EDDIE FROM OHIO'S JANUARY 2019 EMAILER
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EDHEADS
We're starting our 2019 with a vengeance! The end of '18 featured a fine string of EFO Virginia shows in Leesburg and Richmond, but Mother Nature sent her son The Snow Miser to ruin our Charlottesville show on December 9. So, that Jefferson Theater show has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 12 & original tickets purchased will be honored for the new date.
Of course, we will be back at The Birchmere for our usual 3 Night run over MLK Weekend (January 18, 19 & 20). Visit the Birchmere website for tickets http://birchmere.com. Saturday the 19th has already SOLD OUT, but tickets remain for Friday and Sunday. The ever-reliable Jake Armerding will be with us all three nights on fiddle and mandolin, plus he will open our Sunday show. We're excited to have our friends Snuffy Walden & Sara Siemietz open the Friday and Saturday shows. They've wowwed our crowds in the past, and will no doubt wow again.

EDDIE FROM OHIO’S 1992 LIVE! AT THE BIRCHMERE CASSETTE RE-RELEASED!
Our first recording was a cassette - looong out of print, but it’s NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!
On April 14, 1992, EFO took part in the WAMA Crosstown Jam. Our multi-act showcase was at The Birchmere in Arlandria VA (its legendary 2nd location directly on Mt Vernon Ave, blocks from the current locale). The wonderful house sound engineer, Billy Wolf, honored our request to make a board tape of our set. We couldn't believe the results of his beautiful mix, and decided to make a cassette for sale at our shows - a tape we referred to as "The 6 Pack". We moved a whole bunch of units at 5 bucks each, and it marked the beginning of growing our audience around our original music, and not just our covers. It also marked the beginning of an incredible relationship with Billy, who essentially took us under his wing, mentored us, and worked with us in earnest in the studio (producing 8 albums!) as well as other live projects. BOOya, Billy!
This recording has been out of circulation for some time, but a recent discovery of a fairly clean copy inspired us to make it available again. Hear us in all our infant glory (two acoustic guitars & hand percussion -- as well as Robbie on some killer guirro on track 5).
Go back in time to the days of Robbie's fanny pack, Mike's mullet, Eddie's dashiki, & Julie's midi dress w/combat boots. No pictures, just audio. You'll simply have to "imagine us" while you listen.
