Howdy friends! We hope you all had a fun and productive summer. We sure did. I guess it’s not quite over yet, but I’m just looking forward to Autumn, the best season… perfect camping, hiking, and brewing weather.
What’s been happenin’
The last couple months have been crazy, with shows almost every weekend and little time even to rehearse. One recent addition to our live set, which seems pretty natural in retrospect, is that Josh has been playing percussion during jams. Not only that, but our improvisations have taken somewhat of an unexpected ambient/experimental turn, and we’ve been having a great time with it — we’re hoping this leads us into some new sonic territory for arranging new tunes. Of course, we will always enjoy a good ol’ country groove too! We just want to make our music even harder to classify.
Fall Show Schedule
Aside from the copious amounts of outdoor activity we’ll be undertaking, here’s what we’ve got going on in the coming months (as usual, click the headings for times, directions, and other info):
- Sep 24 – Slippery Rock, PA @ Slippery Rock Dunes – Folk Jubilee Festival
Join us in the back hills of Slippery Rock for a folky music fest along with Willy Mac, Muddy Creek, Eugene & The Nightcrawlers, and Renegades!

We can’t wait to play at this hip cafe in the hills of West Virginia! The journey through the mountains will be half the fun…

Always one of our favorite venues! Just admit it: you’d be here even if we weren’t playing!

If the cozy atmosphere and truly suberb coffee bar weren’t enough, we’ll bring some tunes for you to enjoy too!
Also, don’t forget to grab our albums for your music player — or if you prefer, look for the Slipper on Amazon, iTunes, or your favorite music service.
See you all soon…
