ASC Update

Thank you for all your inqueries and thank you for supporting ASC through purchasing CD’s and asking us to play at your events. We truly appreciate it.  For those of you who didn’t know, All Strings Considered was broadcast on National Public Radio in the month of June. Dan Maher from the Inland Folk radio program played three tracks from our new CD, and had lots of nice things to say about the three of us.  AND, he called our music….”SWEET”!

Our Caffe Mela gig was a big success and we are planning a trip back in the near future. Meanwhile, we have a some private gigs lined up before we’ll be out playing in public again.  For those of you who want to catch us live and in person. Here is the tentative schedule until the end of the year, subject to change of course!

Cider Mill (Cashmere)  August 30th   2-4pm

Bookstore in Chelan    October 5th   2-4pm

Dusty Strings (Seattle)   December 6th   5:00pm

We have  weddings, appreciate dinners, and harvest celebrations  in between those dates.

If you have any questions, feel free to send us an email at valleystrings@aim.com

I will have our webmaster load a more visible way to contact us.  Thank you for the feedback on the website.



Northwest Folk Life (copied from an older post)

We’re headed to Folklife in Seattle! And most likely we will be taking our brand new CD “A Place In the Heart” with us. It’s being produced as we speak. LOL…Well…we’re not really speaking, I’m typing you’re reading, but just know I am feeling the connection! We will be playing Saturday May 24th, 2008 on the Bagley Stage. This is the stage for actual LIVE, UNPLUGGED acoustic music. We play around 11:30ish. We’ll see you there!

On June 27th, 2008 we will be at Caffe Mela from 8:00 to 9:00. The Reel Deil will open the evening with two songs, then join ASC for a ripping rendition of Toot A Lute (which actually includes no tooting or luting), then ASC will play the rest of the evening.

We will have our CDs available for sale soon, and for sure on June 27th at Caffe Mela. If you love Celtic music, relaxing ballads, upbeat jigs and reels, and beautiful waltzes, then you’ll want to own this CD. All ages seem to be attracted to the sounds of guitar, dulcimer, and mandolin together. There are also a few tracks with violin, and Sherry and I do some guitar duets. These CD’s will make great gifts as well, until we can get back in the studio and do a Christmas CD!

I would also like to take a brief moment to credit my daughter Leah for the wonderful photos she took for our CD.
