Albert and Gage e-Newsletter January 2010
please visit our website albertandgage.com
 

Greetings from the MoonHouse in lovely south Austin, Texas.  The old year passes and the new year grabs a hold of you.  We spent our 10th annual New Year's Eve at Paul Barker's House Concert in the hills of West Austin.  It was emotional, fun, sad, funny, hip, square, quiet and raucous all at the same time.  We hope you rang in 2010 in your own way and enjoyed it as much as we did.  Remember when 2001 was a futuristic space odyssey?  2010 was the sequel to that book (the year we make contact), and now here it is!  Hang on to your hats. 

Thanks for another great year of music and friendship.  This month's newsletter is a bit brief because our hands are full preparing to leave for Belize tomorrow for a week of making music with Jerry Jeff Walker (read more here) and just hanging out.  I know, a thankless job. 

Happy New Year to all. 
Chris and Christine

A note from Christine:
    
We've been in a whirlwind with the holidays and trips to Florida and Las Vegas this past month.  My bags still need some more light packing (I'm trying) and there are last minute bills to pay and emails to send, so I'll keep it short. 
     I'm looking forward to the island breeze, naps, books, fish and songs.  Not necessarily in that order.
     Wishing you all a contented New Year. 
     Love, Christine
  And a blurb from Chris:
     Happy New Year to you and yours.  We're excited to be leaving tomorrow on our trip to Belize with Jerry Jeff.  I promise to take lots of photos and put up a new photo tour for next month's newsletter. 
     You can always take the tours that are still posted at albertandgage.com/tourphotos. You'll get a taste of Scotland, England, Germany, Holland and Switzerland.  And have you seen the Christmas video of my boys that took 8 years to make? 
     See you at the gig.
     Chris
