Hi, Slaid. I see you're going to be at Knuckleheads in Kansas City on November 7. Did you know that the Flatlanders (Joe, Butch and Jimmie Dale) will be at Knuckleheads on another stage at the same time? They don't allow people to go back and forth unless you pay for both. Hopefully, I'm wrong and you're actually opening for them. If you're playing separately, I'll come to your show. BTW, my favorite song of yours is "Hearts Break." The line "One thing remains: the terrible beauty of it all" is powerful. See you in KC. Dave from Lawrence, KS

Hey Dave, Sorry to make you have to choose. We tried to get the opening slot but it was not available. I might have to dust off "Hearts Break" - it's been a long time since I played that one. (BTW "terrible beauty" is a phrase I "borowed" from the great Irish poet, W. B. Yeats).
