We hope this newsletter finds you well. We recently returned from a quick weekend tour in North Carolina. It was great to play old favorites and some of our newest songs. Thanks to all of those who came out – it was a memorable time and excellent hospitality.
We are busy planning the next couple of months for Storyhill. As we mentioned in a previous email, we’ll be taking a hiatus from the road after our commitments through May. After much deliberation, we’ve decided to put touring and our cherished Storyhill Fest on the back burner for the time being. But before we say farewell (for now), we have a cruise in the Caribbean with A Prairie Companion AND a final tour through Minnesota. Here are the details:
A Prairie Home Companion Cruise – March 2015
We are thrilled and honored to be joining Garrison Keillor on the next A Prairie Home Companion’s Eastern Carribean Cruise, scheduled to sail March 14-21, 2015. Only limited suites are remaining, so if you’re thinking about joining us, book your tickets now! We’ll be making stops at Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Maarten, and Half Moon Cay. Information and ticket sales are available here!
Later this spring we’ll be in Minnesota for one last tour before taking a break. Along for the tour will be our good friend and the amazing artist, Connor Garvey. Known as “CoGar” among the songwriter community, Connor has been a stand out staple at Storyhill Fests and recently took home top awards at the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Solarfest, and the prestigous Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
Here are the tour stops:
Thursday, April 30 – Stillwater, MN: The Loft at Studio J.
This will be an intimate show in a unique space in downtown Stillwater. There are two ticket options: one includes a VIP experience before the show – including appetizers, a cash bar, meet and greet, and a special gift from us. The other is a concert only ticket. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1197526
Friday, May 1 – Zumbrota, MN:The State Theater.
A great theater just south of the Twin Cities. Always a great audience in Zumbrota! https://www.vendini.com/ticket-software.html?t=tix&e=e3095e7504184b2dfa628a4b0f922465
Sunday, May 3 – St. Paul, MN: The History Theatre.
This will be the final show before the hiatus. This is the theater where our double live CD Reunion was recorded back in 2001. There’s not a bad seat in the house!
These will be our final shows together for the foreseeable future. We’d love to have you to join us as we close this chapter in our career together.
Thanks for all of your continued support through this transitional period. It truly means the world to us. We so appreciate the energy and enthusiasm for Storyhill – and all the years of diligent work and dedication that our team has put in to keeping the boats afloat; it is both humbling and inspiring.
Although we don’t know yet what will happen after these swan song events, we are clear there will be a future for us and for Storyhill sometime down the road. We love to make and share our music with you.
Chris and Johnny
