Thank you for Music Fest

To the Editor:

Just want to say thanks so much to the city of Linton and those that put on the Music Fest every year for having us again this year!

Although we weren't able to play due to the weather, we still had a great time putting on a private show for some of the folks that were willing to drive on out to Green Acres and see us!

Thanks again for the continued support and we're looking forward to returning again next year.
