Just popping in to say Hi and tell you that while we aren’t playing a ton of gigs over the next couple months we are busy little bees behind the scene. There’s new video being produced, there are new songs being written and little tours being booked. This photo was taken at the historic Howell Opera House which is in the midst of being restored by some awesome folks! More soon.
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!
