Circles Around the Sun: New Year’s Run, Busy January, Festivals on Horizon
It was 2:30 in the morning. Music had been pumping out of five different stages for the past 13 hours, and many at Suwannee Hulaween were debating about one more set of music about to pour off the Spirit Lake stage and onto the festival grounds.
The instant Circles Around the Sun began, there was no longer any debate, just a massive amount of wonderful vibes flowing in and around us all. At the time, we noted:
We had several years of The Jon Stickley Trio and The Grass is Dead playing the Friday and Saturday late-night slots (2:30 to 4:00). This year, Circles Around the Sun were invited to handle Friday night. This was pure magic: Spirit Lake was packed, the visuals were happening across the lake, and Circles poured out 90 minutes of the exact vibes at least many of us were looking for. Thank you, John Lee Shannon, Dan Horne, Adam MacDougall, and Mark Levy for the instrumental space disco jam rock!
Circles Around the Sun begin their New Year’s run in Roanoke December 29, then playing Winston-Salem before closing out 2022 with The Infamous Stringdusters in Richmond at The National.
The quartet have a tight eight-show tour at the end of January in the Northeast, and festival invitations already find them at Skull & Roses Festival in April, FloydFest in July, and Hoxeyville Music Festival in August. More to come!
