Happy fall!!! At least technically. It’s still pretty hot here today. But it is the start of fall. I have no idea what that means. I’m headed to Texas this week, to the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conference (or SWRFA, if you’re feeling hip). It should be three days of not sleeping, playing music, hanging … [Read more…]
