We played a lot of music this weekend. A lot of new songs. Susan was brilliant. Cathy sat in for a couple of songs (a sublime version of The Weaving, and wonderful drums on Solstice).

We decided at the last minute to do that open mic last night. 3 songs, all on the 12 string ...

The Well Stone
Horizon
Spinning Skies & Mirrors

A nice, solid set.

The highlight was two young women, each doing a separate set. One was 12, one was 13, and they were amazing. Killer voices, decent guitar chops, and both just natural performers. Utterly compelling. Then one of their Dads came on and tossed out some acoustic punk. One of the highlights of my year. We need to go back more often.

We premiered a new song at the end of the show. You can hear it and a lot of other new songs by supporting our Patreon page!

Wow that was fun. 800ish miles on the car. 4 sets of music. Lots of fun conversation. The funniest moment of the weekend for me ... I was starting a song and Phil Parker, who was in the front row, leans forward and, with much amusement and amazement in his voice says "you're in standard tuning!"

That was fun!

It's always a little odd, playing to an audience who you can't talk to directly. Still, our friends always have something to say, even if it's typing. Thank you everyone for being in our world for a little while. We're off for almost a month, so songwriting will happen. We hope to get all of the songs for The Midnight Contingent done in the next week or so, and to start rehearsing for the recording. It's only a year later than we had originally planned, but life happens.

What we played tonight!

We went to the Vinyl Cafe Open Mic Sunday night. It is the successor to Open Mic at The Space For Ames, which was also called the Ames Progressive at one point.

Lizzie and I went in front of an audience for the first time as Cheshire Moon at the Ames Progressive ... 5 years ago to the day. That time we played 4 songs, 3 covers and an original, this time we played 2 songs.
