Hello from your Mamas! After putting hundreds of miles on the ole trusty Subaru with a busy summer and early fall of festivals and southeastern listening rooms, racking up hundreds of sound checks, hitting countless truck stops, scenic overlooks and seedy motels and crashing on many kind people’s couches, we are delighted to share with you that we Mamas will be returning to some of our favorite local venues this coming weekend. For our Charlotte fans, we hope to see your faces at the Evening Muse this Friday evening the 14th, and the following evening, Saturday the 15th, we hope to see all of our beloved hometown fans (you!) at the Grey Eagle in Asheville where our buddies Town Mountain will warm up the stage for us. We can’t wait to step back onto our favorite home stage and share some of our new songs and stories from the road with you. And as if that were not enough, you can also look forward to our hearing our fiddle player Anna Bauman-Smith make her songwriting and singing debut with us on Saturday evening. Wahoo!
Just giving you a heads up that January looks like it is going to be a very busy month…what with recording our new album and all…That’s right, you heard us! We will be going into the studio in January to record our long-awaited second album. Look for it later in ’09 and you can be sure that we will invite you to celebrate its release with us. Other things to look forward to in January are our New Years Eve performance at the White Horse in Black Mountain, as well as our show at Jack of the Wood on Friday January 9th, which also happens to be Miss Jane’s birthday. She especially requests your presence at this show and will accept gifts in the currency of whiskey 😉
