Welcome to the first edition of the 2011 National Tour Journal! In these posts you’ll find pictures and stories from the road that shall take myself and fellow singer/songwriter, Kristen Ford, across the United States of America and back in two months!
First stop: Winooski, VT – The Monkey House.
I couldn’t narrow it down to just one picture, so, I’ll tell you the story for both. We arrived in Burlington, VT, just a couple of hours before our show at The Monkey House. We met up with Kristen’s friend, Eric, and shared some conversation and a drink at a local bar…what was the name of it? Oh my. Well, it was cool, anyway. The show went well – got Dan to snap this photo of me in action, on violin. We stayed with Dan and Nancy (parents of one of Kristen’s former Chicago roommies) and enjoyed a most splendid breakfast of hand-made waffles and this stupendous syrup in the morning! Dan made sure to send us off with this mini-me sized bottle for the road – it was just so cute I had to include it’s picture. Well done, Vermont!
