Back in 2011, while promoting my second album, I was lucky enough to land a slot at Earthwork Farm's annual Harvest Gathering music festival in Northern Michigan. I had few expectations at the time and just a small bit of apprehension about spending a weekend camping in close quarters in a remote field.
It ended up being a personal highlight for me in an already fortunate year. I met some wonderful people, connected with some old friends, heard a ton of great music, ate amazing food, and spent a very carefree 48 hours lounging about on some of the nicest land I can remember. I always vowed I'd find a way back up there and now, with another new album out into the world, I'm finally trekking back up to Lake City, Michigan.
It will also mark the unexpected third date on the 2017 Monger/McIntosh reunion tour which has so far included Dexter, Michigan and New York City. Many thanks to Seth Bernard and the Earthwork team for booking us.
