Due to covid-19, our musical lives are looking much different these days. Many of our bookings have been cancelled and others are up in the air. We'll try to keep this schedule as up-to-date as we can. We really enjoy sharing music, and are very much missing that part of our lives, but we're using this opportunity to relearn songs we've done in the past, learn songs new to us and feeding our spirits by sharing music with each other. Bill is also building and repairing guitars. We're trying to stay safe and make the best of these unprecidented times! Hope you are staying safe too!
