Happy January 116th! (I guess depending on where you are, but we had snow last week and still wake up to below freezing temperatures here in the Shenandoah Valley. I like winter, I really do, if only for the clothes, but it’s time for spring and some warm weather to get the grass growing…)
A few updates:
*Be sure to check out the latest issue of “No Depression”. I’ve got a piece in there on rivers, traditions and crafty hillbillies: three of my favorite things.
*Saturday May 5th I’ll be playing WDVX Camperfest in Kodak, TN with Bryn Davies on bass and Shawn McWilliams on drums. We haven’t tried this particular line up but I’m very much looking forward to this show. The entire festival is worth a weekend trip to East Tennessee should you decide to visit the Volunteer State.
*The episode of West Virginia Mountain Stage I taped a few weeks ago will start airing that weekend as well. Mike Lipton from the house band joined us on a few songs and sounded so good I actually lost my place on one song out of pure enjoyment. It’ll be interesting to see how they edited that out.
*The “Why Ain’t Scott Miller Here?” shirts are finally making their appearances at festivals and on-line. A big shout out to all those folks who have posted photos on Facebook! Remember, if you post photos from Merlefest or Old Settlers Music Festival wearing one you can get your t-shirt money back! Cheap Ain’t Cheap; Free is Cheap!
*Shows for Summer are stacking up like the hay I need to get making, so make sure to check the website for a show/festival near you! Oh, and buy stuff. Always buy stuff…
Okay, be good or be good at it!
