Fun starts Tuesday, May 3rd at The Nectar Lounge in Seattle for A Night of Bluegrass and Front Porch Americana, featuring The Last Revel (Minneapolis) and Sweet Lou's Sour Mash (Seattle). Thursday May 5th it's Brewgrass at Cascadia Homebrew, where we'll be joined by Joe Capoccia (Olympia) and Montgomery Brown (Austin). Then a bunch of Northwest stringbands descend upon Olympia for the weekend, including The Student Loan, Wild Rabbit, The Blackberry Bushes, Left Coast Country, Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons, our co-hosts The Pine Hearts, and many more!
We're not resting up afterwards, either. We'll be back in Seattle for a Bluegrass & Beer benefit for Northwest Harvest (May 14th). And we've got some big trips east planned! First to play a Rainshadow Running race finish line (May 21st-22nd) and then for two shows in Idaho (June 2nd & 3rd, John's Alley in Moscow, and Eichardt's in Sandpoint!)
