Journeying to the Bitterroot Scottish Irish Festival 2014

I am sitting in a lovely little house near the festival in Hamilton, MT. I’m curled in am armchair with my laptop, warming up with a cup of coffee, and thinking about all you lovely people who may chance to this bit of blogosphere. The view out the window right now….IMG_0048

It has been a cold, wet morning here in the Bitterroot Valley. We played a set at 10am and though my brain knew what to do, my fingers could hardly perform those cuts and rolls on the jigs! Somehow, we brought Portland winter weather with us (not sure how that happened?!).

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Our trip started off on Thursday in hot and dry area of Oregon, where we visited with visited with friends.
