Greetings,

Once again, sending out our little music newsletter seems rather trivial in light of the horrible natural and manmade disasters going on in the world. We do hope all of you and your loved ones are well and safe from the horrendous events we hear about in the news. Our hearts go out to all the people affected by the hurricanes and earthquakes and wars that have devastated so many lives.

We’re grateful for every day we have the opportunity to enjoy life as we’ve known it. Music seems to be one small thing we can do that can help make people smile.

We’ll be playing at the Calistoga Farmers Market next Saturday Morning,
October 15th — 8:30 to 12:30
Dan Brunetti and Terry Ann Gillette will join us.

The next day
Oct. 16th– from around 12:00pm until 5:00 pm (or so..)
The 4 of us will be playing several sets throughout the day at the Adobe Pumpkin Farm in Petaluma.
Located at 2478 East Washington St. (on the east side of Hwy.101)

We hope to have our good friend, Christopher Smith, joining us at some point, (depending on his other gigs.) Christopher is an amazing song writer and great musician. We’ll be singing a few of his quirky wonderful songs at this event. We’ve been learning one of his new ones, perfect for this occasion, a song called “Pumpkin Town,” that makes us laugh every time we hear it.

Oct 22nd — We’ll play at the Pumpkin Farm again.(Possibly the 23rd too, though we haven’t committed to that yet.)
These are the 2 big weekends of the year for the Adobe Pumpkin Farm. They’ll have hayrides and picnicing by the lake from 10am until 6pm.
Hope you can make it out to get your pumpkins and hear some music!
Love,
Lindalou and Michael

P.S. Thanks to the folks who have bought our CD recently at CD Baby where all proceeds continue to go to the Red Cross.
