It's been a long time since I said hello to all of you and I hope you have been well! Summer seemed to have jumped a rocket ship and blasted us through camping, visiting, working, playing, swimming, resting, relaxing and jettisoned us into fall's beginning of school, mother nature's spin of sun, wind, rain and the colors changing slowly in the trees. I had an amazing summer, but I am ready for fall and a host of shows here in Washington and overseas that are coming up fast so hold on tight....
WASHINGTON... Rob and I will be performing at the cozy North City Bistro and Wine Shop in Shoreline on Thursday, September 22nd. They have amazing food and a huge selection of wine and this show is open to all ages. My friend, Shasta Bree will be joining us with harmonies on a handful of songs and I'll be sharing a few new tunes. We play 7pm to 9:30pm.
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, mark your calendars for our annual Holiday Hootenanny and Sing-a-Long with the Von Piglet Family Players. This year’s Hootenannies at Egan's in Ballard are scheduled for Friday, December 16th and Saturday, December 17th. Early shows for the kiddos at 7pm and 9pm shows for the "big" kids. Reservations are recommended.
EUROPE... Rob, Dave and I are headed to Europe in October for a three week tour through Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands. For you folks in Europe, please check our schedules and be sure to mark your calendars for a show near you. We do have a couple open dates left that we are hoping to fill with a house concert or venue. If you would like to host or have a venue you would like us to perform in, please let me know.
And for those of you outside of Europe, if you know folks in Europe, please forward them our tour schedule listed below. We'd love to meet as many new folks as possible this tour and of course we will be chasing castles again which always leads to tales of adventure, history and a whole lot of selfies. This year my sister, Laurie, will be joining us for a portion of the tour so she will not only help us take some pretty fabulous photos of our journey (she is an amazing photographer) she'll also be our guest Castle Chaser and that always leads to good stories to tell. You can follow our adventures on facebook and instagram. Check in often!
Thank you all for being here with me and thank you for letting me into your day for a few precious moments. I am a lucky girl to have you all on this adventure with me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
