Dates with an * next to them will be with Tres Chicas and the date with a ^ next to it will be with Sarah Lee Guthrie. Tres Chicas is that excellent supergroup featuring Tonya Lamm (Hazeldine), Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown) and Lynn Blakey (Glory Fountain). Sarah Lee Guthrie is Woody Guthrie's grand-daughter. I've never heard her music, but I hear it's pretty good.

I'm so excited I just can't hide it! More savvy visitors to this site will remember that I've already written about Tift once after a few of her shows back in November. Suffice to say, you should not miss her if she's coming within a hundred miles of you.

I would take this opportunity to congraulate Tift on her Grammy nomination, but considering that those awards are a complete joke I'd rather not validate them at all. So, how about this: Tift, congratulations on being so unbelievably awesome!

Stop by her website for more information and to hear song samples.
