We have had a very busy June! We have played at numerous private parties, a children’s concert at the library, the farmer’s market, and an anti-fracking party. We even spent a day lobbying in Raleigh on behalf of the Dan River. We are off for most of July. We will be using the time to learn some new songs, then traveling to Scotland to see our Scottish family and attend music camp on the Isle of Skye.
For anyone who wants to support a good cause and have a good time, come see us from 12:25 to 1:05 at the BioTech Place on Patterson Avenue, downtown Winston Salem, for b/Eats on the Street brought to you by the Arts’ Council and Brenner Children’s Hospital Arts for Life. Hope to see you there!
We were deeply saddened by the disastrous coal ash spill on the beautiful Dan River near Eden, NC. We were honored to be asked by the Dan River Basin Association to play at the River of Coal event at Wake Forest, an information session about the ash spill. And we felt really privileged to get to play with Laurelyn Dossett there.
