EDDIE FROM OHIO'S JUNE 2019 EMAILER
We trust everyone is getting off to a good start for Summer. Alas, there are no EFO bookings this season, but there is plenty of other activity to report for each beloved member. While Julie Murphy Wells hasn't been performing recently (though very busy in the classroom), she has still been getting her FestGirl on with another family outing to DelFest. Above, you see our lovely siren snuggling up to the event host, Del McCoury on his golf cart. Julie & fam rarely miss a DF, and she's come back raving about the amazing talent pouring off the stage (in particular, Billy Strings). Sadly, their favorite headline artist, Sam Bush, had to cancel at the last minute for surgical recuperation. As some of you know, the great Mr. Bush performed on past EFO studio recordings, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
As for the EFO dudes: Eddie drums with SGGL in Richmond, Robbie has a fine string of shows at the Signature Theatre at month's end playing a collection of originals and thoughtful covers celebrating "Folk-Rock in America". Mike is up to all kinds of musical activity in Central VA, while currently looking for interested house concert hosts (a number of shows are already booked for the Fall). Details on all three fellas' gigs are spelled out below.
There are no new EFO shows to report this emailer, but please mark your calendars for next year which is already booked: January 17, 18 & 19, 2020 for our annual return to The Birchmere. Should anything else get booked before then, we will be sure to post it on our website as well as our Facebook Page.
Please read on for more EFO-related news...

EDDIE FROM OHIO’S 1992 LIVE! AT THE BIRCHMERE CASSETTE RE-RELEASED!
Our first recording was a cassette - looong out of print, but it’s NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!
On April 14, 1992, EFO took part in the WAMA Crosstown Jam. Our multi-act showcase was at The Birchmere in Arlandria VA (its legendary 2nd location directly on Mt Vernon Ave, blocks from the current locale). The wonderful house sound engineer, Billy Wolf, honored our request to make a board tape of our set. We couldn't believe the results of his beautiful mix, and decided to make a cassette for sale at our shows - a tape we referred to as "The 6 Pack". We moved a whole bunch of units at 5 bucks each, and it marked the beginning of growing our audience around our original music, and not just our covers. It also marked the beginning of an incredible relationship with Billy, who essentially took us under his wing, mentored us, and worked with us in earnest in the studio (producing 8 albums!) as well as other live projects. BOOya, Billy!
This recording has been out of circulation for some time, but a recent discovery of a fairly clean copy inspired us to make it available again. Hear us in all our infant glory (two acoustic guitars & hand percussion -- as well as Robbie on some killer guirro on track 5).
Go back in time to the days of Robbie's fanny pack, Mike's mullet, Eddie's dashiki, & Julie's midi dress w/combat boots. No pictures, just audio. You'll simply have to "imagine us" while you listen.
