Happy Thanksgiving! Now, Dance.

It's the day before Thanksgiving and the trees are white with snow. There's something utterly magic about it, like a charm to make the world get quiet and settle down. We're house sitting in Vermont still, helping to run an air bnb upstairs, and people are coming and going very quickly. And we are too! I can't believe it's already nearing the end of November and that it's almost time for us to chip the snow off the camper roof and get on down to Florida where campers belong. But we're trying not to get too ahead of ourselves on account of that magic charm, because there's so much to be thankful for in the here and right now. Like Scott's brother, Jess, who came out to spend the holiday with us. We've prepared a delicious vegan, gluten-free meal and are showing him what it's like to hike in the snow and drink Vermont Cider. Today we're going to head up to Montpelier and maybe do some Bernie watching.

We're thankful for a lot of things this year- mostly the ability to continue doing what we're doing and take our music to listening ears across the country. We're thankful that people are still coming out to our shows and listening to our music, and especially that they are still tuning in to Double Americana, even when we've given them reasons not to. This month in particular, we're thankful that we've got a warm house to stay in for this cold month in Vermont, a month that has found the sky just dumping snow onto the earth for us to shovel or ball up into tiny snowballs to throw at Pud, who we're very thankful for. We're thankful for our extended family, our friends, and for each other. We're very lucky, the two of us and our little dog, to have found ourselves in a career that runs off love and that requires us to spend all of our time together. We really like it.

Today on Double Americana we're doing a favorite song with a friend. You might recognize it if you're a fan of long winding mazes that are seemingly impossible to get out of, puppets or David Bowie. Join us today on Double Americana for a little magic, won't you?
