Another summer festival season starts to wane

Here comes Lake Genero over the Labor Day weekend. Causes me to reminisce about the first few times I went. With my granny cart filled with a fiddle, mando, and music books. Decided to leave the books home after a few cumbersome times, partly due to the inconvenience, but also because the more I listened and tried to play along, the more I discovered that I could play along. Not a special talent. Just like language immersion. OK, time to make my list and start to get stuff together. See you there or down the road.

New Shoe String Band gigs coming up

Hey, we'll be picking and grinning and frailing and sawing and slapping at some new venues in Hudson, starting on June 11th. In the afternoon, we'll be at the Hudson Valley Distillers, a little south of Hudson, NY. Come have a tour or a tasting and enjoy some good old time stringband tunes. Then, in the evening, we're going to stay on the east side of the Hudson River at the Hudson Brewing Company.

Here comes summer!

Daryl's House Club this Sunday

Hey, the Shoe String Band is back at Daryl's House Club this Sunday. Yeah, Pawling, NY is about 2 hours from Albany, but there's lots of fun stuff to do in the area after you've finished your yummy brunch and tapped your toes through a few old time tunes. I'll be playing bass. It's easier than it looks.  :-)
