2015 Memories end with the Lindsay Theater performance

Lindsay Theater 2Hi County Line Trio friends.  Hope you are enjoying the Holiday Season as we  are.  We just completed our final performance for 2015. …..and what a good time it was.   A very enthusiastic audience welcomed us at the Lindsay Community Theater on Saturday, December 5, for our  Kingston Trio Tribute performance.  This was our first venture to the  Central Valley of California…..and it was a memorable one.  Even the drive there gave us special meaning to our first album’s title song, “Going Home” or as it’s sometimes called, “California”.  You really appreciate the lyrics “…….worked her fields and worked her orchards, up and down her (California) Central Valley……..”.   It was especially moving to conclude our performance with that song.  We drove through some of the most picturesque and fertile farm land in the State to get to  Lindsay, which is located about 40 miles south east of Fresno just off Hwy 99.  Lots of white fences surrounded quaint and sometimes very upscale farm homes lining the highways showing off their pastures with grazing cattle, dairy cows, sheep and goats…..alternating the landscape with various crops and orchards of oranges, almonds, grapes and of course olives.  After all this is the home of the Lindsay Olives.

We began the afternoon meeting Jim, our host and the Lindsay Community Theater Manager….and Charles, a music teacher in Lindsay and another theater volunteer …..both doing an exceptional job at getting things set up and doubling as sound and lighting engineers. After the sound check we were all ready to sample some of the local dinning.  And we did….a great meal was had by all at the popular Mexican restaurant , Chinas (pronounced Cheenas) right around the corner  from the Theater.Lindsay Poster

The show was electric and the evening was exciting.  We came up a little short of filling the theater but the warmth and enthusiasm from the friendly folks of Lindsay made up for that 10 fold.  It was a GREAT night with an early  invitation to come back next year.  Thanks so much to Jim, Nancy and Charles and all the other volunteers for making it a truly memorable Holiday Show at Lindsay.  We’re looking forward to return engagement.

Earlier in November we had another very successful show at Angelica’s Dinner Theater in Downtown Redwood City. We were trying an early start time for our Sunday evening show, which proved to be a big hit.  Angelica’s is one of our favorite venues and there was a special feeling that night with the beginning of the Holiday Season.  Just having recovered from a previous nite of Trick ‘n Treating and Halloween parties and despite all the “candy hangovers” the room was filled with an enthusiastic and responsive audience….. lots of new faces and many familiar friends.  Let us take this time to thank all of you special folks who came out over this past year and continue to support our shows and motivate us along this 46 year journey of performing  Kingston Trio tunes and other 60’s folk music…..and just plain having fun.  As always, a big thanks to Peter and Angelica and Randy, the sound/light engineer, who makes us sound/look so good.

Merry Christmas to all and have a Great 2016 !

2015 Bear Valley Music Festival

Bob, Dean, Tod Lake Alpine Bear Valley 7.29.2015

Bob, Dean and Tod relaxing and getting inspired at beautiful  Lake Alpine in Bear Valley before their evening Concert on July 29, 2015

 

Hello again to all our friends,

Our performance in late July at the Bear Valley Music Festival was a huge success.  Appearing for our fourth time, after a seven year absence, we had an energized audience of 400 plus on a warm summer evening in a beautiful mountain setting.  Their enthusiasm and warm response raised our performance level to new heights, making it a truly memorable show for all.  Our bassist Mike Sander’s two very talented sons, Scott and Bill joined us on several songs, and their mandolin and banjo solos brought the house down.  Too much fun!  Thanks guys!  It was also great to see so many old friends from our previous performances.  Thank you for coming.

We would like to acknowledge and extend a “BIG” thanks to our good friends Dick and Nancy Schumacher for making our Festival appearance possible, and to Peter Krabacher for his generous hospitality in sharing his beautiful home during our Festival stay.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Full House at our recent Occidental Performing Arts Concert……………and a walk down memory lane

Peter Sterns, Kingston Trio Road Mgr

Hi friends,
We want to thank everyone for attending our show in Occidental.  It was great to see some old friends that we haven’t seen in a long time and do a little catch up.  We had a great time and met a whole lot of enthusiastic, warm and hospitable new friends.  It was a terrific venue in a beautiful setting.  We also had the opportunity to meet the former road manager for the Kingston Trio  (Peter Sterner and wife, pictured above) through the early years, and shared a few stories in the limited time we had to talk.  We hope to share more great stories with them down the road.We are always attempting to blend our personal calendars with our performing lives and are always in pursuit of new venues to perform at, as well as those we have frequented.  As always, you will be the first to know when we put something new on our calendar.  We truly appreciate your enthusiastic support and friendship through these many years and hope we’ll see you soon down the road.
Cheers
The County Line Trio
