Well, it seems to be official! The Shut Yer Trapp band will be live on Studio 10, Friday, January 24th at 9am! That’s channel 10 for the local Tampa Bay area… Not quite sure why they wanted US to represent the Heritage Village Folk Festival, but that’s OK for us!
So be sure to tune in to local affiliate WTSP (CBS) on Friday morning at 9am! While we’re not sure exactly what we’re playing yet, it’s gonna be a hoot!
Saturday was a hoot! We packed up our gear and headed for Brooksville, for the Civil War Re-enactment, the Brooksville Raid. This isn’t exactly a strict, uber-authentic re-enactment, but we always have fun while we’re there. And yes, as usual, it was pretty darn cold and so windy that we had trouble keeping our music books open.
So we set up at the end of sutler’s row and played a few tunes for the folks milling about. Lots of smiles, lots of cameras flashing and we even got some of the youngins to come up and pluck a few strings. Some of the kiddies were flat out scared of the Bass! Scaredy cats! It ain’t gonna bite you! (Maybe fall on you, but it won’t bite…)
All in all, it was a great day to visit some of our friends, play some great music, listen to the other musicians and watch the great battle!
