News from the musical world of Christine Albert and Chris Gage
MAY 2015

Hey and howdy, friends and neighbors, salutations from the MoonHouse in beautiful Austin, Texas where spring has sprung, the pear tree has budded out, we have little baby pomegranates to watch and the giant agave out front is shooting up at a rate of a foot a day!

This month will find Christine flying back and forth to LA for Grammy meetings, Chris dancing in and out of the studio to play mostly local shows, and Christine appearing with Strings Attached as a solo artist.  Fun stuff.  Central Market, Donn's Depot, Strange Brew...all our local haunts are on the calendar.

We were just in South Dakota...my old band Red Willow Band was inducted into the South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  It was a fun event featuring a lot of the bands that we were cavorting with in the 70's.  And...it reminded me of a photo essay I'd found online at the Denver Post of old Deadwood Territory.  "Between 1887 and 1892, John C.H. Grabill sent 188 photographs to the Library of Congress for copyright protection. Grabill is known as a western photographer, documenting many aspects of frontier life — hunting, mining, western town landscapes and white settlers’ relationships with Native Americans. Most of his work is centered on Deadwood in the late 1880s and 1890s. He is most often cited for his photographs in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation."  I've include my favorites of these photos in this newsletter.

Happy Anniversary to us!  We were married on May 10, 2003.

Thanks for the support!
Chris and Christine
