November and December News

Hello friends and fans,

Fall is here, but it's difficult to tell in South Carolina with highs in the 80s still. But some of the leaves are changing and falling on the ground, and we have lots of acorns falling on the driveway, giving a nice crunchy sound when we come home or go out.   It's a nice alert when someone comes to visit, too.

October was a slower month for music, for which Lucy gave thanks as she needed a bit of a break to catch up around the house.  She's making progress. But the BattleAxe Band has a busy November so she's laying aside home tasks.  The BattleAxes are heading out this weekend to play at Western Carolina University on Thursday night, then back to back contradances in Nashville, TN and Huntsville, AL on Friday and Saturday.  We're looking forward to the travel, and would love to see some familiar faces along the way.

The following weekend, Nov. 12th, we'll be at the famous WPAQ Merry-Go-Round radio show, from 11am to noon.   It's with a live audience, and you can also find it on a live stream on your computer if you're not in range to pick up the  AM station out of Mt. Airy, NC.

Then the band takes a break, and Marshall and Lucy gear up for Christmas gigs, starting with two Saturdays at the wonderful Saluda Grade Cafe.  If you've never had supper there, golly, you are missing something special!  We play there for tips, so treat yourself to a fine meal and live music at the same time.

On December 10th, we're returning for the third year to play Christmas songs for the Dixie Christmas gathering at the Confederate Museum and Library in Greenville. We actually work to stay with songs and tunes written in mid-19th century and before. Fortunately, that still leaves us with lots of great material.

We're ending our Christmas tunes run with a set of music for the Ed Harrison Celtic Christmas at Hagood Mill, and then playing with our friends Brooke Lauer and Briggs Hamilton as the Wolf Moon String Band at ContraCola, the contradance in Columbia, SC.  

Looking forward to lots of travel, seeing new friends and old, and sharing our music.  Hope to see you along the way.

Thanks for supporting Live Music!
