Fall update

I don't know if you noticed, but it's fall! We had a wonderful month filled with lots of outdoor concerts and helped some great folks tie the knot at outdoor weddings with mostly good weather. Now we're headed indoors again for some great regional shows coming up this month.

We have been so grateful for a busy schedule and have had an opportunity to connect with many fantastic people. Some of them keep in touch with us via email -- this recently from the admittedly sterile contact form on our website:  "Just wanted to encourage the band. Heard "Backstep Blues" on NPR's Back Porch Music and then listened on Amazon to snippets from Relics and Roses. Bought the album. I can't stop listening to it. Songs are getting stuck in my head. Very pleasant; love the variety and your sound. I know it ain't easy; but keep it up. You guys are doing wonderful stuff."

The internet familiarizes us in a crazy way so that those of us that can connect through something like music become our own little community. It's kind of a funny way of "being local" and certainly goes a long way towards keeping us going. With this mailing list update I just wanted to be sure you know how much we appreciate you being a part of this. Thank you!

Keeping busy with gigs literally every weekend has helped ease the transition back to the US after a fantastic and musical trip to Japan, and I've been working on an article about the experience, which should be ready soon. In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures:

Lastly, we will be doing some filming this month for a documentary called Southern Songs and Stories, "a documentary series about the music of the South and the artists who make it." The host of the program is Joe Kendrick who is also the program director at the best radio station on the planet, WNCW FM. The segment will be 30 minutes long and focus on the lives and background of Tellico's band members and also feature some live footage from upcoming shows, including a show that will be filmed in front of a live studio audience! (Wanna come?) The previous episode was focused on  the amazing Asheville country band The Honeycutters. More on this soon.
So stop by anytime and say hi at www.tellicoband.com, but the best way for us to keep current with you is to "like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (twitter handle @TellicoBand).

Hope to see you out this fall at one of our upcoming shows!
