Real live shows!   

Look at this real live vaccinated bluegrass band!

We haven't dusted off the sound system in a long time... but we had our first official gig in over a year, at a private July 4th party in Snohomish. We sang into microphones, we met and jammed with other musicians, we played "Country Roads" while people sang along. It was familiar and brand new all at the same time.  

We're happy to announce you'll have a few chances coming up to see us live: 

Sun July 18, 11am-2pm: Olympia Farmers Market
Thur July 22…

Review in Bluegrass Unlimited! 

We're proud to announce that Diamonds & Flowers received a review in this month's edition of the venerable Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine!

A sample from reviewer Bill Foster: "This new project is a collection of tunes by band member Menser, and infuses some rock influences into their arrangements ... Menser’s pleasant vocals and the bands tight arrangement make this a most enjoyable project with lots of new songs which others may consider." 

We've always been proud to have our music reviewed by Bluegrass…

"Diamonds & Flowers" is everywhere! 

Hello friends -

You can also order a good old-fashioned CD on our website

It'd mean a lot to us if you'd follow us and…

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.
