Well, fall show season is getting ready to gear up...the season of "Er" is almost upon us; you know, SeptembEr, OctobEr, etc. I love this fall/early winter season for a variety of reasons. The cooling tempuratures & drying out of things, coming out of period of time when day to day existence is spent feeling like a bag of wet laundry. But I also get excited about the upcoming event season...some very good music fests & wine festivals, yippee!
The first of the season, two weeks from now, is Silver City, NM's "Pickamania" music festival, a fantastic assortment of music, mostly in the "americana" genre, but not limited to straight bluegrass. I've discovered some awesome groups over the years of participating in this event, as an artisan/vendor. One of my most favoritest is Birds of Chicago ....I adore them, I'm in love with their vibe, their voices, their duets. Sometimes, Allison Russell's voice makes me tear up....there, I said it.
Judge for yourself....
Come on up to Silver City, if you can, & see this band live. Plus all the others in the great lineup.....and come say 'hey' to me! :)
