We've had a very active summer and it seems like not much time to sit down and blog about the past few weeks! Since our last post we had the honor of playing two nights at the Ozark Heritage Festival (one night as Shortleaf and the other with Snorty Horse), then it was off to KC for an event at the North KC Community Center. That next weekend we traveled to a new venue for us, the Lil Black River Cafe in Grandin......(amazing, high-end food menu....I had the rack of lamb, yum). This past Friday night, again a new venue for us, the lovely CSA Millsap Farms Contra Dance with Gloria Johnson Scarlet and off the next night, July 4th to the quaint town of Alma Missouri for their festival! We met so many terrific new friends along the way and caught up with old ones as well! Michael has a whole new crop of "fiddle groupies" in Alma! He was beaming from ear to ear that night! We get a week off, then starting July 17th, we have two weekends in a row in KC at The Tasteful Olive, O'Malleys Irish Pub, and Contra Dances with Snorty Horse in Columbia and KC respectively.
