For now, The Blackbird is coming to a close as we've been for the last almost two years. Laura is planning to take a break from performing regularly for a time, and Skyler has still been away. Jan may head back up North for some gigging opportunities. So we have two more shows as the duo we've been, The Delta King Sept 12, and Ket Mo Ree in Davis, Sept. 22, being the last one. Laura will play an all Irish and Trad night with two other groups at Bows and Arrows Oct. 25, with yet to be announced artists.
Down the road, we all hope to play together again and in various combinations as well.
Hello All ! We've been performing a lot as a duo as Sklyer Blakeslee is now based in Long Beach, as well as in the Davis/Sac area. Laura and Jan have been playing Gallagher's Irish Pub downtown Sacramento Friday evenings from around 5 to 8 pm. Its is a lovely room to play, and we love the people there. And we are in Old Sacramento on Delta King in the Pilothouse every 2nd Thursday from 6 to 9 pm. Elegant place on the water !
We have the exceptional Vince Wolfe to join us on Irish flute, bodhran, guitar and voice when weather permitting. Also we are now beginning to work with a very fine drummer out of Davis for shows that require such percussiveness.
Also we are excited to be planning our first studio recording. If anyone is interested in sponsoring a recording, let us know. Also, we'd love to make an awesome music video if anyone would love to help out with that.
