On our New England tour this summer, we took a swing to the north to play the Haskell Free Library and Opera House, which sits on the US-Canada border at Derby Line, Vermont, and Stanstead, Quebec. What a charming venue! The international border runs right down the middle of it…but we were able to get by without passports, because the historic building is legally considered an island.
On July 9 we played a fun outdoor show on Dog Mountain in St. Johnsbury, VT. This bandstand is set on a mountaintop that’s privately owned, but always open to people and dogs. The most touching spot in the place was the dog chapel, papered with notes from people to their beloved old dogs. It must be true that all dogs go to heaven.
