Molasses Creek at the Theatre in Washington
After rendezvousing with our hosts Rick and Kaye Kohler, we rolled into the beautiful town of Washington, VA (established 1796) for setup and sound check. This wonderful little venue is situated in the idyllic Rappahannock County, with rolling hills and stone walls that evoke images of Scotland and Ireland. The town was originally a trading post on the frontier and was surveyed by a 17 year old George Washington in 1749.
After the sound check at the theater we adjourned to some friends house for a lovely early dinner, and then returned to the theater for a sold out show to an enthusiastic audience.
A creation by Ocracoke's Roy Parsons at display in the Kohler home.
We were getting close to Marcy Brenner's home turf, and many of her friends as well as some blasts from the past from Fiddler Dave's college years were there.
The next morning the crew feasted on pancakes with home ground flour, bacon, eggs, peaches, and maple syrup at Rick and Kaye's (Fabulous hosts! Thank you!), and made an attempting at a wee bit of exercise with a walk in the woods.
Right now we are sound checking at our next concert stop in Frederick, MD at the Cultural Arts Center. Another SOLD OUT show! Showtime is at 7 PM. Hope to see you there!
Thanks to our new tour sponsors!
