Bob and I are still in Portland, OR. I thought I could send out this week’s newsletter on Tuesday but things have piled up and unfortunately I had to push it later than I wanted to. If you are around Bozeman today, on Wednesday, please come down to Brigade to join Craig Hall, Finn Carroll, and Josh Poole!
These events are outside of Montana but close enough to the Treasure State also there are some familiar names so why not? On July 30th and 31st at Whitney Center for the Arts in Sheridan, WY, Eric Richards Bid Band Summer Swing ’21. Check the Whitney Center’s FB page for the details. And at Art on the Green event in Coeur d’Alene, ID, John Roberts y Pan Blanco will be performing on July 31st and August 1st! Here is the Art on the Green’s FB page.
