Day one of twenty-one! We’ll be heading to Pennsylvania and back with quite a few shows along the way. The summer’s been fairly busy the way it should be. It’s still hard to believe it’s august already! We haven’t crossed the border for a long time on a Saturday and the line-up was bad. Three hours at the Peace Arch so we drove to a more remote crossing and made it through in an hour or so. It took a while to get to Olalla, a small town not too far from Tacoma for the Olalla Bluegrass festival!
We’ve played there four or five times over the years. It’s an awesome venue situated on a little league baseball diamond. Lots of families and kids and old friends and few road trippers from various states driving in to camp and enjoy the music. We set up and played a spirited one hour set to close the festival. The highlight was encouraging the dozens of rambunctious kids to run the bases of the diamond while we rocked out. Super cute! We stuck around for a little while and signed cd’s then we loaded up for the five hour drive to Spokane! Tylers friend Colton is traveling along with us on this tour working the merchandise table so we now have four men with beards in the van.
