Happy Fall Y'all,

Still buzzing from a most incredible weekend that started at the Bluewater Bistro and ended in Yosemite NP... A truly amazing weekend of events and an unforgettable concert in tribute to John Muir. Great to have the whole band there. Photos are trickling in and we hope to have more to share.

Fewer dates in October due to Robin and I attending Walker Creek Music Camp and Festival of Friends Jughandle weekends. However, tomorrow night at Sebastiani is a must see.

Mark your calendar for the dates below and Thank YOU for staying tuned in...

Friday, October 3 – New Skye Quintet – Sebastiani Vineyards– 6:00pm - 9:00pm
This Summer Music Series has always been one of our favorites and it is a joy for us to be able to get back to where we once belonged. This is gig marks an important anniversary for us because it was here exactly 5 years ago the StringMeister Bill Iberti first performed with the New Skye band.

We are also thrilled to have maestro Patrick Minnifield on drums supplying that "backbeat you can lose". We will definitely be in party mode. Don't miss this one!
