We had a great time at the Fiddler’s Grove Music Festival last weekend. Ellie won the Junior Double Bass competition, and Fiona came in second in the Junior Mandolin competition. Then our friend Eitan Strauss-Cohn joined us on guitar for the Junior Band competition. After two rounds, we won first place and brought home the championship ribbon! Today, we spent the afternoon in Charlotte, watching the mastering of our CD at Studio B Mastering. This is the last step in the process of making a CD–it won’t be long now until our CD is finished!
We had a great time playing in Reidsville last week at the Market Square Pops concert. Coming up, we’ll be playing at the Fiddlers Grove Festival on May 23, with our good friend Eitan Strauss-Cohn joining us on guitar. And we’re looking forward to playing with the Carolina Chamber Symphony at their upcoming fundraiser on June 4. Don’t forget to check our calendar and Facebook page for other upcoming performances. In other news, our CD is nearing completion and should be done in mid-June. Look out for information about our CD release party!
Just a reminder to everyone to come out and see us at the Piedmont Earth Day Fair, April 25, at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. We’ll be playing on the main stage at 11:00, and if you’re there at 10:45, we’ll be performing the Star Spangled Banner in the opening ceremony. http://peanc.org/earth-day-fair
We have lots to report from the last month or two. Most importantly, in February we finished recording our CD at Spot Studio. Now it’s in the editing and mixing stage, but if all goes well it should be released in May. Stay tuned for that! On February 22, we got to see Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas in concert in Aberdeen, NC, and they were kind enough to invite us up on stage for an encore. We all played The Referendum, the song Alasdair wrote to commemorate the Scottish vote for independence. On March 27, Jessie sang with The Vagabond Saints Society at The Garage in downtown Winston-Salem. She brought the house down with Tim Beeman in XTC’s Dear God. Then this weekend we got to play with newborn lambs and chicks after performing at the beautiful Stauber Farm in Bethania.
