5/11/2017 - Springfield, Kansas City and... France!

Back from a beautiful round of music-making through the U.P., the Bros couldn't be more grateful for all the lovely people we met and places we saw. It's a truly magical land up there and no doubt, we'll be returning when the fates allow. We also played a small fest in El Dorado, AR celebrating the Mayhaw berry and on the way back home, we made a pit stop in Springfield to play Hotel Vandivort with our dear friend and fellow musician Patrick Mureithi. Although it seems like we can't sit still, we did manage to plant some tomatoes and herbs that the recent sunshine has sent into overdrive. Spring is really cooking now!

Speaking of cooking, we have a couple stateside gigs heating up... as well as plans to jump the pond! Shapiro Brothers are excited to announce we'll be spending the month of July traveling across France with the wonderful Parisienne songwriter Louise Thiolon. Not only is Louise a font of wit and wonder, she just released her first EP and it's receiving critical acclaim in Paris and beyond. We are so proud of her and can't wait to spend some time making music with her.

Before the big leap though, we are honored to play a house concert series call the Shoe Tree Listening Room on Sunday, May 21st in Springfield, MO. For our next KC gig, you'll find us at Californo's with local banjo maven Teri Quinn and the touring folk pop Band of Lovers on June 1st. Meanwhile, Mikal is gearing up for her next solo recording and film projects and Chad has a number of gigs with his acoustic trio Old Sound and rock band Supermassive Black Holes.
