EDDIE FROM OHIO SEPTEMBER 2020 EMAILER
Happy September, Edheads
Did we even have a Summer? We certainly had the heat. The not-so-surprising news from the EFO front is that all of our bookings for the month of September in the Midwest, while not cancelled, have been moved to the same weekend in 2021 - just like our Tin Pan show December weekend. Please mark your calendars accordingly.
However, we're still a GO (until we hear otherwise) for our cruise next August, celebrating our 30th Anniversary!

Here's some other EFO related news...
EDDIE FROM OHIO WOLF TRAP VIDEO
Our August got off to a great start, as our friends at Wolf Trap released a live performance of your folk foursome for their "Park Pop-Ups" series. The video is still up for your viewing pleasure:
REST IN PEACE, DAN APPENZELLER
EFO had no greater friends of our music in the Mountain State of Colorado than Dan Appenzeller and his lovely wife, Crista Munro. Together, they brought the Four Corners Folk Festival to Pagosa Springs CO in 1996. By their third fest in '99, they graciously brought us into their Labor Day Weekend event, and the LoveFest was immediate. We not only bonded with the festivarians but with the great citizenry of Pagosa.... these people were exceptional (too many great stories to recount). From that year on, they had us back 10 times, and the joy never ceased. Dan & Crista & all their friends were family to us - at least we felt adopted. For most of that time though, Dan had been in the throes of a fierce battle with cancer - he a was even in remission for 15 years. Sadly, the lengthy fight came to an end on August 21, when Dan passed away at his home in Sisters OR. He was 64.
How fitting as we embrace for yet another Labor Day weekend, which for Eddie from Ohio, always belongs to a beautiful tented hilltop in southern Colorado. We love you, Dan (& Crista)!
To read more about Dan's remarkable life and incredible festival story, please read this wonderful appreciation piece in The Durango Telegraph, aptly celebrating the "father of folk"

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.
EFO 3 SONG SET CAPTURED ON VIDEO IN NYC
While we were at the ever-hospitable City Winery in New York City, we partook in one of their fine offerings: an intimate live video, professionally shot and edited called “Cellar Sessions, One on One”.
