News from the road! New Songs and UK Tour!

Hey Guys!

Samantha here….we’re in Bozeman, Montana today and just arrived at the Rainbow Motel after a beautiful drive through Yellowstone (and it didn’t disappoint: sightings of buffalo, moose, reindeer, and black bear all within 3 hours!)….We (the Cat Calls and I) just got finished with a great weekend at Winnipeg Folk Festival and are on our way to Vancouver Folk Festival right now….my guitar got stolen in Winnipeg though, which stinks, but overall the weekend was full of great music and great people….If you feel like donating to help me buy a new guitar, you can visit the Feed the Muse page that we have set up for the van fund and just put something in the comments after you donate about you wanting it to go into the guitar fund instead of the van fund…The link to that website is: http://www.feedthemuse.net/samanthacrain

I’ve got a busy few months ahead. Right when we get back to Oklahoma, I’m hoping on a plane to play at the Southern Fried Festival in Perth, UK and the Summertyne Americana Festival in Gateshead, UK….Then I’m heading out to San Francisco to record the first of a series of singles I’m recording this year. This song is gonna be produced by the one and only John Vanderslice! I’m really excited about that. Then rushing back to Oklahoma to record more with mastermind Brad Fielder and then more recording with the wonderful dudes of Blackwatch Studios…. We are really excited to get all this new music to you…and then…..towards the end of October….is my first extended UK tour! For a whole month in October and November, I’ll be opening for Adrian Edmondson and the Bad Shepards all over the UK and then, hopefully, there will be a few Europe shows too….

Well, that’s all I can think of right now….but thanks for everyone’s continued support…we can’t do any of it without ya’ll! Lovessssssss
