The Heartaches Stringband

Acoustic Honkytonk from Southwestern Ontario

That’s a Wrap, Home County – Now Summer Holidays!

Well, we are officially blown away!. From start to finish, each Heartache had a special and exciting experience at Home County Music and Art Festival.  We are also officially pooped after many months of going pretty hard.  We’re looking to take August off, and plan to back in fine form in September! Stay tuned for a special show at Western Fair on September 8th.

And be prepared for a back-to-school bash, at our last-Friday of the month show at the St. Regis Tavern, on September 29th, with our friends Myrtle Earle! We’ll share more pictures in the days to come when our webmistress has recovered a little energy.  For now, we’ll leave you with a few pictures:

Home County – Last time to see us until September!


Well friends, the Home County Music and Art Festival is upon us! Both Uncle Dan’s River Valley Stringband, and Amanda Lynn Stubley are booked to play Home County this year.  James Cummins is playing with River Valley, and Martin Horak will be joining Amanda Lynn. So while we’re not booked by name, all the Heartaches will be at the festival.

You can find the complete schedule for the weekend here.  On Sunday at 4:30pm, River Valley, Amanda Lynn and local blues piano phenom Chuckee Zehr are all playing a workshop called “Country, Bluegrass and Blues,” named after the famous NYC punk club of the 1980s.  You can expect some Heartaches magic!

We’d love to see you at beautiful Victoria Park, on Richmond Row in downtown London. It’s the last time we’ll be playing until early September when we’ll be playing at Western Fair! Stay tuned for more details on that.
