The Canterbury Tales played extensively throughout the Northwest due to the success of our record on the Merrilin label called Rainy Day.  It was a regional radio hit that kept us working the teen (in Idaho, the bar) dance circuit for two years.  Besides headlining shows in Western and Eastern Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia, the 'Tales opened and toured with such acts as Buffalo Springfield, Tommy James and the Shondells, Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape and Sonny and Cher.
