Our first Pickin’ & Paddlin’ of the year was a great success. It was great to start off the summer with such a bang. We raised $2,600 for the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance. Thanks to all of you who bought pint glasses and made donations for beer and a special thanks to Cascade Lakes Brewery and Deschutes Brewery for donating the kegs.
My band, the Sweet Harlots played for the event and we had a full show with Amy Mitchell on cello, John Cashman on drums and Julie Southwell on violin. We played lots of new originals from my upcoming album, House of Snow.
We had many photographers in the house and I’m sure we’ll have more pictures pouring in, but here are some of the best from the evening. And if you haven’t yet, check out the Pickin’ & Paddlin’ video produced by Hellfish TV at the bottom featuring brief interviews with Geoff Frank and Mark Schang.
