Ocrafolk Fest & Album Release

Main stage of the Ocrafolk Festival

We had such a great time at this very unique and special festival over the weekend.  We'd love to thank our band sponsors Jill and Bill Gravely for their gracious hospitality and for Gary Mitchell and his band Molasses Creek for inviting us to perform.  From two Saturday sets to the late-night bluegrass jam with our new friends Oak Grove String Band, we had a heckuva time.  Check out part of the bluegrass jam here

As you know, we've been hard at work getting our second album ready to go.  We're proud to show off the album cover here!  We're also happy to announce that the album release show will be at the very beautiful Fletcher Opera Theater that's part of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Durham NC on September 22nd.  You can purchase tickets for the event here.  We'll be joined by our good friends from Asheville, NC Fireside Collective
