Great in so many ways!! We had a wonderful time as always and got to hang out with our favorites Talantis and Jans (and D). This festival is always such a blessing in February when the cabin fever is trying to swallow my soul.
The weekend before we had another phenomenal evening at Lelu Cafe in Northport in a little Friday the 13th musical Love Triangle with duos Little Omena and One Music. I think my grinch heart grew 3 sizes that night.

So…for months we’ve been disigning a winter-themed show called “Winter’s Ghost” to accompany our CD release party for our first CD, “Let Them Dance” at InsideOut Gallery to happen on the Winter Solstice, Dec. 21st, but a big snow storm descended upon the land and Saldaje, try as we might, was not able to dig ourselves out in time. Three days later our power and heat were restored and we were able to begin anew. And now, after 2 reschedulings, we finally presented our show last night. I believe now that the delays were fate smillling upon us as the house was full and it was the best show, the audience was wonderfull and I’m feeling very blessed right now. It was a lot of work for one night, several people suggested we make it an annual show that we build on each year and try to have on or near the solstice. I like this idea a lot. I also think that we should record the songs and make them available in the future. So…it looks like “Winter’s Ghost” will continue to haunt us for a long time. It is all very exciting. We have a lot in the works.
Current Show Schedule For February 2013:
Feb. 23rd Horizon Books Traverse City
The past couple weeks we have been back in the studio plugging away. The goal is to have the CD done by spring. We are playing a full-bands worth of instruments between the two of us to really fill out the songs. We have decided to focus most of our time and money on this effort more than seeking show venues for now because we feel that it is important to get this done and have it available at the shows. If good performance opportunities come our way, we will take them of course, but we won’t be aggressively seeking them during the next few months.
