Room Gang (David Tamulevich & Michael Hough, Matt Watroba and Kitty Donohoe)! SO many old friends and new (to us) performers! The Noreastr festival really feels like a home-coming every year!

Coming up on June 26th Rod and I will be returning to the awesome acoustic stage (formerly the Grove) at Top of the Park and then heading south to play a few shows in Indiana with Jason. Suffice it to say, if you live in Indiana we’ll be near you at some point very soon! If you’re on Facebook, click the image to join the tour event!

The first time at any venue is a bit scary, filled with unknowns and potential regret. House concerts come with their own set of unknowns but when the hosts are as genuinely friendly and enthusiastic about music as Joanne & Joe Smiddie-Brush and Phil & Carla Slates you can count on being put at ease from the minute you walk in the door. It’s like visiting old friends (who happen to be mutual cat lovers – thus, the name) who just invited all of their friends over to hear your music. This was a really fun night with a whole lot of laughs, stories and songs.

In May this past year we had the honor of performing at the Concerts at the Cabin’s 100th House Concert. Being a part of this monumental event, which also happened to be the 10th anniversary of our first performance at Concerts at the Cabin, which was also our first ever house concert, meant more than we can say. We’ve been lucky to perform at Tim & Tiffany’s place 4 times over those 10 years, where the audience is always warm and enthusiastic and the hosts are gracious and welcoming. I recently came across a little journal entry from the day after that first house concert… click on the “read more” link below to read my thoughts about our experience. Hope you enjoy this mash up of our first set!
