Spring has sprung again!

Greetings friends and music lovers,
Our Wisteria is in full bloom but our Lilacs are still asleep. Usually they bloom at the same time here. It was an odd Winter though, with not enough rain, but we’re grateful for what we got.

We’ve got some nice gigs coming up. Our last one in February was a big success. We played the 3rd annual benefit house concert in memory of my Dad’s birthday and raised almost $4000 for DCWC’s hospital in Nepal! Thanks to all who came and made that happen. Your generosity is extremely appreciated and will really make a difference.
Thank you also to new folks who signed our mailing list.

On Sunday, April 6th from 1pm to 3pm
We’ll be playing as a duo at the Epicurean Connection in Sonoma.
This is a new venue for us and we’re happy to have been asked to play by Josh Windmiller of North Bay Hootenanny. Thank you to Dale Geist of the Cur-ville Dog Days Fest for making that connection for us.

On Saturday, April 26th from 11am to 2pm
We’ll be playing at Elizabeth Spencer Tasting Room in Rutherford.
They’ve invited us back to play for their annual Rosé Release party for the past 4 years. This is always a fun event with great food and wine. We’ll be accompanied by our fantastic fiddler friend Terry Ann Gillette.

On Saturday, May 3rd from 9am to noon
We’ll be back at our hometown Calistoga Farmer’s Market.
Our old friend and great guitar player Dan Brunetti will join us.

Happy Spring and lets hope for more rain during the week and sunshine on the weekends while we’re playing outside! :~)
We hope to see you somewhere along the way!
Lindalou and Michael
