Howdy folks, Betse here… we told you back in March that we’d be playing a couple shows this summer… well, the shows are upon us, this week!
8 pm, Friday, June 29: Arts in the Park @ Larry Norvell Band Shell, Manhattan, KS
It’s a free show, and we’re happy to come back to play the park!

Manhattan, KS and click on “2012 Arts in the Park Schedule”
9 pm, Saturday, June 30: The Wilders at Knuckleheads, Kansas City, MO
This one is all Wilders, all night… we’ll be playing favorite songs and tunes from our 15 years of music so far…
Excited to play for our hometown friends and family. Thank you Kansas City!!
Go to “Upcoming Shows” and scroll down to June 30… there’s a link for advance tickets.
Then, we are offically on our hiatus. We’ve already been on a break since our shows in February/March – it’ll be great to get back together for these two nights – we wish we could teleport everywhere to share it with you all in person! We know there are so many family and friends and fans and supporters and presenters and programmers and music business associates of all kinds who had everything to do with all of our adventures over the last 15 years. We’re grateful for every experience and when we get to reunite with you all, we’ll be so happy.
INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARD: if you want to cast a vote for the Vox Populi portion of the IMAs (the judges awarded us the best Alt.Country album of 2011 recently – but the people have a choice, too!), you can check out their site:
You do have to register to vote. You will probably get turned on to a lot of other cool music while you check out the IMA site. That’s always cool…
BETSE ELLIS SOLO: I am starting a separate email list as I am starting to get out there in the world with my solo performing, and some other collaborative projects… so far it’s been great. Most recently I got to pay tribute to John Hartford at the John Hartford Memorial Festival at Bean Blossom, Indiana. I am a devotee of John’s music and songs and it was magical to be a part of this festival.
If you want to know where I’ll be performing, I’d be grateful if you’d sign up for my own list, also through ReverbNation… here’s a link:

I have my own website, and a little blog, too:
Betse Ellis Music
I really hope to connect with all you Wilders fans when I’m out there doing my FiddleBetse thing.
Now, we hope to see a whole lot of you this weekend… we’ll drop you a line when anything exciting happens, and in the meantime, be well, and be happy, and know
THE WILDERS LOVE YOU.
