Stringdusters in Memphis
Dusters head to Memphis tonight. We're playing at the Bartlett Performing Arts Center as the Grand Finale to their Pickin' Picnic Bluegrass Festival. We're gonna freak out some bluegrass traditionalists and turn a lot of new people on to the Stringdusters. Tickets still available, let your Memphis friends know we're coming and if anyone knows Justin Timberlake, tell him we want him to drop by and sit in with the Dusters.
Initially I planned to take a few laps at Stanky Creek over in Memphis prior to the show but it's been raining for days and I've got a wicked case of poison ivy so I'll just be riding in the van today. Big thanks to everyone who came out to the Belcourt Theatre Thursday night. The Dusters threw down and it was good to see a lot of young people out at the show. Stringdusters Cafe, Coffehouse, East Coast Eatery Tour is locked in. Next week and a half are off so I'll be trying to get on the bike and stay away from the ivy.
