RM Tour Diary #261: Something Old and Something New
This week we did a whirlwind tour of the Northeast, with 6 shows in 6 days. We started with two shows at one of our earliest haunts, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs. This felt like a homecoming show of sorts, with two sold out shows and rowdy crowds. Thanks to our pal Fred Gillen Jr and wife Peg for hosting us at their lake house- what's not to love about that!?
Thursday we made our way over to Old Saybrook, CT, for our 4th show at the Katherine Hepburn Theater. We love playing this classy theater and have continued to build a great audience at "The Kate", and they were particularly smitten with our opening act Matt Nakoa! We drove north Friday to beautiful Wolfeboro, NH to perform at the Great Waters Folk Festival. We spent one glorious morning by the lake and were sad to leave!
Saturday night we played our first time at new venue The Spire Center in Plymouth this is really a fabulous venue with terrific sound and we were glad to be one of the early acts to stomp around on the stage. Local fiddler & singer Eva Walsh kicked off the evening and tore it up! Sunday found us back down close to home at City Winery- our favorite spot to play in NYC. Opening the show was singer-songwriter Jesse Terry with John Paul on guitar. These are two of the nicest guys you'll ever hope to meet! We're so grateful for all the support and hospitality from these venues over the years!
Next week we'll hit a few more of our favorite spots; The Hamilton in NYC, Sellersville Theater in PA, and a new series up in Clifton Park, NY.
