Happy fall, everybody!  We have had quite an awesome time so far this season.  Playing the Freshgrass Bluegrass Festival’s Band Competition was an honor and an absolute blast.  We also loved playing at the American Music & Harvest festival for our very first time.  The gigs don’t stop there though.  WE’RE GOING ON TOUR IN THE SOUTHEAST!  For the rest of the month of October, we’ll be heading down south.  If you’re in WV, OH, TN or NC, definitely be on the look out for us in your area.  We’re kicking off this year’s fall tour in Thomas, WV at the Purple Fiddle.  We’ll also be heading back to Cincinnati for a couple of days.  We’ll be heading to Bristol, TN and Asheville, NC for the very first time.  We’re so excited to play some new places and meet some new awesome folks.  Check out our “tour” page for updates.  We’ll likely be adding more shows as we’re on the road.  Stay tuned!
