August Happenings

Posted by bevans on Monday, August 3, 2009

 Hi Folks!

I hope everyone is having a great summer - although this is already the time of year for some of us (especially if you're of school age!) where it feels like the summer is just about over. 

I'm mostly home this month after summer travels to various parts of California, Idaho, Tennessee, Kentucky, Colorado, Wyoming and Texas. I'll be head up to British Columbia, Canada in a few weeks to teach at the British Columbia Bluegrass Workshop, August 23-29. Megan Lynch, Laurie Lewis, Tom Rozum, Janet Beazley and Chris Stuart will also be there teaching, among other folks. Link to for more info.

Megan and I have a house concert and banjo, fiddle and jamming workshops scheduled up in the northern California Gold Country the weekend of August 15-16. Here's all of the info you need:

Finally, Berkeley's folk music institution the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse is moving to a beautiful, modern location in downtown Berkeley and is launching their reopening with a big weekend of concerts on August 28-30. I'll be performing at the new Freight on Sunday, August 30th in a special one-time reunion of my band Bluegrass Intentions, featuring Alan Senauke (guitar), Eric Thompson (mandolin, guitar), Suzy Thompson (fiddle) and Larry Cohea (bass). Also performing in this show is Laurie Lewis, Kathy Kallick, High Country and Jim Nunally and Keith Little. Here's the lowdown:
