Hi friends,

We’re playing the Windsor Farmer’s Market as a duo this coming Sunday, July 3rd, from 10am to 1pm.
They’ll be having a quilt and flower show. This is a really nice little market. Hope to see you there!

We have several private things lined up this summer, but just a couple more public gigs.

We’ll  play the Calistoga Farmer’s Market on July 30th, (Michael’s birthday!) 9am to noon with our pals Dan Brunetti and David Chapman.

on August 13th, we look forward to playing at the 6th annual Cur-Ville Dog Days Festival in Kenwood. What an honor to be invited back to this down home, high quality, back yard music festival.

We had a great time at the Kate Wolf Memorial Festival. Many of our good friends were playing the main stage this year. Check out  Houston Jones and Stevie Coyle. They put on wonderful shows (as always!) and our friend Karl Kummerle was invited to play a couple of songs with them which was great!

Our dear friends Diane and Ziggy help host the Sunset Radio at the festival and have invited us to play the past few years. Diane says it’s becoming a tradition. The main stage music is broadcast all weekend so folks in their camps can tune in when they don’t make it out to the stage. During the breaks on the stage they invite various musicians to play. Diane and Ziggy keep inviting us back which we really appreciate!

Our good friend Terry Ann Gillette, who plays fiddle on our CD, showed up on Sunday and surprised us. She and Karl had never met before but we invited them both to join us on Sunset Radio to play three songs. We had a great time and it was a joy to be accompanied by our two favorite fiddlers!

We’ll be continuing to play our local farmer’s markets and care facilities throughout the summer. We might also be available for more weddings, parties or any occasion where our music would fit.

Hope you and yours are all well and enjoying the summer! Have a happy Independence Day and thanks for supporting independent music!

Peace, Lindalou and Michael
