The magic of technology sometimes really leaves me awestruck. I’m sitting in the passengers seat of a rented Toyota Corolla that is making us feel very grateful for our mini-van. I mean, what kind of modern day vehicle doesn’t come equipped with cruise-control? Still, its nice that our gas savings alone will probably pay for most of the rental. Imagine it would completely pay for it if we had cruise control :-)
So as most of you know, we’re on our way to Kerrville Texas to play our two songs for the judges along with 32 other finalists. One of whom is fellow Michigan artist, Jen Cass, who is a wonderful singer/songwriter! Kerrville has been on our radar for many years and we’re looking forward to finally seeing what all the fuss is about. We promise to report back next month, but if you want more timely updates join us on Facebook or twitter.
In the car on the way up to Manistee I sit in the back seat listening to Rod and Jason talk “shop”. How lucky am I to have such talent beside me. We’ve had the good fortune of playing in a trio with Jason Dennie who does the mandolin fine and also does a little singing. Then they break into a hysterical laughter over a certain South Park episode involving … well … I just can’t say it. Boys. Its a good thing they can play.
