Summer Shows

Howdy Folks!

We have a lot of musical activity coming up this month. Actually, we did last month, too.  We played at the Songwriter Showcase at Hagood Mill on June 19th and had a great time--apologies for not sending out a notice to let you know about it, but thanks to those who were there.

June was filled with lots of music events not related to our usual performances.  Marshall attended both the Mt. Airy Fiddlers Convention and the Grayson County Fiddlers Convention in Elk Creek VA, where he enjoyed seeing friends, playing a lot of music and learning some new tunes.  He competed in the folk song at Mount Airy & the lap dulcimer competition at both festivals.  It was a good time & an opportunity to try some things out on a new audience.

Lucy attended the Blue Ridge Old-Time Music Week at Mars Hill College, primarily as a massage therapist, but also took some mandolin and banjo lessons. The miniclass on beginning mando was taught by Adam Tanner, and if you want to learn that instrument, and live in the Asheville area, he is a top-notch teacher.  Chip Arnold continued giving Lucy tips on 2-finger, index-lead banjo picking, and she started working on Cold Frosty Morn.  Don't expect to see her playing either of those in public soon, but possibly on down the road.

Lucy's loves of music and massage were highlighted in an article published in Making Music magazine. She was interviewed a few months ago for the article.

 This month, we are returning to a few of our favorite spots -- the Village Cup in Laurens and Downtown Coffehouse and Creamery in Mauldin.  And, we'll also be at the Pumpkintown Opry a couple of Saturday's for their two-hour variety show.   Dinner and a show for $25, including dancing by the wait staff!  Check it out! 

We also hope you'll mark your calendars for a special house concert on August 21. Our friends Gale and Dexter Goodwin are hosting the concert, and it will be a benefit for the MS Breakaway to the Beach. Both Marshall and Lucy will be participating in the 150 mile bike ride in September to raise money and awareness about multiple sclerosis. This is a chance to see us in an intimate setting and contribute to a great cause, too.

Thanks for supporting Live Music!
