As summer entered full swing this June, we had a whirlwind of performances and exciting news. We kicked off our month with the announcement of our upcoming Central Time Tour, which will be blazing a trail through the midwest USA this September!
We also had the pleasure of sharing a few performances in St. Louis, including our appearance on A Prairie Home Companion. Now we’re beginning an exciting month of July, which will be filled with performances around the USA and Canada, as well as the beginning of our Summer 2014 European tour!

A Prairie Home Companion…Take 2!
We had a fantastic time performing on A Prairie Home Companion in front of a packed crowd at The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis, MO. This was the second time we’ve had the pleasure of playing on the show, and it just keeps getting better. Thanks to everyone who came out to watch or tuned in to listen!
If you missed the show, or if you’re yearning for a midwestern melody to jump-start your day, you can watch our performance of “Central Time” on A Prairie Home Companion here. Additionally, you can stream the whole show on APHC’s online archives.
Thanks for taking the time to read our July news bulletin…we hope to see many of your faces out on the road in the coming days and weeks!
See you down the road!
