Lawrence of Kansas

GBT played in Lawrence, KS this past weekend with Nils. Had a great time despite not feeling so hot on Friday and Saturday. Kansas was my 40th state! Still missing Rhode Island, Alabama, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, New Mexico, Nevada and Hawaii. It was wonderful to see so many friends in a brand new place! Before we made it up to Lawrence we got to visit Byron Berline's Double Stop Fiddle Shop in Guthrie, OK...
I love OklahomaThe EPIC BEARD CLUB at Pilgrim's ProgressionOn Sunday afternoon, Nils decided to call the infamous Chorus Jig. Now we all love playing Chorus Jig. Really. At least sort of. But in any case, by the end of the tune Noah had drool all over his fiddle...

"Hi, my name is Chris. This is my friend Noah.
He holds our drinks while we dance."

Thanks to Alex for her cooperation on this post.

Got back late last night from a week of crazy good food, music and dancing in southwest Louisiana. Noah, Chris and I had a set at the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette. The whole thing is hosted by our good friends The Red Stick Ramblers. During the day on Saturday folks bring their big black pots and set up for an all out cajun cookoff. Mmmm... Rosie and I took turns stirring the étouffée at Chas's house
