Summer 2017! 

Some exciting things are in store for the summer, which started off on a bang with three food festivals: Shreveport's Mudbug Madness, New Orleans' French Market Creole Tomato Festival, and the Pearl River Blues Blueberry Farm Jam on June 17. Kelcy Mae and the band have really enjoyed these fest season opportunities, evidenced by this all-smiles photo from Mudbug Madness:

The fun continues in July, when Kelcy Mae heads to Mexico with good friends and fellow musicians Alex Bosworth, Emily Robertson, and Rebecca Crenshaw. If you are in or around San Miguel de Allende--or if you have friends there--please send them out to Kelcy's first international shows. 

In August, Kelcy returns to the states and heads to Nashville, Tennessee, where she'll begin work on the next record. There'll be plenty more exciting news regarding that endeavor coming up!
