A couple of summer shows 

We have a few special dates on our calendar this summer. On Tuesday July 18 we will be performing at the Henderson, MN, Classic Car Roll-In from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. See classic vehicles and hear classic old-timey music! On Wednesday August 2 we will be performing for Family Night at the Park (Legion Park) in Le Sueur, MN, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. We're very family-friendly. :) Hope to see you at one or both events!

20-year anniversary for our CD debut 

Can you believe it? This month marks the 20th anniversary of our debut CD, I'll Remember You, Love, in My Prayers. Four originals, four cover songs, and four traditional songs on this modest little project the two of us recorded at our friend Dan Hazlett's HomeStreet Studio. We took the cover photo at Eric's folks' farm outside of Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Sold the first copy the day before we led workshops at the Paint Creek Folklore Society's May Play Day event. Lost a bunch of the CD inserts to water damage when our Minnesota basement flooded in 2014. There's been a lot of water under the bridge--if you'll pardon the expression--since that May day in 2003. And lots of fond memories. We still have some copies--have you gotten yours yet?

Our full KCHK "Live Musician Fridays" podcast 

This morning we enjoyed getting to play about an hour and a half of music live on the radio from the studio of KCHK 95.5 FM/1350 AM in New Prague, Minnesota. You can hear the full show here, without most of the advertising, birthday announcements, giveaways, etc.

Open mic at Henderson RoadHaus 

Tonight we visited a relatively new (since last fall, I believe) open mic at the Henderson RoadHaus, hosted by "Farmer Josh" Reinitz. The RoadHaus has two rooms--a restaurant and a bar--and the open mic is in the bar. After Josh's set of mostly originals featuring deft flatpicking, we were on for a 20-minute set. We haven't had a lot of opportunities to play out lately, so it was a really nice night. Check it out sometime! It's the first Thursday of the month, 7-9:00 PM (or thereabouts), in Henderson, Minnesota.

Upcoming radio appearance--February 17 

We're delighted to be able to make a live appearance on the local radio feature "Live Musician Fridays" on KCHK, 95.5 FM, out of New Prague, Minnesota. Originally a showcase for polka bands, this show has branched out into a variety of acoustic music and has been airing weekly since August of 2012! If you're in the listening area, tune in between 7 and 9:30 AM and catch some tunes with us. If you're out of area, check out the livestream here--just remember we're on Central Time.
