We hope you’re all enjoying the summer. We’ve been playing music with a lot of good friends and enjoying several music festivals and great parties the past few weeks. Between work and kids and all this playing, we’ve been burning the candle at both ends… having way too much fun and way too little sleep!

I’m sending this out to our whole list just to say hello to you all near and far, and to welcome the new folks on our mailing list. I know many of you are too far away to come hear us play but we like to stay in touch anyway. Please let me know if you’d rather not receive these updates. On the other hand… if you enjoy hearing what we’re up to, it’s always nice to hear back from you too!

This coming Saturday July 15th at 9:15 am until noon we’ll be playing at the Calistoga Farmers Market.
Hope to see some of your smiling faces there! We’ll be accompanied by Dan Brunetti and hopefully Terry Ann Gillette and David Chapman.

We don’t have much else lined up right now except off in the distance… a couple more farmers markets in Calistoga– one on Sept. 9th and the next not until Oct. 28th… but the one big thing we have coming up is a gig we’ve been offered at Carnegie Hall! No wait… that’s Randy Villa’s Santa Rosa House Concert… which is kind of a big deal to us! It’s a great venue and we’ve seen, heard and met many of our favorite musicians on Randy’s stage over the past several years. We’re really honored to be offered our own concert there. It’s not until Sept. 16th, but Randy tells us it’s almost sold out already. He only has 30 seats and every show’s been sold out for all the years he’s been doing this. If you’re interested contact Randy at houseconcerts@monitor.net or 707-538-1215

In the meantime, we hope you’re all well and enjoying life. Drop us a note if you get the notion, we’d love to hear from you!
Peace, Lindalou and Michael
