Dear e-Fisherfolk, We told our booking agent that we wanted to travel and work as much as possible and he took us at out word. We’ll be all over the map in the month of July. This next part should be read like the the end of a radio commercial. Slow down when you see an area near you or friends of yours. Word of mouth is our best advertisement and we’re counting on you to get the word out. We’ll be making our second ever appearance in the state of Idaho! We’re playing Sandpoint Summerfest as Trout and also as Birds. Trout will take a quick trip down to Pasadena, CA to play the Levitt Pavillion on July 14th. Then, over the weekend we turn into DL and the Glorious Birds. July 16th we’re at the California World Music Fest in Grass Valley and the 17th we’re in Reno, NV to play Midtown on Martin Street. Deep breath here….. After driving home from NV we’ll wash clothes and head out to the east coast where Trout will be playing Madison Square Park on the 21st and Mohonk Mountain House on the 22nd. Trout will be doing three shows July 23rd at the Barn in Egremont, MA. On the 29th of July, DL and the Glorious Birds will be making their debut at Mohonk Mountain House! We close out July in Upper Merrion PA for Concerts Under the Stars on July 31. This has been one of our favorite concert series. It’s Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds first performance there and it’s also Beth Grimwood’s birthday! Beth will be with us. No presents are required, but your presence would be greatly appreciated.
We’re Instagramps – Keith writing here- Have any of you ever heard of this brand new thing called Instagram? I just discovered it and I think it’s pretty cool. I’ve been ever so reluctant to get personally involved too deeply with social media. I’ve been sort of a Luddite being dragged into the 20th century. Now I’m trying to make the leap to the 21st century. If any of you want to… (what is it called?)… ‘follow’ me and the doings of Trout Fishing in America, you can find me on Instagram at troutfishinginamericaband. Ezra is on Instagram at tfiaband. He currently has 264 followers. I have 9. Please help catch up! This is the beginning of a brave new world for me. I hear there’s a couple of other ‘new’ things called Twitter and Facebook. I’ll have to check into it and report back later.
Troutfully yours, Keith and Ezra
