It seems that every time we are in Montana, no matter what the season, the scenery is stunning. This time was no exception. The weather was surprisingly warm in the daytime with the temperature rising every afternoon to the 70’s, cooling down to freezing at night for crisp, starry nights. On this swing through the state, we played in Missoula, the Paws Up Resort, Chico Hot Springs, Billings, Bozeman and the one and only Historic Uptown Butte. The shows were really fun and it felt good to connect with old and new friends. Given that we will be playing far fewer shows in the coming year to spend more time at home, a lot of people took the time to tell us how much our music has meant to them over the years. In fact, there were a lot of tears as people expressed memories of particular shows in particular places. Maybe someone was following us around peeling onions every time we got out of the van. At any rate, it was nice to hear all the kind things everyone had to say. We played the weekend at John’s Alley in Moscow Idaho on the way home. Always a good time too.
