Robin and Linda Williams: June News 2012
Dear Friends,
The weather is perfect for an outdoor show. We're on a break from rehearsing for this evening's A Prairie Home Companion in Cary, NC. The Koka Booth Amphitheater is a wonderful venue and the staff here is, to a person, fun andfriendly. It's that North Carolina style we suppose and it is engaging.

The rehearsals are going well. What is great about today's show is that we know and are friends with not only the APHC staff, actors and band but also so many of the other performers. There's Big Medicine, a tight old time string band with great vocals and energetic instrumentals that all come from a very deep well. Adam Granger, whom we've known from the early days of APHC in the Twin Cities, and Anni Spring have some really strong guitar and fiddle numbers. And Heather Masse and Aoife O'Donovan, two young, strong vocalists who have some unique and fresh songs that will be highlights of the show, we're sure. And Garrison has written some really funny scripts. He's amazing. It's going to be an outstanding broadcast.

As we write this we can't help but have Doc Watson on our minds. His recent death has saddened us greatly. He has meant so much to us over the years and he helped define the direction of our music. We're keeping him in mind during this show and will think of him tomorrow as family and friends gather for his funeral in Deep Gap,NC. We'll miss him but luckily we all still have his music.

Better go. Albert Webster or Tom Campbell could show up any moment and tell us that we're wanted on stage. Bumper Sticker of the Month: Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

Hope you're all doing well. Come out and see us if we come anywhere close to you.

Your pals,
Robin and Linda
