We have just returned from our annual writing retreat at Emma
Field Farm in VA, hosted by our board member and collaborator
Raasa Leela de Montebello. The retreat gave us a chance
to rejuvenate and develop ideas for our upcoming work.
We are in the beginning stages of a piece that explores those
moments when otherwise upstanding folk feel compelled to do
something naughty, and we're looking for personal stories.
Ever knowingly made a bad choice? We'd love to hear all about it!
On a separate front, Emmett's first birthday has inspired us to
create original productions for children. If anyone has
ideas or interest we would love to hear from you
August 14th and 15th will bring the return of "Short Stride"
Clyde Everett Eubanks on the washboard to play with members of
The Brotherhood of the Jug Band Blues and The Brooklyn Jugs in
the hybrid band The Brotherhood of the Brooklyn Jugs. We
will be playing in the Herb Garden Weekend
from 1 to 4 pm at
Brooklyn Botanic Garden's newly constructed herb garden.
Come on down to hear jug music and get a fantastic tour of the
herb garden with a naturalist who can answer all your questions
on homegrown herbs.
If you've been missing the Brooklyn Jugs
, the band will be having
a reunion show at Southpaw as part of the 7th Annual Brooklyn Country Music
. We will be wrapping up the festival
Sunday night, Sept. 12th.
Enjoy the rest of your summer. Can't wait to hear from you!
