Hey there sweet family,

Today we’re heading out on the road, albeit not very far, for our first ever Farm Aid at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre. Walnut Creek is about 25 miles from our little country oasis. However, if the weather doesn’t do an about face soon we might as well be traveling back in time to Woodstock ’69. Rain and mud, ugh … but it will be worth it to see Gary Clark Jr. ( Thank you Stan the BBQ Blues Man ( for turning us on to GCJ via your show “The Blues is The Blues is The Blues” Friday nights on WSHA 88.9 FM ( !!
