The Blackberry Bushes, friends of mine from Washington state will be playing their award-winning bluegrass music in downtown Dickinson, ND (click poster for all details). If I'm not trucking I plan to open up the night with a couple of my new songs.

If you live in western North Dakota I'd love to see you at the Odd Fellows Lodge. Please tell all your friends 'cause it's gonna be a great show.

Just played a midnight show at Alma Stevens' farm outside of Bergen, ND. Alma is the 90-year-old, 100% Norwegian grandmother of my pal Alex Stevens. I met her at a Rhubarb Festival that I played at in Bismarck a few years back, and she's been a big fan ever since. Her favorite four musicians, she says, are George Strait, Chuck Suchy, Daniel O'Donnell, and myself.

The Stevens' are having their annual family reunion. They're all night owls, so I played from midnight 'til 2 a.m. and then I ate supper. For breakfast they fed Hana and me the best crepes we've ever eaten.

For the next three or four days I'll be driving south, east, west, and north to deliver live fish to Minnesota and Calgary.

Roll Out, Cowboy will be showing tonight in Atlanta and Portland, OR.

Today I've been clearing brush and digging trenches in North Dakota. A herd of elk came through our property last night! I've never seen elk here before--must be an omen of good things to come. : )

Hana and I are about to drive to Lake Sakakawea for some swimming and boating with our friends Ed and Barb Danks.

Here's a friendly blog post recently written about me and Kimya Dawson: http://lettersmixtape.blogspot.com/2010/06/sandman-kimya.html

Note: This website's homepage has been broken for about two months. Thus I'm unable to update show listings. This will change soon, I hope.

I've returned from my Canada vacation. Now I'm just trucking, clearing trails on Killdeer Mountain, and enjoying life in the cabin.

Two nights ago Hana and I arrived in Wells, BC, for the ArtsWells Music Fest. Yesterday was wild. We spent most of the day selling belts, boots, buckles, and shirts from our makeshift "Vintage on the Run" booth. (We made about $350!) In the evening Roll Out, Cowboy screened. Afterwards I played in a little church that overflowed with awesome Canadians who gave me two rousing standing ovations. This show was one of my five best.

Today I'm having bad allergies.

Hana and I are loving our vacation!
