Also, we'll be playing Spring Stampede this Saturday March 19th, at 10am at Pioneer Farms:
"Costumed characters will show children how to carry water in buckets from the creek, how to clean rugs by beating them in the yard and how to do other chores on the Texas frontier. Longhorn cattle roam the Blackland Prairie once again. Log cabins lead off a tour of new homes in Old Texas. Our special Spring Stampede Days on Friday-Sunday, March 18-20, will make visitors feel like they’re living on the Texas frontier. The activities will run from 10-5 each day, celebrating the upcoming first Day of Spring. On the last days of Spring Break, it will be a great way for families to stretch their legs in 1800s Texas with games and crafts at our historic home sites. It will also celebrate the 149th birthday of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of ”Little House.” On Saturday and Sunday, March 19-20, a variety of historical activities, exhibits, hayrides, hourly music in our dance hall, crafts and more. Regular admission will be charged. Admission coupons can be used both days." Details:http://www.pioneerfarms.org/spring-stampede
If you wonder what we sound like here is a video of us playing during SXSW 4 years ago when Milo was only 6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riKcUMCo56w (Please note Eliot is missing from this video because he was only 2 at the time. However he is now the age Milo was, so he will be a huge part of these shows this go round!)
We hope you can join us at one of our amazing family friendly shows this weekend!!
