What a fantastic summer so far! We had our usual great time at Camp Bluegrass (thank you Paula Carr and Alan Munde), and returned home with Nate Lee, Bill Evans and Tim May in tow to play our annual benefit for KRWG Public TV and Radio. Thanks to a record crowd for coming out to support public broadcasting and our acoustic super group.
August finds Steve at Colorado Roots Camp starting Aug. 7th in Divide, CO. He’ll continue north playing shows primarily with duo partner Tim May but also one with guitar player Randy McSpadden.
