Picnics on the Porch and Sugar Maple Fest

Last week ruled! Thanks to everybody that came out last Friday and helped sell out the kickoff of our Picnics on the Porch series with Stock Cafe at The Hideout. We also had an incredible day at the Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival in Madison, WI on Saturday. What a treat to get to play music in such magical spots! Sugar Maple highlights included running into friends from Montana that we hadn’t seen in ages and watching The Down Hill Strugglers, Finnders & Youngberg, and Aoife O’Donovan and her rocking trio. Hope to make it back to the festival next year!

We’ll be at The Hideout tomorrow night, 8/12 from 6-7:30pm for week two of our August residency. The show happens rain or shine and Dan Fuchs will be joining us on dobro. You can also find us Saturday night, 8/13 at 10:30pm at the Honky Tonk BBQ in Pilsen. See you out there!
