2013 is half over and Solstice is approaching! Can you believe it?
June is our month for resting, recording and rehearsing, and getting ready for an intense round of festivals and music camps in July and August.
From Wichita to Colorado, to Oregon to California to Michigan and back to Colorado, then Wisconsin and on to North Carolina... I'll have to find places to do laundry.
We recently returned to Massachussetts from a Furies tour of California which featured Emy Phelps, Sharon Gilchrist and Tristan Clarridge, along with Special Guests Ben Kaufman, Renata Bratt, Piper Devi, and superwhippersnappers John Mailander, Molly Tuttle, Emily Mann and Joe Mann.
Thanks to everyone involved for making that tour a pleasure and a success. Footage courtesy of Tom Nowak.
