Been a hell of a summer, ladies and gentleman. We were priveleged with the opportunity to open up for the Allman Brothers Band and Steve Winwood at Meadowbrook in New Hampshire a few weeks ago, and Toby Keith at the Bangor Waterfront the week after that.
Here's an instagram shot of the Toby Keith gig taken by our friend Sarah. It was raining but it was beautiful.
Anyway the summer was unreal great but we're gearing up for fall. We have a few really cool gigs coming up to wrap up September, this Friday at the Arch Street Tavern in Hartford, CT and then a Common Ground Fair after party up in Unity, Maine on Saturday.
Next weekend we'll be at the New England Americana Festival in Boston (read an interview with Will about the festival and about a bunch of other stuff on the Red Line Roots blog here ), followed by an awesome party in Maine on Saturday at the Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport. Get there early because there will be a square dance before we go on. We'll be partaking, you bet.
October brings some heavy road-tripping; we'll be doing a 5-week swing out through Colorado, down to Texas, back through Tennessee and have a ton of great gigs in between. One of them is a co-bill with Luke and Will's old man David Mallett at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, another is at the equally legendary Birchmere in Alexandria, VA opening up for a killer band called the Turnpike Troubadours. Another is at the equally legendary Continental Club in Austin, which we hit up last time we were in Austin to check a set by one of our heroes, James McMurtry. Good stuff.
We'll also be recording a couple new tracks when we're in Nashville with a Grammy Award Winning engineer/producer named Rich Adler, and we couldn't be more thrilled about it. We're brainstorming some cool ways to release these and a couple other tracks we have waiting in the wings, so stay tuned.
Much love to you all, thanks so much for all the support and for making it possible to keep this train a-runnin'. Means the world to us.
Catch you down the road,
