Every June since 2006, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin has seen a collection of over 50 songwriters and instrumentalists gather at the Holiday Music Motel for a week of writing, recording, creativity, and madness. These artists come from across North America and in some years, across the world to participate in this festival of original music and community building. We have had the pleasure of performing for this community since Sugar Still began in early 2015, but this last week was the first time we experienced the Construction Zone (the writing/recording portion) as a performing duo.
The tour begins in three days. I’m out of my apartment, I’ve been living out of my two bags for about two weeks, and my Chicago life has been stored away in two bins and a suitcase. Charlie’s packed our stuff away in Madison, and is currently up there hanging with his father before Daddy Cheney has heart surgery. My grandma had heart surgery a couple weeks ago, and sends good vibes and strong pulses. This sudden reminder of mortality and anatomy has had us thinking a lot about intimacy and heart healthy diets.
WE HEART YOU. STAY ALIVE SO WE CAN LOVE YOU MORE:
