Well, we're back from another successful International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Business Conference week! This year we spent 4 days touring down to Raleigh in Nate's Ford Taurus (lovingly nick-named "Dolores The Taurus), stopping to play in NYC, Gladstone NJ, Charlottesville VA and Fountain NC. The week of IBMA was a whirlwind of fun and business; we played 11 showcases throughout the week, attended the business conference panels and jammed until the wee hours almost every night. Needless to say, it was a week of little sleep. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights we ran a late night showcase room in the Marriott, with co-sponsors Boston Bluegrass Union and Lonely Heartstring Band. We performed in the showcase room each night alongside some of our favorite bands including, Special Consensus, Chris Jones and
It's that time of year again, yes! We're heading down to Raleigh, NC again for our second IBMA as a band. We have a fantastic schedule lined-up in our afterhours showcase room at the Marriott hotel on Wednesday Sep 28th, Thursday the 29th and Friday the 30th. Here's our poster for the room which we're co-sponsoring this year with the Boston Bluegrass Union and the Lonely Heartstring Band. We'll also be playing a few other showcases during the week, check us out here...
We've just returned from a great week of shows in sunny (and sometimes not so sunny) Florida! We played in Fort Lauderdale, North Tampa and the Baygrass Bluegrass Festival down in Islamorada which was in the northern part of the Florida Keys. That was an especially beautiful part of our trip. The drive from Miami down to Islamorada was on a single one lane highway, borderd by marshes and ocean on either side. We saw tons of wildlife, including one huge epically orange iguana and lots of pelicans. On the last day of the trip we had a day off in Islamorada and spent the day opening coconuts by hand and using them to make pina coladas. Thanks so much to Jim, Marci, Robbie and Armando for hosting us, we'll be back again soon!

We just got back from a great weekend at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Convention. We were honored to be selected as 2015 NERFA Formal Showcase Artists, and had a great time playing in the Manhattan Theater on Saturday night. We also did several late-night showcases in the hotel, and got to hear lots of really great new folk music. Thanks Jake Jacobs for the photo from our formal showcase.
Wow! We had a fantastic time at IBMA. Our Wednesday and Thursday night Mile Twelve Marriott showcase room was a great success, thanks to all the amazing bands that played there. We also had the chance to perform at the IBMA Youth Showcase Stage and the CBA Suite. Here's a photo from our Saturday set at the IBMA Youth Stage.
