It has been my dream since 2007, when I first started obsessing about turn-of-the-century novelty wax cylinders, to one day perform live into a giant horn like this one, and demonstrate the antiquated methods of acoustic recording. Thanks to Roochie Toochie, Martin Fisher, The Chipstone Foundation, and the Milwaukee Art Museum for making it happen! @johoisaphane @yesiammattbell @aaronjonahlewis #lindsaymccawfan4life

I woke up like this in Viroqua, Wisconsin, but tonight Roochie Toochie will be performing at the Charles Allis Museum in Milwaukee! 7pm!

So happy to be able to play this year at @oldtonemusicfest with my all-star dream band, Roochie Toochie & The Ragtime Shepherd Kings! Look at this line up! @foghornstringband @revelersband and the list goes on. I'm excited to see every single act and also to make a giant sphinx! You'll have to go to know what that means!!! #atailoftwosphinxes #oldtone #roochie #toochie #ragtime #kings #tamarismyfavoritesinger #startspreadingthenews

As far as I know there's no such thing as a ukulele / banjolele / desk bell / bicycle horn case, so I made one! Home for 3 weeks, then off to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ireland, New York, Maine and Vermont!

Since I'll be in Spain for a few days I'm teaching myself the fundamentals. Here's a sample from my conversational Spanish training video:

No matter how conflicted we feel about our country, everyone can always agree on John Phillip Sousa! Happy 4th!
