If you’re a Spotify user, check out my new curated playlist “Trad Command”. This playlist is comprised of gorgeous artists who are the offshoots of traditional music; sometimes directly, other times indirectly. The music they create inspires & delights me.
We’re so excited to visit OH & IN just as the autumn leaves begin to turn this month. It’s been a busy summer and a wonderful year and we’re ready to make sure the last few months of 2017 are as fun and music filled as possible! Join us in Nashville, Peninsula & Delphi.
We’re heading to the North East as the autumn leaves begin to turn. While we enjoy playing a variety of different venues and finding new ones along the way, this tour will be extra special for us we return to 4 of our faves that we’ve not visited in a few years!

We’ve included links & details in this post for you at a glance!
We try to keep the top post on this page fresh with what’s up next, but to be honest, we’re bouncing around so much and so quickly this summer that it’s getting tough! The next few weeks see us visit Virgina, Nebraska, North Carolina, Delaware, Alberta, British Columbia for a mix of festivals, special events, regular concerts, summer concert series, string camps…
We are extremely excited to be headed back to Canada to help celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday. So many wonderful celebrations and events have been planned and will take place (all year long!) and we can’t wait to come together with you in honour of this very special occasion for events in BC, ON & AB through July & August!

The summer is heating up and so is touring for AVB! Things have been non-stop since May… The next tours jump around enough that’s it’s almost impossible to name just the “regions”. The July newsletter (with immediate stops in PA, MI, IL & NC) is HERE!
We had too much fun answering the interview questions for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine! See the feature, hear the track, then “go outside and play” as they would say!
