Winter Greetings,
The end of the year is drawing near and we hope you’re all well! We’ve been playing much more music than we’ve been keeping you posted about. We haven’t sent a music newsletter for some time but have been trying to keep our website up to date. If you wonder what we’re up to, please check here for updates.

We have a couple of fun gigs coming right up where we hope to see some familiar smiling faces!

Wednesday December 15th 6pm to 9pm
The annual Pauper’s Feast at the good old Calistoga Inn
We’ll be playing with our friends Dan Brunetti and David Chapman in the dining room.

NOTE: As of 12/ 16 the Niles gig below has been canceled due to serious rain in the forecast. Not very inviting weather for wandering minstrels! We’ll post the new date as soon as we have it!

Saturday, December 18th noon to 3pm
Downtown Niles in Fremont
We’ve been invited back to play as wandering minstrels again!
We played there with our good friend and amazing songwriter Christopher Smith a couple of weeks ago. Had a great time and got a nice response. Our friend Michael McNevin has invited us back and this time we’re looking forward to being accompanied by our virtuoso fiddle playing friend, 17 year old Karl Kummerle, who we look forward to playing with more often!

We’ve got several private gigs coming up, but we’re not ready to quit our day jobs yet!

Last month we were inspired to post a collection of songs we recorded back in the 90′s. It’s a rough demo we hadn’t intended to release, but we felt compelled to share a few old songs, since we still haven’t managed to record a new CD yet. These songs can be listened to or downloaded for free here: http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/79749
If you’re interested in hearing about recent exciting events that caused us to share these old unpolished songs you can read about it in last months post.

We wish you all the best for these shortest days of the year and hope for peace, love and understanding in 2011.
Happy Holidays!

Love,

Lindalou and Michael
