- Big night coming up at Hale's Brewery & Pub this thursday night! (10/18) RedDog will be opening the evening followed by the debut of a new Seattle Stringband the Barn Owls, singing and playing for your pleasure. Stop by for this show and you'll be able to tell your grand children that you were at the Barn Owls first gig! The Barn Owls are Brittany Newell on fiddle (of Nettle Honey fame), Kate Lichtenstein on guitar (of the Hillbettys, Gloria Darlings etc) and Hanna Traynham on banjo (recently transplanted here from Floyd VA). Plus if that wasn't incentive enough to stop by on thurs, this will be the last chance to catch an oldtime show at Hales this season (we'll be starting them up again next March). As always, Hale's fine beers and great food will be available in the seating area in the lobby near the Brew Tanks. Hales is at 4301 Leary Way Ave NW (between Fremont and Ballard) and the show starts at 6:30 and is over around 9pm. No cover but something in the tip jar would be much appreciated! See you there!
- RedDog's new CD "Nine-Tail Cat" is finally available for purchase on the site, just go <here to buy (free shipping) or listen to some sample tracks. Recorded last summer at Avast! Studio in Seattle with our favorite engineer, Jonny Mendoza, spinning the dials.
- Our CD "Hard Times" was one of David Fricke's "Fricke's Picks" in Rolling Stone (RS Issue 1096). Read David's review on the Listen page. This CD has very limited distribution so one of the best places to get it is right here on this site.
- Doug has a new web journal devoted to his violin making. Go to www.violinisto.com to keep track of his current projects.
Here's Doug and Cary and their "Court", leading the annual Pumpkin Parade at Ox Bow Farm in the Snohomish Valley, marking the official Oct 1st opening of the pumpkin patch for the year! We had a great time providing music for their annual harvest festival that day plus got to sample some great food!
Here's Cary checking out the Pumpkin Art at the Ox Bow Farm's Harvest Festival.
