Sticking, stamping, and wrapping up CDs for the folk DJs. Lots to do before we leave on Saturday. Home states tour starts on Monday!

Just a note to say that we’re still out here! Just been doing a crazy bunch of work on the house, the jeep, the DJ mailing for Picnic in the Sky, etc. Some doctors, dentists, smoothies, and glimpses of friends in town in there as well. Looking forward to the home states tour coming up in August! Sending love and hugs to our friends out there in the universe.

Sometimes the fairy tale comes to you! Our porch when we got home last Saturday.


So excited about the Whippoorwill Festival tonight. It’s probably the only festival we’ve ever played where you can also learn to bake bread over an open fire. They’ll have a Pie auction just like in Coal Miner’s Daughter, too! Thanks to Kezia Davies for the swell photo of our house concert with The Good Intentions in Liverpool (last Wednesday). Time flies! http://www.whippoorwillfest.com

We’re driving to the Heathrow Travelodge and we’ll leave Britain tomorrow. What an outrageously wonderful time we’ve had with you over here. We can hardly believe our luck in friends. Thank you all so very much! Photo at the North Wales Bluegrass Festival by John Williams.

We’ve crashed John Les’s banjo workshop at the North Wales Bluegrass Festival and caught him playing Chicken Ridge! Had to join in!

As usual, we are celebrating our independence from Britain by spending the 4th in Britain! Second day of the beautiful North Wales Bluegrass Festival in Conwy.
