Nashville, here we come!
Yesterday, we started our journey from Jeffersonville, IN to Nashville at around 10am. But first, we made a vital stop at a joint called Wild Eggs in Louisville, where I met Micah the busking fiddler and then promptly ate delicious Apple Bourbon Crepes.
People in Tennessee Don't Know How to Drive in the Snow
Seriously. All along I-65, we saw a ton of cars and trucks in the median and on the side of the road. It's not that hard to just stay on the road. But then again, we're just a couple of Massholes driving in a AWD Subaru with brand new tires.
TN Brew Works
Due to the cancellation at Two Old Hippies, the only place we had to be was at Tennessee Brew Works, a small joint a little outside of downtown. This actually worked out hugely in our favor -- Not only did we have not have to rush from place to place, but the band that was supposed to go on after us had to cancel due to snow... So we got two hours to play!
It was such a treat -- The folks were kind, my cousins from Louisville were able to hit our show before going to another concert, and one of my very good pals from back in the day was able to come and join me onstage. Laura's a fantastic cellist -- we used to play in Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras together growing up, and she's always been a great friend.
The set seemed to go over really well -- and it was also really great that my cousins could come out to see us before their other happenings in Nashville. That's the thing that I really love about touring -- Being able to see old friends & family. It's one of the joys I have of being a musician.
I'm feeling good.
Sometimes I get a little sad in waves, but seeing friends & family and playing music for kind folks is a really quick fix for that. We got to crash at our friend Rebecca Correia's place last night in Franklin, TN. It's essentially a hunting cabin in the woods with its own amazing guest house. I got to take a steam shower this morning. Life is good.
