Friends— Happy New Year. 2015 was such an amazing year for Cross Current and it would never have happened without you. Your presence at our shows and your encouragement mean everything to us. Thanks so much to you all!
Highlights of last year included finishing what we are now calling “the first CD” and the wonderful release party so many of you shared with us. Rosana Costello joined the band, another highlight of the year, adding her rich sound to our music. We were honored to be part of many benefits, including the We Shall Overcome concert with the Low Tide Drifters. We owe special thanks to mentors and friends who have supported and helped us so much: to Brent Alan who coached and engineered us through the CD, and to the amazing musicians who added their talents to it. Also to Pete LaVelle, Dan Plaster, and KLCC radio, and Rockin’ Rome Hamel from KRVM for having us on air and sharing our tunes with their listeners; and to Beth Wood and Keith Greeninger for their ongoing mentorship and inspiration. Nathan and Kate and all the Drifters have also been our great friends and comrades on this musical journey. They all have our gratitude.
Now 2016 is beginning and a lot is already happening. Cara Brasted is joining us on fiddle as often as she can. We’ve got new songs and our new microphone Louise, and new gigs coming up. We hope you’ll join us at one of these next few shows. We’re looking forward to singing with you as much as we can this year.
