We had some great gigs, notably at the Spring Gulch and
Philadelphia Folk Festivals and the Cherry Tree Music Co-op.
Amy and Joe were asked to join Broadside at the beginning of May.
I took several weeks off this summer and drove around the United
States. While I was away, the rest of the band rehearsed new material
to spring on me (all unsuspecting... well, not quite) when I got
I got back from my trip just in time to rehearse for the Philly
Folk Festival. Then we started working hard on adding my parts to
the new tunes and Amy and Joe to the older stuff. Our first gigs as
a 5-piece were in September, at the Philadelphia Ceilidh Group's
Irish Festival and at the LionFish.
We attended the Northeast Regional conference of the North
American Folk Alliance in November, had a great time, played an
informal showcase which was well received, and met
Einstein's Little Homunculus.
We began the process of producing a new demo recording.
