Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013Hello darlin's!
Happy Rocktober! Are you as excited as we are about Fall?!? We've been working on lots of exciting things here, including lots of fun shows and an upcoming crowdfunding campaign for our debut album, which you can pre-order starting next month! Stay tuned for more about that... Meanwhile, looking back on a really great September, some highlights of our recent touring and music making adventures included the amazing HeatherFest (see videos here and here), Redstar Union (shot in HD video to be released soon!), and the New England Americana Festival (pretty sure there will be pics and video soon, we'll post them on Facebook - follow us)! Thanks to all of you who came out recently to support and dance with us!
Love and delta blues!
