This past Monday, TNB travelled to wild, wonderful West Virginia. West Liberty University is nestled in the picturesque green hills of the state’s Northern Panhandle, about an hour southwest of Pittsburgh. With guest trumpeter Brendan Cassin, we performed a recital featuring music from all of our CDs — well, except the Christmas CD, it’s a little early for that! We had a great time meeting the faculty and students in the music school at WLU, and really enjoyed our brief stay in West Virginia. Of course, when we travel, we always make a point of seeking out the best traditional local cuisine, which of course led us to coffee and doughnuts at that venerable West Virginia institution, Tim Hortons… (click on the photo for a closer look.)
