EDDIE FROM OHIO JUNE 2021 EMAILER
HAPPY JUNE -- After nearly a year and half from the stage, we're coming back to life! Thanks to the good folks at The FESTY (Charlottesville VA) for including us in their stellar 2021 music lineup. Over the past decade, The FESTY has evolved from a weekend festival at different locations to a protracted Concert Series. They have secured a beautiful location at Chisholm Vineyards in Earlysville VA near the Cville airport. The tickets for this Saturday, June 12 show are selling fast! Please visit their website for more details, and you can also read about how they are practicing safety measures and social distancing. HOWEVER, as things in Virginia have been opening up, so has the Festy. Our tickets have been moving very briskly for this event with a finite capacity, BUT, it looks like they'll be broadening that capacity a bit in accordance with the Commonwealth's allowances. Read more at http://theFESTY.com
LIVE STREAM TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE, TOO! Again, you can enjoy this show from the comforts of your browzer. Visit here for more info https://www.tixr.com/groups/festy-charlottesville-va/events/festy-charlottesville-eddie-from-ohio-21940
You can see from our Calendar listing that we've got a bunch of shows through the remainder of 2021. From Northern VA in late August to the Midwest in September to Northeast in October, and RVA in December. We may even have some additional bookings to announce. Keep watching the website and our Facebook page.
Our 30th Anniversary Cruise scheduled for this August has been moved to August 2022. Please see the details below.

EDHEAD 30TH ANNIVERSARY CRUISE MOVED TO 2022
Here is the letter that went out to all the Edheads Cruisers from Fan Club Cruises
Hey Edhead Cruisers,
We finally have some certainty on what we’re going to do with the EFO 30th anniversary cruise. While the cruise line continues to explore ways to have some partial Alaska cruise season, it’s increasingly clear that a) our sailing is most at risk since it originates in Vancouver and b) ongoing uncertainty about whether and when to purchase travel arrangements, etc. is simply not tenable.
Therefore, the band and we have decided to move the cruise to August 7-15, 2022. Same ship, same itinerary. And with Celebrity’s “Lift and Shift” policy, we’re pleased to announce that the pricing will remain exactly the same as well.
If you want to keep your reservation, there is literally nothing you need to do. We will work with the cruise line to move your reservation. You will get a new confirmation number and likely a new cabin number. That process may take several weeks, but there’s obviously now plenty of time.
If you selected travel insurance, we will reach out to you in the next couple of weeks as Travel Insured no longer offers the group program we were using. They are announcing some new policies and pricing in just a few days, so we will wait to learn more about that and then contact you individually.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Dana or me. We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this process and hope you are as excited about the opportunity to share an incredible experience with Julie, Mike, Eddie and Robbie (and Bob)…just one year deferred.

EDDIE TO APPEAR AT DYLAN/MITCHELL TRIBUTE FRIDAY JUNE 18 @ STRATHMORE
Presented by Newmyer Flyer, it's the Joni Mitchell & Bob Dylan Album Tributes Show. Our own Eddie Hartness will once again join a fine roster of DC area talent to cover classics from Mitchell's Blue and Dylan's Blood On The Tracks.
An all-star lineup of DC’s finest musicians come together to honor two of the most influential songwriters of the century. If you are a fan of folk or Americana, you’ve likely worn out your copies of Joni Mitchell’s Blue and Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks. They contain the kind of songs you can hear a million times and still crave more; poetic masterpieces like “River,” “Tangled Up in Blue,” “A Case of You,” and “Simple Twist of Fate.” These records are cornerstones of popular music that have etched themselves into our collective conscience. And tonight, you’ll fall in love with them all over again.
This special evening includes performances by Margot MacDonald, Sara Curtin, Maureen Andary, Laura Tsaggaris, Tony Denikos, Kenny Wesley, Paul Bell, Arch Alcantara, Mike Mills, Tom Fridrich, and Ronnie Newmyer.

MICHAEL CLEM'S JUNE & ANOTHER PLUG FOR HIS 2021 EP & HOUSE CONCERTS!
Having written a bunch of tunes over the pandemic slowdown, EFO's Michael Clem has teamed up with friend/producer Rusty Speidel to record five of them for the new EP Rivannarama, released January 12. The feedback thus far has been quite positive with many listeners describing the collection as shots of melancholy with a mirth chaser. Others have felt inspiration through MC's comical tragedies as though watching a birthday party clown fall down a spiral staircase while still landing on his very large feet. It's all the foot-stomping, head-scratching joyous confusion you've come to expect from a Clem release.

ALL THINGS ROBBIE SCHAEFER
Robbie Schaefer's New Podcast
I have a new PODCAST. It's called Walk With Me and what happens is I take walks and you . . . well, you walk with me. Virtually. Figuratively. And I talk and play music since I'm good at both those things.
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.
