He does not understand why I would leave my home and family and 'work' through the Holiday Season. I've tried giving up Caroling in Sun Valley, but I just can't :) It's become not only part of what I do, but also who I am. I can't think of a better way to spend the Holiday's than in Sun Valley Idaho singing my vocal chords into oblivion!
I've yet to convince Cal that he should join me in Singing Christmas Carols and ringing handbells, but he's not buying it.
*you may be wondering why a Christmas post already? Well, Christmas starts early around here with gettting music ready for December, and I was just confirmed as a Sun Valley Caroler again this year, so I'm giving all my family a heads up to book their rooms in the INN now ;)
Cal and I are also working on a Christmas project that we hope to finish sometime before next Christmas. Hey, it's busy here in the Fall, you'll have to give us some extra time:)

Even though my friend Liz wasn't familiar with very many songs played that night, she still loved the concert and bought some CD's which I think is half the point of live music. I left feeling totally inspired and equally covetous:)
We stayed at THE HAMPTON INN and thank goodness for air conditioning and down comforters:) We awoke so refreshed that I checked on line for tickets to the UTAH STATE FAIR which we had driven right by on our way to the concert the night before. I was pretty sure THE BAD LARRY'S were playing there, so we got a schedule, discount admission online and because we were feeling adventerous we got all day ride passes to the CARNIVAL! After making ourselves sick going on ride after ride, but forgoeing the "redhead special" we dragged ourselves to THE GAZEBO to enjoy THE BAD LARRY'S. They were the perfect antidote. Not only is their set list entertaining but their witty banter had us cracking up. Liz loved them as well and we were glad to be able to pick up their newly released CD after the show. Scott and Jay are always so welcoming and invited us to tag along to lunch at THE RED IGUANA. I wish I had some pics of our adventures that day, but alas my camera chose to die on me. Even though there is no picture proof, the food was divine and the company fantastic. It was the perfect ending to our girls weekend. Thanks Scott and Jay! We listenend to our new CD's the whole way home. I'm already planning my next concert adventure.

Shan, one of my favorite people, came out to support us. It was great to chat with him for a minute between sets.
Thanks for the pictures Shan!
Cal and I are excited that we now have the flexibility to play in either a band or just as the two of us. We loved playing for a dance, it seems like people don't get out and shake a leg often enough. It was such a great day.

We also caught some of the magicians free stage show which the kids LOVED and the Hypno Hick who suffered sunstroke for his craft. Another random thing was our last conversation with the guy running the sound for the fair, he and his cutie companion were saying how familiar Cal looked and lo and behold they knew each other. Jim Calhoun, son of Jim Calhoun who did our radio interview at RMAF last year. They had met years ago when Cal was playing the bars with a band. Jim is now running sound and putting together his own album, so we hope to hear it soon.
We met some great people at the fair and around Pinedale, Marbleton and Big Piney. Of course the Fairboard who brought us here, and the little waitress at the Patio Grill who took some good natured ribbing and big tips from the boys, and we can't leave out Kathy with the water conservation booth. We talked bugs and frogs and swimming in the rivers of Wyoming.
I took the above shot of the fenced in trees because they were the only shade we could find out in the parking lot, and that fence looks identical to the one my Grandma Dixie built up on Slippery Hollow Heights to keep the deer and dogs out of her trees.
All right. THIS had to be my FAVORITE random thing about our trip to the Sublette County Fair. Our rooms at the Marbleton Inn. They were so awesomly vintage that I had to take some shots of the pristine clean bathroom vinyl! We had this exact pattern in my Mom's bathroom when I was growing up! We loved the beer box at the door labeled "Muddy Boots", the ladies at the front desk with the dog, housekeeping! and the tub that didn't fall through the floor even though by the noise it made you were sure it would. These things made our trip so memorable and we'll be telling these stories forever. If you ever need to stay in Marbleton Wyoming, I highly recommend the Marbleton Inn, you will not be dissappointed.

If you happen to find your self in Star Valley this summer, stop by the Farmer's Market at the Haderlie Farm. Traveling North on Hwy 89, look to the west just as you get out of Thayne and you'll see the signs for the market. I do believe it's open from now until the first of October, every Thurs. 6-8(ish). Don't miss out on supporting local agriculture, businesses and of course music.

They were so cute and serious.
Cal's little squirt was the funniest, he kept getting off his bike to pick up candy in the road, and when he was told not to he informed the men helping the kids, "O.K., then you pick it up for me and give it to me later."

Cal called me tonight with the latest news on our Taxi critiques. Here is one we have never heard before. The person writing the critique loved Cal's songs and voice and compared him to Ricky Skaggs. We'll take it;)We have also been told to 'find our niche' which in this critique rs opinion is County Folk. I can't say I disagree. Of course after being compared to Ricky Skaggs, we went on You-Tube to take another listen and compare and we stumbled upon this little gem, ALBERT LEE. We are no longer ignorant of this fantastic picker.

Thanks to everyone who supports us, and if you didn't make it to this show, we hope to see you later this summer. We have a small show in town for a church group and then we're booked for Big Piney/Pinedale and Preston and the Fair Showcase in Montana. We'll update the site with new bookings as they come.
