Last minute Porch Fest gig

Hi Folks,
We were asked at the very last minute to fill in for our dear friend Michael McNevin at a Porch concert tonight in Napa. We’re sorry he can’t make it due to unforeseen circumstances but glad we were able to change our plans and be there for him. I have attached the original flyer for the event. We’re going to do our best to be almost as good as the award winning singer/songwriter Michael McNevin. We’ll play a set of our songs and then there will be a jam afterwards, so bring your musical instruments and voices if you’d like to participate! Hope to see you there!

This is a potluck starting at 7pm tonight July 28th at Rod and Cindy’s house: 2076 Coombsville Rd. Napa.
Call Cindy for more info at 707-226-5859

We’re heading to Napa now to enjoy the festivities of Porch Fest where several of our friends are playing today!
In Harmony,
Lindalou and Michael

P.S. We’ll be playing at the Calistoga Farmer’s Market again on August 10th.

Summer music

Happy 4th of July!
We’re playing a private party tonight at our 97 year old friend Catherine’s house where we’ll have a great veiw of the Calistoga fireworks. The lightening display looking west from our house last night was as spectacular as (and more scary) than any fireworks display. Hopefully no serious damage was caused by fires. It sure has been hot and windy.

We spent last weekend at the wonderful Kate Wolf Music festival camping and jamming with good friends in the heat. Great music all weekend and relief from the heat by swimming in the river.

Michael’s arm is healing up and he’s been playing his guitar again and trying not to over do it.
We’ve been asked at the last minute to play the Calistoga Farmer’s Market this coming Saturday due to a cancellation. We were already scheduled to play the following Saturday. This coming Saturday also happens to be the Dalai Lama’s birthday…so we’ll sing him a birthday song!

Here are the dates we have coming up:
July 6th -9am to noon
Calistoga Farmer’s Market

July 13th -9am to noon
Calistoga Farmer’s Market

August 10th -9am to noon
Calistoga Farmer’s Market
Then we’ll pack up the PA and drive to Sebastopol where we’ll set up the sound system again at 2pm to play a private Blackberry picking party put on annually by some dear friends.
We’ll have to miss the wonderful Cur-Ville Fest in Kenwood this year where several of our good friends will be playing! Boohoo! We just can’t be in two places at once or play three gigs in one day much as we love to play!

We have several other private parties and my neices wedding to play this summer but we’re always happy to be invited to play and hope the dates work out.
We hope you’re all keeping cool and enjoying the summer. Come by and see us at the farmer’s markets if you get a chance!
Love, Lindalou and Michael
