Dear Friends,


Welcome to Fall! 


Amy & I are excited to announce the completion of our first EP Roadside Flowers.  A week before our anniversary this past month we assembled some great talent including Sol Roots, nationally touring blues and soul artist, who found time in between gigs to record the mini record right in our living room!  Bobby Birdsong joined us on pedal steel guitar adding ghostly country riffs to the first track of the record called "Crown of The Highway" (Click on "Play Songs" on the left side of this e-mail to listen to "Crown of the Highway" and download it for FREE all October long!).  The session ended with an impromptu gospel-style hymn called "The Hour of My Deliverance" in which mics were assembled all around a slightly out of tune piano while everyone sang and harmonized.  What we were left with were four solid tracks - raw and unvarnished, but filled with great love and spirit. This is how records USED to be made and we are so thrilled to get to share these songs with you at upcoming gigs and house concerts.


Which brings me next to our next big show!   On FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12TH at Franklin Park Arts Center in Purcellville, VA we will be sharing the stage with local rockabillies Andy Hawk & The Train Wreck Endings as well as Amy's other band, the venerable Whiskey Darlings.  This gig will definitely be our biggest of the year!  If you've never checked out the Franklin Park Arts Center it's definitely worth the trip -- a cool old barn reconverted for concerts and art exhibitions.  On the 12th you will also get a chance to view (and purchase if you so wish!) some of our friend Peter Wood's amazing sculptures in the lobby of the arts center.  Preview Peter's intriguing, contemporary work here at www.rustymetal.com  Peter has kindly offered to sponsor the event along with other great Middleburg businesses like Betsey, our favorite chic clothing boutique, the Middleburg Country Inn, and Shamrock Music in Purcellville.   With that much local support, you know we are going to sing and play our hearts out!  Tickets are $10 ($5 for students/veterans) and can be purchased at the door, through myself, or by calling the box office.  Here's all the info you need to plan your visit: http://www.franklinparkartscenter.org/planyourvisit/directions.shtml  Music kicks off promptly at 8pm.  Yeeeeee-haw!


Thanks for your continued interest and support.  Our music is truly "homegrown" and we are very much a product of all the love and friendship we are blessed with through all of you.  Whether it's a big stage like Franklin Park or a small coffee house like Common Grounds in Middleburg where you'll find us playing more regularly in the coming months, we love getting the chance to share what we care about with the people we care about.  Here's to a great Fall season with more time with all of you brought together by the magic - and I am certain it is magic - of music.


With love and respect,


Jamie & Amy, The Crooked Angels
