Another dear friend from Northland College, Janie Miniutti and her partner Steve are hosting us for a show at their home. Looking forward to meeting Steve and being in orbit with Janie's spunk and joy.
Pete was Mead resident, my freshman year in college and I think we had some Sociology classes together. We have not seen him since our Northland days. We are going to the furthest point North East in our US tour to find him, his family and friends. This September 30, house concert will be a grand finale to a month of events for National Recovery Month.
Andy is looking forward to playing solo music for our new friend Bill and his community. Bill is an old friend of our Chequamegon Bay friend, Jill Lorenz. They are big fans of Floydian Slip and Room2Groove. Maybe... we'll see Jill in Maine??? That would be awesome!
Star and I were in outdoor orientation together our freshman year at Northland, and the rest is history; dorm mates in Mead, spring break road trip with a van load of friends (The Big Chill) to Stars home in Florida, housemates with Star and Stephen during college at the Stone House and after college at 8th Street, and their wedding. There have been a couple of visits in between but we have lots of catching up to do. Looking forward to finding all the Portland area has to offer. www.bonappetit.com/story/portland-maine-city-of-the-year-2018
We tried to do a show with Geoff and friends, last December in Key West. An unfortunate ankle injury took Geoff out of the race. This fall we plan to meet up with him at his home in Charlestown MD. Hope the event and weeks leading up are injury free. Geoff is a Northland alum. It will be fun to catch up.
Andy and Paul played in bands together all through their time at Northland College. Paul has recently come back to the Chequamegon Bay for the annual FEQ party. We are super excited to meet his family and see a bit of his life post- Northland. Also hoping for some guitar/ bass jams. "Take the load off Annie."
Andy knows Andy from Northland College days. Andy Riecker and Gregory are hosting 2 shows; One at their home in Burlington VT, Hinds Loft, the second at their getaway in Woodbury CT, Chinook Hill. I look forward to meeting them and Andy to catching up- a long time has passed. We are grateful for their hospitality and the opportunity to share music with these two communities.
Scott is a Northland Alum. I remember him from several classes that we took together. It was not a surprise to find him in a environmental community. Lucky for us the community regularly hosts house concerts. We're excited to see Scott and learn more about his special community, Mosaic Commons.
Tim Doyle introduced Barb into our lives years ago. She is a friend of his from back home in Greenfield MA. It's been a long time and we look forward to reconnecting with Barb and some mutual friends from Northland College who will be at the show. Couldn't resist adding the photo of young Tim.
The Higgin's family is legendary in the neighborhood where Andy grew up. Mary moved from the south Chicago suburbs to Springfield a long while back. We look forward to catching up with her and the community she calls home and meeting her heard of pups. It is rumored that Mary has an Irish pub in her basement. A Snug away from home.
