Well, we had just a tremendous time in the Northwest this month. Started out a little more south in Salt Lake City, then Pickathon (our second time and we sure enjoyed performing and also catching so many great artists), a great fun show at The Tractor Tavern in Seattle, a “christening” of the new Green Frog in Bellingham, outdoor chillin’ at Kenmore, a Montana country wedding, and then more festival love at Blue Waters and Grand Targhee… Our good friend (and former bass player from 13 years back), Clayton Brown, joined us for the whole tour, on drums, kicking it up for set finales and feeling right at home since he already is a Wilder. We were overdue for a NW run, and thanks y’all for making us feel right at home again!
Our album “The Wilders” is still pretty dang new…
We’re loving the radio play and fan feedback about all the different material on this recording. You can check out the tune listings here and order direct from us on our website. Be sure to have a look at what critics are saying about it in the right hand column of this newsletter (which is viewable in our newsletter’s full version here)
Getting geared up for the Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield!) It’s less than a month away… It’s the 40th anniversary of this beloved festival. We’re excited to be coming back!
We have a Midwest tour coming up in October… Includes KCMO, St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, and the Harvest Fest in Mulberry, Arkansas. Dates are posted on our tour dates page, and more details coming in next month’s newsletter.
Drop us a line any time on our new website… or just simply respond to this email – we love hearing from you!
Hope you have a happy end of summer/beginning of fall… Best wishes from The Wilders.
