We got back late last night after a fun and adventurous trek through the south. Darrin Bradbury and I had a lead off tour covering Birmingham AL, Pensacola FL, and New Orleans LA. I really love Darrin's songs - they are both serious and funny at the same time, and it's been cool getting to know him and learn his tunes. The day before we left we basically recorded an album as well, so there's that to look forward to as well. We worked at East Side Manor, and lo and behold, Gabe and his awesome wife Hannah joined us in NOLA, as did our friend Selby and the elusive Aaron Lee Tasjan, and we all convened at our fearless host, Johnny McCollum's compound in NOLA... finer times couldn't be had.
We played a show at Siberia with Alexandra Scott as well. They make a delicious pierogie there.
Darrin and I will embark on another little tour later this month. Next on the docket is Kerrville TX with Amy Speace this weekend, and then the Nelsonville Music and Arts fest the following weekend with Tim Easton... Hope to see you out there somewhere!
