What an honor to perform at Volkswagen’s Autostadt to celebrate their 15th Birthday! There were amazing performers from all around the world – acrobats, musicians, beatboxers, ribbon artists twirling from the ceiling in beautiful form, incredible fireworks, and lots of wonderful people celebrating! There was an excitement in the air, an amazement that left people wonderstruck (including us)! We played our Folk/Americana/Country/Bluegrass tunes to the warm and smiling audience. Playing with fabulous friends and musicians, Alex, Bettina and Will elevated the night! Here is a video and a few pictures from the performances! Tammy*
What a refreshing place with a cool breeze coming through -DünenhoFestival in Cuxhaven, Germany near the North Sea! There was a bird sanctuary out by the sea and so we took the early part of the day to walk out, through the muddy patches, with some new friends, to explore the coast. We got just close enough to see the coastline, but we would have needed a bridge to make it over the big puddles towards the end. Two nights in a row, late in the evening, we were greeted by the smiling faces of warm, joyful and lovely people! They clapped to the music, sang with us like they were a proper choir and came up each night afterwards to talk afterwards. One night a great musician and a brand new friend of ours, Samuel Weber, joined us on drums and percussion and he added some beautiful flavor to each song! It was a pleasure to play both evenings and we hope to return again next year!
Back in 2000, as I was playing music in Hannover, Germany at The World’s Fair, I met a German guy who really loved music. For the next several years I could always count on him to show up at at least one show along the tour in Europe 🙂 It was a pleasure to surprise him and his wife with music at their wedding reception in Mannheim, Germany the day after we arrived! Even with the jet-lag we had such a great night! – Tammy*
