Changes…(musical chairs!)

Dear friends,
We sure hope all is well with you and yours.
Due to some major life changes in our family, we’ve recently made some changes in our plans. Normally we spend Labor Day weekend at the Strawberry Music Festival, which has been our tradition for over 10 years now, but this year we decided to sell our tickets to some friends. We really felt the need to have some time at home with our family.

Back in July I sent out some dates for gigs we had lined up.Those dates have been changed.We’re still playing at The Santa Rosa House Concert but not on the 16th. Thanks to Randy Villa for being so accommodating and understanding. He had already sold out the show and was afraid we’d lose half our audience if we changed it. Fortunately that didn’t happen. There were only a few people who couldn’t make it on the new date. Thanks so much to all of those folks for being so flexible and supportive! There are still a few seats left if anyone else would like to come.

Santa Rosa House Concert
September 23rd– doors open at 5:30, potluck dinner at 6:00, music starts at 7:00.
Admission is $15.00. Reservations required.
Call Randy at 707-538-1215 for details or email him at houseconcerts@monitor.net

We’ve also got a radio interview that same day in Santa Rosa. We’ll be playing a few songs live on KRCB 91.1 at 2:00pm. For those of you far away, if you want to listen, it will stream live on the web at KRCB.org

We had been scheduled to play at the Calistoga Farmer’s Market on Sept.9th but that has also been changed. Dan Brunetti and David Chapman will join us on guitar,vocals and drums and we’re hoping Terry Ann Gillette will be available that day to accompany us with her wonderful fiddle. She’s in demand by several bands these days!

Calistoga Farmers Market
Sept. 30th from 9:00am to 12:30.
and again October 28th (same time.)
Call Karen at 707-942-8892 for details.

We hope to see some of you out enjoying yourselves! Be safe and always remember to let your family and friends know you love them while you have them around.
Peace,
Lindalou and Michael
