New album "Diamonds and Flowers" off to print! 


It's not our usual August update, with live shows, hoedown fundraisers, and bluegrass festival performances... but we do have big news. We were delayed a bit getting every piece of this new album locked in, but we're happy to announce that it's now off to print! 

93 of you have preordered a signed copy, and we can't thank you enough! With live music on hold, it would not have been possible to do this without your help. We're hoping to get your CDs in the mail by mid-September.
