We are glad that spring is finally here and we can begin to spend time outdoors again, meeting old friends at festivals and gatherings! We had some great times this winter and got to play at some exciting new venues. We celebrated Valentine’s Day at Wolf Hills Brewery in Abingdon, sampling their product and meeting some very friendly folks. We had an exciting ride home as I-81 was becoming covered in snow and blizzard like conditions! Glad to get home safely that night. Recently, we had the opportunity to do a show at The Harvester in Rocky Mount and had a wonderful audience there.
We continue to play out at local venues, sometimes as a duet if the performing space is small. We are staying involved with the Blacksburg scene and have been hosting several local old time jams as well as the old time jam that happens on Sundays at the Floyd Country Store. We played our first political rally to protest the Mountain Valley pipeline that threatens our beautiful hills and streams here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We learned a protest song written by Robin and Linda Williams and enjoyed having backup singers and audience sing-along on the chorus. While performing, we had a good crowd of flat footers and it felt like a real throw back to the 1970’s!
Lots of cold snowy days have kept us inside perfecting songs and tunes and recording for our second CD. Just some final touches and it will be ready to send out for production! We are excited to play in May for Blacksburg’s Fork and Cork Festival and the barn dance put on by Blacksburg Square Dance. In June, we will be entertaining at several venues during the Mountains of Music Homecoming Festival that is sponsored by the Crooked Road. Hope to see you out dancing or joining in on some jam tunes!
