In 2015 I played 90+ shows. In the Midwest, on the west coast, in the south. This is nothing compared to the more seasoned full time musicians, non-stop touring, living in their vans & buses, 300+ shows a year. However for me, doing my own booking and promoting and holding down rent and some yoga teaching in Duluth at the time — it was quite a lot. I have so many great memories (and alas, some not so great!) and especially love the travel aspect and connecting with new and old friends. This country is incredible and huge and its inhabitants vast and varied.
