Hello from the Skyline Motel in Alexandria, MN. I'm returning from the utopic Boats & Bluegrass Festival in Winona. Friday's gig was fantastically fun. At one point there were seven or eight people on stage with me (mandolin, fiddle, beatbox, cowbells, stand-up bass, and Jes and Kendl from The Blackberry Bushes singing harmonies)!
I rejoined The Blackberry Bushes on the main stage last night and rapped over their doowop/bluegrass hoedown, "Cotton Skies." Lovely bunch, they are. I might tour with them in Europe someday.
