Last night in Tønder I did the last set of my summer tour of Europe. Had a great time with he Tønderhalle packed with friends. I really love this festival and plan to keep coming back. The entire time over here has been really wonderfully crazy going from 25,000 people one night in Germany to a couple of hundred in Ireland almost the next day. My grandson, Mo (Annie's son) joined me in Dublin and has been a huge help lugging things around and getting to see what it's like on the other side of the pond. Mo went thru Ireland, Scotland, England and Denmark checking it all out.

Now we're getting ready to close the Tønder Festival onstage this evening with any of the artists still around and still able to walk. They do love their beer. Tomorrow we head to Frankfurt, Germany for an overnight stay before catching the flight back to Massachusetts the following day. We'll arrive in Boston the last day of August 2010. I'll get about two days to unpack throw it all in the washer, fold it back up and head to the Left Coast for The Strawberry Festival in Yosemite. Then it's off to Colorado Springs, CO for the actual last gig of the summer. It'll be really awesome to get some real downtime back at The Farm - a few weeks at least before we start putting the "Journey On" together with the band and The Burns Sisters. That's a tour I've been looking forward to since we ended the "Lost World Tour" in May 2009 in Durham, NC at The Carolina Theater. For anyone who missed any of those shows, now's the time to plan on catching it if we're nearby. See you somewhere!

Some of us did. Most I hope.

Great shot, Arlo. I hope you swing down somewhere near us on the next tour. It would be great to get the family out to see you and the ladies. :)

It is good to hear that you had a great time and that you plan to come back.
Your grandson is a handsome young man, it looks like he is pretty tall.

Glad you had a great time in Europe.
Tonder was fantastic , so many great musicians, a wonderful ambience onstage, in the audience…. and in the streets.
I really enjoyed the show on Saturday night in Tonderhal (great songs and stories)

Nice picture of you and Mo!
