WRFlogoGreat Blue Heron 2015

Have we mentioned how excited we are for our 5th appearance at The Whiskey Rebellion Festival in Washington, PA this Saturday? We hit the stage at 7pm opening for The Black Lillies. Come on out for this free show—and whiskey–there’s lots of whiskey….

It was the happiest of Herons!! What an awesome weekend at The Great Blue Heron Music Festival!!!  So many great bands this weekend–Tiger Maple String Band, Stewed Mulligan, The Town Pants, Big Leg Emma, and Donna the Buffalo, and many more. We danced, we picked tunes, and we laughed a ton and slept a little. And a great big thanks to  special guest Fiddlin’ Ray Bruckman, on loan from Grand Ole Ditch for the weekend.

We are so looking forward to The Great Blue Heron in Sherman, New York this weekend!!! And we are excited to have two special guests!

Raymond Bruckman will be joining us on mandolin for both of our sets. Grand Ole Ditch is off this weekend and Ray wanted to pick some tunes with us. Also, we are stoked to have Rachel Eddy playing and singing with us for a portion of the late night set on Friday! It’s always a treat to hear The Sisters Eddy sing together.

Happy Heron, everyone!!! Tons of great bands to see at this one–Donna the Buffalo, Driftwood, The Tiger Maple String Band, Stewed Mulligan and many, many more!


Thanks to all who came out to hear us at the Boulevard Tavern in Charleston, WV on Friday night! We had a great time playing for you all. We’ll be back around; keep checking our tour schedule.
