Bluegrass Parkway Tour Update #2

by | 25 Jun, 2009

Well I just can’t believe where the time is going but it is difficult to fit in any time to do this properly. Sorry about the gaps but here’s what we’ve been up to. We have played lots of shows since the Festival of the Bluegrass, namely Nicholasville, Bean Blossom Indiana, Georgetown and Renfro Valley. The schedule keeps us busy but we are having a ball of course. Bean Blossom was a huge success and we were received very well. After a rushed trip up from a gig in Kentucky we were there ready to perform our first spot with 30 minutes to spare.

The performance went off just fine and we were made to feel right at home by the crowd. We had rain at this first performance but we were told people tune in on their radios from their campers and listen to your performance anyway. It is always a great experience to be a part of Monroe’s own festival and it can be quite moving just being there.

The second performance on the main stage was even better and we got a request for ‘A Girl From The South’ from the audience. After Bean Blossom we were back down to Georgetown Kentucky to a fantastic cafe called the Upbeat. This show was absolutely packed and the crowd just got right into it from the first song. This was really encouraging because we were starting to get people follow us from show to show. We have started to build a bit of a following.

After a trip to Nashville we played at The Red Barn in Renfro Valley.  Of course we drove down the Bluegrass Parkway to I 65 to get there. This place has a lot of history. On our last tour we got to perform with Bobby Osborne here.

More to come soon folks.
