What a winter, so overcoming a few health obstacles we were able to go back into the studio and record 3 new songs laying basic tracks down getting them prepped for the fluff of fiddles, oboes, banjos and mandolins. we have 4 in the queue waiting to wrap up. I am so grateful to friends who record and play for the love of the game. Thank you all. we will have some local Jersey Shore greats playing.

Great News!

I just heard from one of the Jersey Shore's top Irish Fiddlers, we may be able to finish new song this weekend in the analog studio! I am pumped!
