Fiddling and Picking

Come join us in Lawrence’s South Park for the Kansas State Fiddling and Picking Championships this Sunday, August 25! A free afternoon of fun that also just happens to coincide with the last day of Lawrence’s Busker Fest. Who can beat a day of fire-eating AND fiddling? Speaking of fiddling, MAW will go on after the fiddling contest, around 4:30 pm. See you there!

Warming up

We’re warming up for the late summer! We’ll be playing our hometown at the Kansas State Fiddling and Picking Championships for the closing show on Sunday, August 25, in Lawrence’s own South Park. If past experience is any indication, we will be playing to an audience of fantastic musicians and music fans, including a slew of children with their faces stained with sno cones and wearing Silly Hats concocted at KT Walsh’s wonderful Silly Hats booth. What can beat that? Perhaps wine, apples, donuts, and kettle corn in Iowa? We’ll be playing 8 pm on Saturday, August 31 at the AppleGrass Festival up in Council Bluffs, IA, just over the border from Nebraska and just south of Des Moines. Hope to see you all at one or both!

Back from our mini-tour!

We just got back from our mini-tour: Manhattan Kansas, Cobden Illinois, and back to Lawrence Kansas.  Auntie Mae’s did right by us and we hope to get back there again, since it is in our home state.  We had a great surprise in Cobden, just south of Carbondale: a great venue, The Old Feed Store, where they treat the musicians well and the crowd is generous and fun.  We hope to get the chance to come back.  In the meantime, we’re off for a couple of weeks, but do tune in to KCUR in Kansas City for Central Standard on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  We’ll be doing a show.

Winfield bound!

It’s getting to be that time of year, so we’re packing up our tents and coolers and heading out to the musical refugee camp commonly known as Winfield  (formally known as the Walnut Valley Festival: http://www.wvfest.com/).  The whole band will be in the Pecan Grove by Friday evening, and we’ll be around through Sunday early hours.  We’re looking to play Stage 7 and any other pop-up stages and busking corners we can find.  Hoping for 72 degrees with a cool breeze, expecting sweltering heat and some diabolical combination of thunderstorms and drought. Sound great? See you there!
