When we were at the heartwarming and as ever wonderful “Annie & the Orphans” concert last Saturday Deanna having done a customary, first-pass, tour of the Park came back all gushing saying “their is a band that you will want to see”. Deanna, plain and simple, knows what I like. She was referring to this notice she had seen next to the bandstand and taken a picture of to make sure that we had it for posterity. Of course she was right. I did not know of them but this was my kind of music. I am a sucker, of long and distinguished standing, when it comes to folk music and country. Throw in Western Swing and what is there NOT to like. Yep, I wanted to see them. But, alas and alack, I am NOT sure whether we will get to see them at Cate Park! Bummer cubed! But, I already checked their schedule. I will drive 2 hours, even to Maine to see them. I just listened to them on YouTube video (below). They gave me goose bumps. Wow. They are GOOD, good and GOOD. So, if you are within 40 miles of Wolfeboro, the Oldest Summer Resort in the U.S., on Saturday afternoon hoof it over to Cate Park. You will not regret it.
