Almanac Road Trip: USA Music Tour

 

As from next Monday I will be winging my way to the United States for a tour of some of the major, and not so major, musical festivals occurring during my time there.

 

I plan to post regular updates of my travels and my musical experiences of the festivals to the Footy Almanac website while I am away. I have included my itinerary below and the links to the various music festivals I’m attending for those who may be interested.

  1. Mr Stan Kluzek says

    I know you and Brian will have a great trip,
    Looks like a bit of a once in a life time experience
    Don’t let Brian fall over anywhere. You’re not big enough to be picking him up
    Cheers
    Stan

  2. Jealous as but very happy for you too. Will devour the festival line-ups but keep an eye and ear our for Zach Bryan, playing at Chattanooga and I reckon a couple of the others. He’s about the best new (not that new) Americana act I’ve heard this year.

  3. This looks fantastic!
    Have a great trip, Col.

  4. Have a Bon Voyage Col. You’ve certainly paid your dues this season. Looking forward to your reportage.

  5. Good on you Col.

    The Woodieguthriecentre certainly sounds like a place to visit; El Paso; Marty Robbin’s words,with the imagery, are filing my head now.

    This is one great road trip Col. Enjoy, as I’m sure you will. I/we will enjoy reading your touring posts.

    Glen!

  6. Trevor Blainey says

    Visiting all the sacred sites then Col. Have fun. Hard not to I’d have thought.

  7. roger lowrey says

    You lucky boy Col.

    Without meaning any of his ill intentions, I am reminded of Yosemite Sam’s “bon voyagee rrrrrabbit!!!”

  8. Daryl Schramm says

    That looks and sounds very interesting Col. A lot of names at first glance mean nothing to me. Anything bluegrass is bound to be great, I’m a fan of Keb Mo and the NGDB would be a must on my list. I guess Jimmy Buffett doesn’t do festivals?

  9. Looking forward to your reports, Col. I still entertain plans for a Route 66 trip!

    Appears that you’ll be able to pack light for El Cosmico.
