We know many of you are stuck at home. So are we! We wish we could play a live show for you
but that just isn't possible right now. So in the meantime we will be posting music from live shows
and cuts of some of our past recordings you may not have heard. Enjoy!

Our first offering is a recording of a live concert in Littleton, MA in October, 2018. This is a
large file, about 110 MBytes. You are welcome to download it (if you have the patience) but it
might be best if you just play it directly. Sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy the concert!

Live In Littleton!

Check back in every so often. We will be posting more music to keep you safe and sane.

Here are some 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
