RIBA (Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance) inducted Jim and Sharon into the RIBA Bluegrass Hall of Fame this April.
This is quite an honor, and a tremendous way to kick off the band's 41st anniversary!

Here are some brand new YouTube videos from our recent Cable TV appearance on "502 Sessions"
in Dedham, MA. 502 Sessions features bands playing their own original material. These are all
originals (except for "Children Go Where I Send Thee", which is a traditional song with our own arrangement).
Carolina Lightning
Do You Know
Just a Little Man
Tractor Pull
I didn't ask
Field Of Glory
Last Leg Home
Voices In the Wind
My Old Friends
Walk Your Way To Heaven
Chidren Go Where I Send Thee
