We’re thrilled to announce the release of our new album, In That Black Sky, featuring 13 original songs and all the picking, plucking, bowing and singing you could want. Beginning July 1, you can buy it from us at our store. Shortly after that, it'll be available on iTunes and everywhere else digital music is sold. (If you order from us, you buy an actual, physical CD, which is nice, because, thanks to our banjo-player’s design capabilities, this is a fine-looking CD.)
To celebrate, we’ll be playing with our friends Big Slyde, who are releasing their own album this week, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts in Lake Placid, NY this Saturday night. And on July 5, we’ll return to Brooklyn to play a gig at Matchless, in Greenpoint.

Folk Alley, a terrific web-based radio station/site, has selected us as its Open Mic artist of the month, which is a real kick. Please visit their site and click on our songs.
