Q: How long has your group been together? Sounds like quite a few years. Music is very tight and in touch with each other. Love it all. Great Work! I was raised on this kind of music. Thanks so much.
A: We've been together for just about 12 years; but the recordings you're hearing are 4 or more years old. Thanks so much for the kind words--hope to see you in the audience soon? Cheers! Dave Sligo Rags
