Where did the summer go?

How can it be the end of August already??!!

This summer has flown by s100_2749o quickly.  It’s been a very busy, extremely enjoyable and just recently much too hot for my taste summer!  Since my last entry we’ve toured in Washington state (with stops in Kenmore, Coupeville and Mt. Vernon – a fabulous little mini tour!)  I joined “Strung” for an appearance at one of Canada’s greatest folk festivals in Canmore, Alberta.  The AVB had the pleasure of kicking off the Canadian Open Old Time Fiddle Championships with a Thursday evening concert in Shelburne, Ontario.  I  spent the remainder of that weekend there judging the competition – a tough but enjoyable job!  And just now I’m in Boston.  We performed for the Prescott Park Arts Festival last night (Portsmouth, NH) and I’m flying home today, getting set to take a few days off before the next tour starts.  I am super excited for this weekend which is the only weekend I’ll get out camping this year, and it’s “family camping weekend” which is an annual event in my family and if I can only camp one weekend I’m sure glad it’s that one!  

It’s been a big adjusment touring without my husband, Marc.  We miss him in the band and I know our fans do too!  But since his retirment from music in MayI’m glad to report that he’s built a massive deck and a screened-in porch onto our log home!  I’m hoping to catch up on wKenmore Summer Concert Seriesork and prepare for the next tour on the new deck!  A lot of you have been asking for updates on Marc’s brewery.  I’ll keep you all posted when there’s important news, but in the mean time you can find info here: Square Timber Brewing Company.  Stay tuned for an opening date and be sure to pencil in a stop at Square Timber for your next trip to the Ottawa Valley!

The fall is going to be extremely busy and I’m looking forward to all of our tour stops.  More updates to come on all of that, but until then, I’ll be camping, you’ll be enjoying the end of this great season and we’ll connect again soon!

Thanks for stopping by…
