National Release of Green Girl

Over the next several weeks, Powderfinger Productions will be promoting our latest album, Green Girl, on Americana radio programs across the nation. Our house is cluttered with stacks of CDs, press materials, and cute little green picks featuring the wood sprite (aka Green Girl) from our album cover. In a week they, along with our musical fate, will all be in the hands of hundreds of Americana DJs. This will be our first national CD release, and coincides with our mini-tour of Southern California the second week of June. We are also expanding our performance calendar across the Bay Area, with gigs coming up in Marin (Sleeping Lady in Fairfax, May 23), the South Bay (4th of July at Lake Vasona in Los Gatos and the Fiddling Cricket series at Mission Coffee with Michael McNevin in August) and the East Bay (a split bill with Big Wide Grin at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, date TBD). Watch our calendar for more details. We had one of our best shows earlier this month playing at the Acoustic Vortex house concert in Marin--a great venue with a fantastic crowd, thanks to the hospitality and hard work of Bruce Victor and his merrry band of acoustic music promoters. We also caught a great show last weekend at Caren Armstrong's songwriter series at Left Coast Cyclery in Berkeley with John Haley Walker and Michael McNevin. No offense to the performers, who were wonderful as usual, but the most important thing about the show for us is that for the first time in 13 years, we were able to leave our ever-maturing kids at home without a sitter, marking the long-awaited chance to look in the paper on Thursday and actually go hear some music on Friday--life continues to offer up little rewards for its survivors.
