NCB Summer 2019 Update

North Country Blue had an amazing summer! We kicked it off at one of our favorite festivals, the Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley. We had a ton of fun working at the Youth Academy there, teaching bluegrass to a younger generation of kids. On Vern’s Stage, we made a big announcement: we had recently added two members to the band! John Gooding on guitar and Christine Wilhoyte on banjo have been playing with us for a while now, and we’re so happy that they’re with us full-time. Christine’s actually in her last year of college so there goes the whole “they’re all just in high school” thing. 

We took some time off in June and July to have our own fun summer adventures before reuniting at RockyGrass in Colorado. We entered the band competition (where we competed against Ida’s dad’s band, Red Dog Ash) with Tessa’s brother Max on guitar and came away as finalists, finishing in third place among some really great bands. We had a great weekend of listening to fantastic bands and getting some good practice time in. The experience was so incredible for us and we were so glad we got the opportunity to fly out and play at this beautiful festival. 

The year isn’t over yet! We’ll be playing at the Plumas County Americana Festival over Labor Day Weekend, then flying to Raleigh in late September for the IBMA World of Bluegrass festival. Ida, Tessa, and Megan will all be in the Kids on Bluegrass program, and we’ll be playing some showcases there as well. In addition, we’re hard at work booking gigs for 2020. We’ll be playing at the Lost River bluegrass festival in Merrill, Oregon next July, and we are working on booking our first Pacific Northwest tour, which we are super excited about! 

Hope to see some of you at our gigs in 2019, 2020 and beyond. Until later!
