RM Tour Diary #223: I'm on a BOAT!
We had a blast this weekend! Returning to TCAN in Natick, MA Friday night, we found the room packed to the gills with Sat-night-style raucous crowd. The highlight was certainly when we came out for our encore and part of the crowd was singing Abbie's new tune "Lay Down" at us! Laurie said "It's about time we were entertained up here!"
Sat was Molly's Birthday and the band woke up in New Haven to her favorite- a lox and bagels brunch courtesy of Molly's mom and brother. And then we took a ferry ride from Bridgepory to Long Island! We tried to remake the SNL skit "I'm on a Boat!"
Saturday night we played Landmark on Main in Port Washington, NY. After a great set- what a sound system this place has -we got to kick back and enjoy the enigmatic Nellie McKay play for an hour. This chick is brilliant!
Sunday we played at the Appalachian Brew Pub in Harrisburg, PA as part of the Susquehanna Folk Music Society. Our sound guy was none other than the permanent sound man from Scythian - one of our Merlefest favorites. The place was full and the crowd was wonderful. There was even a birthday funnel cake complete with candles and raspberry syrup. YUM
Look for us in a few weeks in MA and NJ!
thanks for checking in
