After a year away we are returning to Laytonville, California in June to spend another weekend at the 25th Anniversary of the Kate Wolf Music Festival. We first played the Kate Wolf Festival in 2015 after years of hearing about it from festival goers and festival players. We had a quick turn around and came right back in 2016, and returned once more in 2018. Each year has been enjoyable and memorable in its own right so we’re looking forward to seeing what 2020 has in store. We remember 2015 for being so mother effing hot that putting on jeans and walking onto a stage with no shade was borderline dangerous. In 2016 we took our newly learned Everly Brothers set out of Santa Cruz for the first time, and in 2018 we backed up John Craigie on a set of Tom Petty songs in front of a most raucous crowd before waking up at 5am to drive to a casino to watch the World Cup.

In the three years we’ve played at Kate Wolf we’ve been Coffis Brothers, Everly Brothers, and the Heartbreakers and this year we’ll be bringing another set of music to you as we back up Tim Bluhm for a couple sets. Since we started backing Tim in 2019 we’ve talked about how Kate Wolf would be a great place to bring this band, so we’re very excited to actually be doing it and not just talking about it. In addition to backing Tim we’ll be playing a set of our own music so it will be another busy weekend at the Kate Wolf Music Festival, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. We’ve met a ton of you Kate Wolfers over the years so we’re excited to tell you that we’re coming back to Kate Wolf. See you in Laytonville in June.
