As you can probably tell by the lack of posts in the past week, summer has just about ended for me. I’m back to the day job, so time is against me. Though it is nice to have money in the bank once again.
Taking a minute now to reflect on a truly excellent summer. A summer of first, seconds, and long time traditions continuing on. In particular, Strangers and Liars has had it self a very productive summer of excellent gigs and opportunities. Just for starters…
In June, the band made it’s first trip to the Steel City, having an excellent time playing Howlers Coyote Cafe alongside some Pittsbrugh friends, Henry Bachorski and Modern Nature.
This year, we were invited to be part of the 33rd annual Gathering at Chaffee’s. This two day music festival was a blast, both in the rain and in the sun. We were excited to make our debut at this excellent event. And we hope to be back next year.
My favorite summer spot, The Edinboro Lake Resort, opened doors for a phenomenal summer. Strangers and Liars has made no less than four appearances at the lake resort this year, some great weather nights, some not so much, all of them an absolute blast. And speaking of The Edinboro Lake Resort…
This years Songwriter Sunset was a massive success! In the second year, we had 28 musicians, including 5 songwriters making the trip from Pittsburgh. It was a privilege to surround myself with such talented musicians and excellent people.
And all this has been the tip of the iceberg. The summer was incredible, and I’m sad to see it go as I’m sad to see most go. But I’m excited to for what more is to come. And I have plenty more to talk about! I’m just tired of typing right now.
