bday gig in an art studio, 15-6-19

Last month, we had the pleasure to play for a fantastic audience in one of the most unique venues imagined: an inspiring art studio, where sculptures and paintings are made.
We wish happy birthday to our friends and hopefully meet soon again.

Just came back from Lithuania and we miss it already.
Thanks to “Griežynė festival” and “Patrida”, we had the opportunity to visit new places, listen to authentic folk music and meet very nice people. Thank you all, it has been a unique experience that we will never forget.
