June 2020 - The Times They Are A'Changing 

Hello Friends, 

Such incredible and intense times we are living through.  These last couple of weeks (or so) have been unprecedented and are shifting the consciousness in significant ways. 

It's sometimes hard to know what to say right away, so we've spent a lot of time reading, listening, sighing, meditating, and learning.  The journey towards Unity and healing centuries-old injustices will not be remedied in a day, a week, nor months.  This will be a life-long process that we all take part in. 

We are…

New Video, Tourland and Upcoming shows 

We've uploaded a new video to the website and YouTube!  It's from last July, when we celebrated with my mother, Melanie, for her birthday in Dallas.  It was such a joy to have her on the stage with us, and sing one of our favorites, Long Black Veil (a well-known country ballad from 1959, written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell.)  Check out Melanie's amazing harmonies!  Click here.

Upcoming shows:
Mondays - April 17th and 24th - 8-11pm at Sidney's Saloon - 1200 St…Read more

Video from Music at the Mint series 

We share with you a taste of what will likely become a live album for us from the Music at the Mint series!  What an amazing experience it was to play in this state of the art theater that doubles as a recording studio. 
We've got one (iPhone) video posted from the 3rd show so far...hopefully more to come, as time permits.  The shows were filmed/streamed and recorded, although the Mint's livestream site can be a bit finicky yet functional.  They are in the process of transferring everything to a YouTube…Read more
