Getting Ready for Winter Tour

Hi, Folks (our first blog entry on ReverbNation) The snow has been piling up here in Minnesota and we're finishing up a few local shows this week and packing for our winter tour. We leave next Monday (or Tuesday if the weather looks good) and our first show is 21 hours south of Duluth in Birmingham, AL. Then we swoop down into Florida where we'll be for the next month, doing at least seventeen shows all over the state. After that, we'll fly home to Minnesota for some shows around Valentine's and then head to Memphis for the Folk Alliance International Conference which we attend every February. Then off to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and back to AZ and NM before heading home through Kansas in April!! This year, for the first time, our dog, Perry, is staying with Kate's mom in Rochester, MN. The packing is certainly a challance, but we're thankful for our roomy 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. It's quite a comfortable tour vehicle. We'll have our PA, plus two guitars, a mandolin, our recording gear and clothes for every climate. Keep in touch with us as we travel. We'd love to hear from you and would love to see you on the road!!!
