We are excited to announce our first tour since 1990 to support our forthcoming album. The album was recorded at eTown Studios, engineered and mixed by Dave Sinko.  Most of the cuts are new originals, with some traditional and unexpected favorites. We hope you’ll like it.

The tour will start out with a 4 night run through Colorado followed by dates in the Midwest, East Coast and beyond. We’ll even have a few dates with our friends The Del McCoury Band and David Grisman. Check our schedule – we’re adding events all the time!
