Wisco Life

Last weekend was killer, got to meet some chill people, had some awesome food, and played (probably) the most aggressive two sets ever. I don’t want to claim it’s a miracle that I didn’t break another set of strings, but…

The best part though, was getting to celebrate the marriage of my sister in music, Brooke to her wife Sasha. It was a honor to rock the reception for them!

And, shout out to SCOTUS for being on the right side of history and upholding Marriage Equality (RBG is my home-girl).

Updates from Wisconsin

It’s been a busy week for me and Maggie here in Wisconsin. As I mentioned before, we spent Saturday and Sunday at Alpine Valley. Maggie wrote about the weekend on her blog, go check it out (#shamelessplug).

I’ve had fun bringing Jacob around to all of the best of what Wisconsin has to offer, Culver’s, The Chocolate Factory, and of course KwikTrip. Maggie’s also been helping Jacob practice his letters on the signs for the County Roads.

Not only did I get to jam with my friend Astel, but I also got to help him work on some of his tunes. I’m hoping that some day I’ll get to be in the role of producer for other musicians, there’s something very rewarding about helping artists get focused and create incredible music.

Last night we had a backyard show for my parents’ neighbors; which was going really well until the heat & humidity broke my g-string (again). Thankfully I found The Music Cafe in Mukwongo, where I got to pick up a couple sets of Elixirs and support a local business.

We leave Burlington sometime Friday to head out to Boyceville so I can play at my friend Brooke’s wedding.

More updates to come!

County Road W

Getting Ducks in a Row

We’re officially in the planning/booking stage of the upcoming tour, trying to figure out our official path across the country, where we’ll stop so I can play, to do some good, or just to get a good stretch before piling back into the car (or whatever vehicle we end up using) and hitting the road again.

I would seriously love nothing more than for it to take us months to get all the way to California because I’ve got so many places to entertain.

*note to my wonderful duck-herding wife: we’re going to need a lot of strings and picks for the road. Probably a few capos too, oh, and batteries”

If you my loyal fans/friends have any ideas or requests for places we should stop on the way, let me know; this is a great chance for me to swing out to play somewhere near where you are, instead of making you come out to me. Also, if you’re interested in hosting a living room show, I would definitely love to make that happen, so get at me!

As always, thank you so much for the love and support!
