March Madness in California and British Columbia!

Posted by bevans on Sunday, March 7, 2010

Hi again friends,

Like many of you, I'm glad when the calendar finally turned a page, leaving the snowstorms of February behind to...well, who knows what in March? It's got to be better than February however! Megan Lynch and I continue to keep a very busy touring schedule going - we'll be in both northern and southern California over the next couple of weeks before we both travel to the 108 Mile Bluegrass Music Camp in British Columbia towards the end of the month. For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, take note of a new session of the Intro to Bluegrass Jam Class that's happening at the new Freight and Salvage. Here's all you need to know and I hope to see you soon and thanks for your continued interest and support! Sincerely, Bill Evans
