A Fantastic Weekend…


A Fantastic Weekend...

(The Elderberries in The Vanagon, our newly-loaned schlupping vessel, heading to the weekend’s first event in SF)

We’d like to give a great big hearty “thank you!” to everyone that came out and celebrated with us this St. Pat’s. The weekend was wondrous, magical, jubilant, adventurous, other-glowing-descriptors, and even though we’re all exhausted with sore hands (and knees, says Rebecca), we can’t wait to do it again next year.

An extra-special thanks is due to everyone who hosted us, helped us acquire food, drink, or transport, came to dance hardshoe (Deirdre! You’re amazing!), sang along, or braved dance sets in the street. We’re only as good as our friends, and we certainly have some stellar material to work with.

We’ll probably be taking a break for the rest of the month, but we’ll be back in the studio and around at pubs in April, so keep an ear out for lilting melodies in the air as spring takes its full swing.

On another note, if anyone has any photos or videos from the weekend, we’d love for you to share them! Send us an email, or hit us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ElderberriesBand). Thankee!
