Circa Paleo Update April 2017

This is a letter to all the CP fans with some bits of news about my adventuring bandmates. 

Dearest Amigos,

We hope the first few months of 2017 have been treating you right and that wherever you are in the world the sun is shining. Either that or you are wrapped in a nice warm sweater with a cup of tea in hand.

Circa Paleo does not have any shows booked on the road together this year, but our members are out and about up to all kinds of exciting things.

We are all still intimately connected and in touch.

For example, just the other night James and Joshua created a group text thread and sent Kelly and me close-up photos of these huge piles of nachos they were enjoying at our band’s ol’ fave margarita spot in Texas.

I’ll start with James, since he has the most impressive news update by far. He rescued this pelican from the Great Salt Lake:

He has also joined up a wonderful band called Duende! You can catch them for the final weekend of Sherwood Forest Faire, THIS weekend, April 22, 23.

After that they’ll be headed West to Southern Cali Ren faire. This band features Amanda Kitchens and….. your very own…

Jake Cooper!

I’m afraid I have to share a bit of news about Jake that may be disappointing to some…

Yes, he is officially taken. He and Kendra tied the knot. Here’s a pic of the adorable couple on their wedding day December 23:

Joshua will be out at Sherwood this weekend as well! He is performing with Saxon Moon. They have been up to some cool gigs such as the Dallas Museum of Art.

Throughout the Spring festival season Joshua has often been found performing as a small seal:

Before that, Joshua was out for a Winter tour with David Arkenstone – I heard several of you guys made it out to share the moment!

As you guys know… the CP group and fans are a family, and it always makes me happy when I see pics of any of you together.

Speaking of band family, our beloved Mandi is doing great. She’s been busy being a baddass as usual:

Mandi is of course missing Jay the very most out of all of us, but at least she still has a somewhat Scottish looking dude nearby to swing nunchucks at:

Kelly has been writing a bunch of new original songs, and is this close to mastering her middle splits:

Easter Sunday, she and I hopped on FaceBook Live to play an impromptu holiday jig. We were so surprised how many of you were there to send hearts and thumbs-up floating across the screen!

We had fun and will definitely do this again since you made it feel like a crowd dancing out there:

Feel free to leave a comment to say hi from your part of the world, and I'll pass it along to all the traveling CPeeps.

  1. Thus all news are good news. We still miss you however, Jenny. May you consider launching a crowdfunding project to reprint some of your out-of-print CDs ? Even if I own all your digital releases I’d really love to have physical copies of “Roseland”, “Tideland” and “Live from the Mucky Duck”. I desperatly miss booklets with beautiful pictures and background story telling… Plus, needless to say that I DO really want to support YOU instead of these few greedy resellers that sell these very rare items at so indecent prices…

    Thanks Jenny :

    Kind regards and friendship from France :). Nico.

    • That’s an interesting idea Nico. Thanks for appreciating the physical copies. 🙂 So rare these days with everyone on to digital!

  2. never forget seeing you guys as cp, my favorite faire band. I doubt you would remember me but you might remember the costume. Saracen helmet with tall white ostrich plumes and rust colored cape. Robert p.s. saw you several times in irwindale and once in Muskogee.

  3. Jennifer our you going to have any shows in 2018 I would love to come to one of your shows you are my favorite violinist. I watch you on YouTube every day. Thanks for making my days brighter.
