Happy Independence Day!

Summer Greetings,
Just in case any of you are nearby, we’ll be playing at the Windsor Farmer’s Market tomorrow from 10am to 2pm. This is their special 4th of July market with a quilt and flower show. We’ll have Dan Brunetti accompanying us, and we’ll also be celebrating his 60th birthday!

On Saturday, July 31st  from 9am to noon,
We look forward to playing the Calistoga Farmer’s Market again with the 3 D’s, Danny, David and Duncan.

We spent last weekend in Laytonville camping with friends at the Kate Wolf Memorial Festival. Had a wonderful time and heard abundant great music. Also met and played with a 16 year old virtuoso fiddle player named Karl Kummerle. We had seen him once before at the Strawberry Music Fest when he was 12 and wondered what ever became of him. Well he surprised us and showed up in our camp and we fed him and played music with him off and on all weekend. We were invited by our friends Diane and Ziggy to play on the Sunset Radio show they were hosting there at the festival. We invited Karl to join us and had a blast playing 5 songs on the air. Karl played circles around us! What a treat. Can’t wait to get the recording someday!

Hope you’re all well and have a great Independence Day. Hope to see you along the way.
Love, Lindalou and Michael
