Family Tradition Potluck & Musical Extravaganza

I’m super excited to perform at The Lonesome Billies‘ 8th annual Family Tradition at The North Warehouse on Saturday, 9/29! It’s a family-friendly potluck party with an auction, Widmer Brothers Brewing on tap, and several great Americana bands on the bill. Party starts at 5pm; the Critters & I will hit the stage around 5:30. Hope to see y’all!

From the organizers:
“Howdy Hellraisers! It’s that time of year again. The Billies will be coming around the mountain with even more family members in tow for the 8th Annual Family Tradition sponsored by Widmer Brothers Brewing and hosted by The North Warehouse! We’re excited to christen our new venue with a night for the ages, so come on out and help us build upon a strong foundation of family and community! There’s room to run, jump, skip, two-step, fall over, laugh and get right back up again! There will be a kid’s area and we are stoked to have Red Yarn on the bill to keep them chillins chugging along. We’ll have wine, spirits and Widmer small batch beer on tap and flowing like the mighty Columbia. Get them boots polished, get them pearl snaps ironed up right, and sneak out with Grandma’s famous mac ‘n’ cheese for the potluck… and don’t forget to bring Grandma! In fact, bring the whole fan damily!!! It’s gonna be a good ol’ time! More details to come. RIGHT ON!”
