During our three-week hiatus (our first since the start of the pandemic) we both contracted, endured and thankfully recovered from Covid-19, despite our continual care to stay masked, even outdoors. It goes to show just how aggressive and contagious the latest strain of the virus is, and we’ve once again had to cancel, postpone or move some upcoming indoor shows to outside venues.
We return now with our 123rd livestream – a special edition! Since our This video captures our MainStage set at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, July 30, 2022, and our Gospel Wake Up Set from the festival the next day, Sunday, July 31, 2022, and includes our post-festival musings and commentary. We were thrilled to play before a live audience and to play with some of our dearest musical friends…it’s been a long time!
We’ll be with you in the YouTube chat window for this show, as the show was pre-taped and edited together, and we look forward to catching up with you all there. If you’re watching on Facebook, the stream will be smoother on YouTube, and we encourage you to join us.
Scroll down the YouTube description after the show aris to see a list of the songs we played along with writer credits.
