A few blocks from The White House...

Picture this: We're in the Nation's Capital and we're singing Will You Walk With Me and Coming Home in the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. There are more chandeliers than we can count and the place is covered in red carpet. It feels so regal. WOW! There are hundreds and hundreds of people who have never heard us before. We're pouring our hearts out and taking deep breaths to be in the present moment. There is a symphony from across the world rehearsing next door and Cate Blanchett is starring in a play when we're done. How did we find ourselves here? It feels surreal but it also feels so right and so good! What a night.

Around the ol' Home Place

It always feels good to go home. The deep woods, the twisting roads, so many memories. The Sibley clan so warm and welcoming and good humored. We played in two new places and were pleasantly relieved with the turnouts for our shows in West Hartford and in Ridgefield. Last year our friend and musician Rani Arbo gave us a great list of good Folk venues in Connecticut and these were two of the best! Long running concert series and nice listening venues. Family members were spotted around in the audiences but many new faces taking in our brand of folk, our personal songs, our connection with the land from Connecticut to Wyoming. Listening to our stories of how we met and how we took a wild ride to this music. We hear Winter calling back in Wyoming but it feels good to be home for a visit.
