We lucked-out in Plattsburgh with a gorgeous spring day and a great turnout for the GospelFest there on May 5th.
The SUNY Plattsburgh GospelFest was exhilarating in different ways than we are accustomed-to at the festivals and concerts where we ordinarily perform. The Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir was very impressive, as was their back-up band. What a contrast to the BGP's stringband gospel sound! It was yet another musically edifying experience that not many bands of our ilk have the opportunity to be a part of. Great enthusiasm accompanied the joyous discipline of such a large choir. They were as appreciative of our musical perspective as we were of theirs--it was all good!
Next up is not soon enough; Tuesday, July 9, free concert on the Castleton (VT) Green. We always have a great time at this one, and droves of folks turn out. They have a good rain site in case of lousy weather -- but we're optimistic that it'll be grand.
After that, we're mostly in New Hampshire and Massachusetts for our next several appearances: please refer to the calendar page at our website for up-to-date concert information. There will be plenty of notification posted as we head into a busier performing schedule. Check in with us every now and again for additions to our calendar--and just to stay in touch. We always like hearing from our friends! In the meantime, enjoy the longer days and warmer weather.
