BOO! “Does that scare you? It scares me too.” It’s that scary time of year. If you haven’t already checked out our video “Boo!” on You Tube, you ought to do that right now.
While you’re at it, you might as well check out the Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers video, too. Share them if you like them!
We really enjoyed making both of them and we’re very proud of the results. They are as different as night (one filmed at night on a rooftop in downtown Philadelphia) and day (one filmed in the bright sunlight at Terra Studios in rural Arkansas). We are, if nothing else, a band of stunning contrast.
A few years ago, we did a radio show out of Albuquerque called, “Art of the Song”. The show was a combination live performance and interview. John Dillon and Viv Nesbit, (creators of Art of the Song) have started a new venture. It’s called the Standing O Project. The Standing O Project is sort of like Pandora or Spotify in that it’s a subscription music streaming service.
Subscribers have access to hundreds of hours of rare interviews with singer/songwriters that include Trout Fishing in America, Dr. John, Susan Werner and Richard Thompson to name a few. Live and studio cuts from these artists are also available for your listening pleasure. One of the big differences between The Standing O Project and other subscription music services is that a hefty portion of the subscription fee goes to the artists involved. The idea is to start a grass roots effort to connect singer/songwriters and their audiences in a way that works for everyone involved. If this sounds interesting to you, check it out at this link.

The leaves are already changing in the Ozarks. Glittering gold, rapturous red, and vibrant yellow are beginning to splash across the landscape. Keith will probably see a lot more of that in the next two weeks as our touring takes us to Connecticut, New Hampshire, Illinois, and Ohio. Ezra, being colorblind, will just have to listen to Keith’s rapturous ooh’s and aah’s. Most of these venues are new to us, but they sound great. We are familiar with The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago and it is awesome! Don’t forget that changing leaves means a very scary thing. Winter is coming! Snow, sleet, ice, Christmas… If you’re thinking of presents, don’t panic. We’re here to help. Check out Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, The Chicken Joe Books, and a host of other Trout stuff that is sure to please somebody on your list. Orders in November will include a free CD from us!
