Rustic Riders - September 2013 News We had a great time at the Loon Festival at the VIC in October! In November we have a few duo gigs, but we are continuing to practice new material with Joe and we look forward to sharing it. Thank you everyone who donated to our MS Bike Team. We had a wonderful ride in Columbia County on a beautiful September Day. It was great meeting new friends the next day at the Saratoga Peace Fair and to share the stage with some of my idols especially Joseph Bruchac and Dan Duggan. In October we took a break and visited our new granddaughter Emma in Minnesota. All the MS research support has really helped her mother! We’re playing closer to home in November. We look forward to seeing you around. PS As you do your Christmas Shopping remember that CD’s make great gifts! Support you independent music makers.
