and we're no different.
The fact of the matter is: Bittersweet Highway needs a new vehicle!
Our “Bittersweet Highway-mobile” has served us well for 4 years. It has over 230,000 miles, a repaired transmission, replaced tires, fuel pump and alternator, inoperable door locks, and many cracks in the windshield.
We hope it has some travels left to complete yet, but the reality is this:
We have the opportunity to do much more touring in 2018 – but in order to do that – (and even to keep doing what we do now) – we will need different transportation. And, we don’t quite know how to accomplish that without some help.
We are looking for a small RV or conversion van.
Something that will not only hold our equipment, but that we can sleep in, stand in – something with the ability to travel with our own food – and a bathroom would be a welcome option as well. It doesn’t have to be “pretty” or extravagant – but reliable is a must. All things in place – we could be on the road for several weeks at a time and a comfortable “home on wheels” for us and for our dog Naia would allow that to happen.
This call for assistance can look like a lot of things:
contributions, connections, ideas that may not have occurred to us. Do you have or know someone who has a small RV or conversion van that is not being used? Do you have connections to someone who sells them? Did you see something in the paper? Do you know someone who knows someone who knows someone? Do you have the ability to help us financially and keep our music heading out into the world to touch others? Please take a moment to consider.
There are so many “needs” in the world – always – but especially right now, it seems. And yet, when we think this request is “too much” or not important, we are offered another music opportunity or invitation. We are encouraged by words such as: – “what you do is needed” – “music keeps us human” - “please keep doing what you do”.
So – here we are.
We may, at some point, set up a GoFundMe page – but this doesn’t have to look like “funding” only.
Right now – will you please take a minute to help us brainstorm?
We so love sharing what we do with you – and with others.
Sincere thanks from our hearts to yours.

But "support" can look like many things.
You can certainly purchase our music, but sharing it with others can be a big "tip" for us.
Ideas for sources of reviews/features/articles, radio stations, shows and house concerts, festivals. . .
These leads also help us keep doing and sharing what we do.
An encouraging word now and again can go a long way.
"Tips" large and small - all count in a big way.
Our thanks for listening
and for supporting and encouraging our journey -
no matter what form that support comes in!
