"When The Sun Comes Up" - Canadian Release - January 24!
We're excited to say that our 3rd album is about to take wings and fly!...at least in Canada. This album breaks away from the traditional repertoire of our first two albums and features the songwriting (and tune writing) of all three members of the band. We start things off on January 24th where it all started for us...The Dakota Tavern! We will then be touring western BC from Jan. 26-Feb. 3, Alberta, SK, and Eastern BC from Feb. 23- Mar.10, and finally the Eastern U.S. from April 20-29 (ending up at Merlefest). We hope to see you somewhere down the road!
Thank you Germany!
We want to thank all the great folks who came out to the shows we did in Germany. We were part of the annual "Bluegrass Jamboree" a traveling bluegrass and Americana festival which is organized by our friend Rainer Zellner. We were touring with two other bands - the "Lula Wiles" and "The Lonely Heartstring Band". We had a great time with those folks, as well as meeting everyone after the shows. If you weren't able to make the shows in Germany due to geographical restrictions, we have video of our whole show in Berlin up on Youtube. You can hear Showman unleash his impressive German on the unsuspecting crowds. There's 7 video in total, but here are a couple.
Audible Songs from Rockwood
We played some shows with our friend Simone Schmidt this past spring for the release of her amazing album "Audible Songs from Rockwood". We were the band on most of the album and it was super cool to be playing the music live for the first time since we were in the studio together. If you haven't heard tell of the album, you need to! Here is an NPR article on the project. We were really proud to be a part of this project, and are looking forward to playing more shows with Simone in the near future.
