Thanks to each venue who hosted me along the ol’ road for my first-ever solo tour this week. The adventures coincided with Hurricane Florence’s visit to Southwest Virginia, where I shared some tunes with songwriter David Via & mad flatpicker, Claiborne Woodall (and replenished my collection of blueberry habenero sauce, thanks to Doug Beatty)
I moved the party to Round Hill, Virginia, where banjo boss Casey Henry & I hosted a fun-filled Neighborhood Night at B Chord Brewing Co. She blasted through her awesome renditions of Stanley tunes like “Riding that Midnight Train” and we led a double-banjo sing-along, alongside B Chord’s host, Erik Burnham on mandolin. (And of course I ended up pickin’ into the wee hours after the show)
Delaware next. First time playing in this lovely state! Thanks, Dogfish Head–LOVED your crowd–real music lovers! Had fun on your Rehoboth Beach.
Maryland’s Eastern Shore treated me to more music lovers at Avalon Theatre, Berlin Fiddler’s Convention, Globe Theatre, & WOMC 89.1 The Ocean. I also got to stay up late each night picking with new friends–which is where my heart really lies. I’m grateful to everyone who came to the shows and helped spread the word. What a wonderful community.
