Just got word that our new album Great Northern Railroad hit the Roots Music Report charts this week, debuting at number 48.
And for some reason, as I typed that last sentence, I could hear the actual voice of Casey Kasem saying it…in my head, of course. Kinda strange, but kinda cool, too.
The 48s just finished up another two-day run at the Minnesota State Fair. Thanks to everyone who came out to our shows at the Schilling Amphitheater and the square dance (with ace dance caller Julie Young) at the Carousel Park stage.
The end of the State Fair signals the official end of the summer season here in Minnesota, and that’s just a little bittersweet for us. But we’re also very excited about our busy upcoming fall and winter schedule. We’ll have a lot going on as the days get shorter and the shadows grow long!
To find out more about that, sign up for our email list (hint: the sign-up form is over to your right a little!).
Despite the record dew point (now we know what it feels like to play a show inside an actual cloud), we had another magical weekend at Bluegrass in the Pines, our bluegrass home away from home.
Thanks to Art Stevenson and Highwater and everyone who helped make Bluegrass in the Pines happen. Hope to see you all again soon!
