We wrapped up production on our second CD, Little Sparrow, in July, just in time for the Mill Race Festival of Traditional Music at the beginning of August: three days of great music and musicians, and we were thrilled to share the stage with a pile of them, including Sheesham and Lotus and Son, Eileen McGann and David K., and our new best friends from Scotland, Stevie Lawrence and Fiona Cuthill (with whom we sang Songs that Crossed the Sea on a rainy Sunday afternoon).
Just a few days ago, we played in the beautiful church at Westfield Heritage Village (Best Acoustics Ever!) as well as on the village green, where our dulcimers and voices did battle with the breezes and bees - and won. A lovely day.
Our dulcimers are taking a bit of a break, but stay tuned...
In the meantime, enjoy these scenes from our recent musical adventures. (Thanks Russ and Dale for the photos!)
