We had a really great turn-out at the Bertolin Barn Friday night, thanks to everyone for coming out to the show! We had a great little photo shoot afterwards in that cool barn. We've got tons of great new pics for the new album! Thanks to Wren Zimmerman for her photography prowess and Ms. Pinkerton for her photography coaching. It's hard to get us to behave for 5 seconds! I'll post the pics as soon as we pick our favorites.
I hauled the pedal steel, amp, seat, and upright over to the Lonesome Traveler's tonight to load into their sweet trailer. They're gonna haul the heavy stuff for us to make more room in the Findersvan. Thanks guys! We'll be leaving tomorrow night around 9pm - I think I have first driving shift. Yeeehaaw!! I'll let you know how it goes. Do you think the Folk Alliance folks will like us as much as we hope they like us? E : )
