A long time ago, we were driving our red truck, Robert Red Ford, to Johnson City, TN to play at the Down Home Picking Parlor. We were at the Bluebird in Nashville the night before. Somewhere in the steep, TN mountains, our trusty red truck broke down. The oil turned into pancake batter! We had to rent a U-Haul truck to continue our trip to. We got to the Down Home about ten minutes late for the gig and had no time to shower. The house was sold out and everybody was waiting for us. The audience even helped us unload the U-Haul and we had an amazing night. We’ll be at the Down Home Picking Parlor on Saturday, Nov 7th. It’s been way too long since we’ve played in Johnson City. If you live in the area or have friends close to there, we’d sure love to see you. It should be a great night! We promise you won’t have to unload our van for us.
Back to our roots with Wheatfield!
A little more recently, we’ve been playing with the band Wheatfield, the group Ezra was playing with before he met Keith. The last few years, Wheatfield has been touring in the icy month of February. As a result, we’ve been snowed out of some of the gigs. This year, we’re going to be doing a mini-tour in November! That should solve the snow problems. We’ve got some new original material that we’re going to be playing as well as some of our classic tunes. There’s a limited number of dates to catch Wheatfield so make your plans early.
Just looking around the internet, we found this Bruce Springsteen quote. “You can go from doing something quite silly to something dead serious in the blink of an eye and if you’re making those connections with your audience then they’re going to go right along with it.” It almost seems like he’s been to a Trout Fishing in America show!
