RidgeFest has officially tanked. No word on how Blue Rodeo is taking the news that they don’t get to close the show for Mike Aubé. But if they work hard and stick with it, I’m sure they’ll go far.
In other news, we have five newborn kittens at our house. Any takers? Hehe. Also, the garden is mostly weeded now. Beets are plentiful, carrots nearly adult-sized, sugar snap peas and beans are coming on. The 11 meat birds (aka the Chicken McNuggets) are three weeks old and growing like mad.
We’re going to take some of the scheduled time from RidgeFest to get into the studio this weekend. But I’m also hosting at the Wick Pub Open Mic Friday night and the performing at the IncrEdible Picnic in Summerville Sunday 12-3. Mmmm…gardening and playing venues with great food. My life is looking pretty delicious.
Writing for the album has been stalled at that excruciating “almost done” stage for a while. I have a whack of half-finished songs that don’t seem to want to get finished. But some of them have potential, I think, so we shall see. I seem to be leaning towards more story songs, and they tend to take a little longer ’cause you gotta figure where the story’s gonna go.
