We had a great time in Fremont at our first outdoor concert of the season! Perfect weather, fun audience and to top it all off, at the end of our show we were presented with this wonderful drawing by Emmeline, a precious little girl from our audience. Look at all the detail she incorporated! The stage door to the left, the music stand (but you can still see the guitars), the sponsor’s banner and all the stage lights hanging above. She’s quite an artist! Thanks for making that for us Emmeline, and thanks to Fremont and the concert sponsors for inviting us to your beautiful venue!
Remember to check out our website for a schedule of all our upcoming events. You’ll find all our duo’s gigs there as well as events for High Lonesome, our classic country band! We hope to see you all this summer as we tour our beautiful state.
We’re back in beautiful Petoskey, Michigan where the cool breezes blow from across the Little Traverse Bay! Here’s what’s up for this week. We’re kicking off part two of our annual northern tour tonight, August 4th, when we sing at Street Musique in Harbor Springs, Michigan. The event is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and we’ll be playing on Main Street in front of The Outfitter. Come on down (or up, or over!) and see for yourself why we love Harbor Springs!
Next, on the following Friday evening from 6 to 9pm, we’re playing in the beautiful lakeside downtown of Boyne City, Michigan! Lots of great restaurants and shops. You won’t want to miss Stroll The Streets this weekend!
And finally, on Saturday morning, August 6th, from 10:00 to noon, we’ll be performing at the Harbor Springs Farmers Market for their Musique At The Market event! This is one of the area’s premier farmers markets and has been a favorite venue of ours for many years. It’s always fun to visit with the friendly and knowledgeable folks at the Harbor Springs Farmers Market!
So there’s this week’s schedule. We’ve got some fun venues for you to check out. Hope to see you there! –Wyatt & Shari
We’re playing and singing in our own backyard! The Saugatuck-Douglas area boasts beautiful lakes, woods and quaint old cottages, as well as board walks, shops, antiques, retro collectibles, an original old soda fountain and even a Victorian hand-cranked ferry! Through it all winds the Kalamazoo River, slowly making its way to beautiful Lake Michigan and the beach. And Saugatuck is where Shari and I make our home in the winter and early spring! We’ve always enjoyed the art and architecture of these two little harbor towns. The area holds a special charm. It’s also home to the renowned Saugatuck Brewing Company. Now’s a great time to make plans to visit the area and when you do, why don’t you include a stop by the brewery on Thursday, June 2nd and enjoy an evening of music on the patio. We’ll start singing at 6:00 pm and keep going until 9:00. Great atmosphere, delicious food, famous crafted beers, ciders and wines, and splendid tunes for your listening pleasure! Fun! Hope to see you there! –Wyatt & Shari
Save the date!! We had so much fun last time, we’re doing it again! Sunday, January 17, from 3 PM – 4 PM. Music by the fireplace… what better way to spend a January Sunday afternoon! Spring Lake Library, 123 E. Exchange Street, Spring Lake, MI 49456
We’re back in West Michigan after an awesome summer playing music in Michigan’s North Country. This Thursday evening, we’ll be rockin’ our tunes at the fabulous Rockford Brewing Co. in Rockford, Michigan! Rockford Brewing Co. is a friendly venue and a favorite of ours. Not only do they offer a full catalog of amazing, traditional and inventive beers, they’ve teamed up with locally famous Vitale’s to offer delicious pizza, grinders, salads, and appetizers in-house. Here’s what you do: Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 8th, 8-11 PM. Then come and enjoy an icy cold craft beer, delicious hard cider or a soft drink along with tasty Vitale’s menu items while listening to the music of Wyatt & Shari Knapp! Sounds like a perfect evening! -Wyatt & Shari
We’re in the thick of winter! Lots of cancellations due to the weather. Out of seven things on our calendar between New Years Day and today, only one has actually happened! That was an afternoon at the mall, drinking coffee and shopping with my sister & niece.
Wyatt and I are hoping our gig for tomorrow doesn’t get cancelled because of impending weather. We enjoy being home, but we’re ready to get out again. At least I am.
I am so glad the snow we’ve gotten has been fluffy, making the shoveling easier! Wyatt does such a good job keeping the long path to the barn clear, but the other day I got out there first because I wanted the exercise. I had to blaze a new trail. I had so much fun. I think it looks way more interesting with some curves, don’t you? 😉 Between my glasses steaming up and hair blowing in front of my eyes–I couldn’t see much of anything!
I am thankful to have a toasty warm, cozy place to stay again this winter. Most of all, I’m thrilled with the one I am hunkered down with on these cold, snowy, Michigan winter days and nights! We cooked and enjoyed a spontaneous candlelight Italian meal together last night because the plans to go out for a quiet dinner with friends were not to be.
Lots of love and laughter, and never a dull moment! -Shari
