Here is our write up for the Sublette County Fair. We are listed as "The Broken Spokes" because thats how we showcased last fall. Since then we've simplified things as "The Linfords" so people know who we are. We're really excited for the lineup at the Fair. We'll be heading out Friday morning to catch "The Doo-Wah Riders" and hope to take in some of the other acts booked this year.

Singing to the Goats

Cal and I sang at the Thayne Farmers Market on Thursday. There was plenty of community support and lots of home town goodies to buy. It was a fun night, can't say I've ever sung ON a barn door TO a goat before, but theres a first time for everything. Cal's Boy saw said goat wandering around the market and took him (her?) by the leash and didn't let go, that was entertainment in itself. We sold quite a few CD's and tried out some new songs. There's nothing like playing live to show you your weaknesses. We had a great time and really love the unique opportunities that are in our beautiful little Valley. There are many reasons we live here, and singing to goats at the farmers market is just one of them!

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.

Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth of July weekend. It started plenty early with us singing "God Bless the USA" at the Thayne flag raising. The best part by far was the community singing Patriotic songs together, I remember every time I sang one as a kid and later on in my Glenn Miller shows. I was tempted to do full out choreography, but restrained myself;) We then got the kids ready to ride their bikes in the Thayne Town Parade
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."

So they did. What a kid.
