The Mayflies family is so pleased to announce that Samantha Blickhan (who sang harmoniously on our last record, A Thousand Small Things) is now a bonafide member of the band! You may not see her at every single performance, as she does play with the wonderful Wandering Bears and the vivacious Vagabonds too.
However, she is a fine addtion to our ranks.
In other news, we recently discovered that our talented fiddler, Natalie Brown, is also a talented piano player...so look for some more change-ups in our instrumentation! Natalie just released a great solo record, by the way, called "Violin Crossings" Check it out! The Mayflies do a funkified version of' Devil Went Down to Georgia' on it.
In other, more additional, extra news, The Mayflies have begun work on our next record! We are in pre-production currently, and will be going back into Flat Black Studios in early December.
Well, that's about it....oh yeah.....come to The Mill in Iowa City on Halloween eve 10-31, as we will be dressing up as, and attempting to channel the music and energy of one of our biggest influences...The Grateful Dead. This show should be a spectacular, so please spread the word and come on down!!
