Having a great time tooling around Germany with the band and one feisty but affectionate Yorkie. Meeting some truly amazing people, seeing some gorgeous countryside and also learning some important German phrases like, "Tell it to your grandmother!" Somehow managing to write some new songs on the mandolin in between shows and really looking forward to starting in on a new CD when I get back to Iowa. Lots of plans this summer, I'll be at the Wild Goose Festival in North Carolina in July and Women's Red Rock Music Festival in Utah this August and working my way west from there.
