Tour Songs - Episode 15

Were back, live from Stuart's Draft, Virginia. This is one of our favorite stops on the road. Our great friend, Beth Howell always opens her door for us. She is amazing, and we are deeply indebted to her for all her kindness. It's a beautiful small farm house with horses, cows, sheep, and peacock. If we're within 100 miles, this is where we stay.

Anyway, we had some downtime before our show at The Clementine in Harrisonburg, VA, just enough time for a video blog.

Earlier in the month, we were listening to the radio and Elton John's Rocket Man came on, Chris immediately thought we should start playing it. And we finally got around to it once we got to the farm. I hit some rough notes, but I think it's got a vibe. Enjoy...

See you out on the road...

Tour Songs - Episode 14

Oh how we love Folly Beach, and a huge thanks to Richard Brendel for hooking us up with an oceanfront condo right on the beach. We've got one more night to soak it all in. Tomorrow will be a sad day for Yarn indeed, but till then, lets have some fun.

We got to town on Sunday after an amazing gig at The Pour House in Charleston on Saturday night. Thanks to all who came out. Ricky and I spent yesterday roaming the streets and the beach, we hit up just about every bar in town. But nothing beats the good old Surf Bar. The night out ended fairly early so we decided to hit up the condo and get out the guitars and bring you another installment of Tour Songs.

And seeing as how Lucinda Williams has been getting a massive amount of air time in the van, we felt she needed another blog. So here you go, let's go to Jackson...
