A good week of shows

 Thanks to everyone who came (or told friends to go) to the shows this week. We met many wonderful people and had a blast. Thanks also, to St. Paul and the Broken Bones and Bombadil for introducing us to their lovely and loyal fans.

Our Asheville show is just around the bend


On June 13, 2014 River Whyless will be playing the River Music Festival in Asheville, NC with Treetop Flyers from the UK.

Music is from 5-10. We play roughly around 7pm. It is FREE and there will be plenty of local food and drink to enjoy also.

If you don’t feel like driving then take the trolley from town or take a canoe/raft/canoe/kayak by river! The festival is located at the RiverLink Sculpture and Performance Plaza in the River Arts District.

Red Sox

October in Boston and the Sox are hot

And nearing Fenway the curbstones are bulging

With ticket-holders in matching caps and jackets


And when the walksigns go white

The crowds commence to stretch again

Leaves crunching under them like cornflakes


Block by block a great accordion heave of people

Moving together in red and navy blue

As beautifully as will their exalted ballteam
