Fall has made her way to the NW all mixed up with sunshine, rain showers and changing leaves. I've been spending these last few weeks putting the final details together for my European tour and trying to fill up on extra squeezes from my little guy. It will be the longest time I have spent away from him and my heart already hurts. But, I also know I'm going to have a fantastic time performing so many beautiful places, seeing old friends and meeting new people.
As a small send off, I'm performing this Sunday at Hattie's Hat in Ballard as part of a songwriter showcase hosted by local artist, Kubby Casual. I'll be playing a short set of my songs with the Back Door Trio (Kubby Casual on drums, Sander Vinberg on upright bass and Paul Beaudry on mandolin). This is a free show and music starts at 8pm.
Then on October 6th, Rob, Dave and I board a plane and head to Europe for a full month of shows throughout Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. If you know anyone in these three countries, please forward our tour dates below. We are playing a lot of new cities this time around and it's always nice to meet fabulous people who know you fabulous people! I'll be posting photos and tour tidbits on my website, facebook, twitter and instagram pages so be sure to check in often.
I'm off to rehearsal and then extra hug and play time with Ryder. Thank you all for being here with me and thank you for letting me into your day for a few precious moments.
