Album update, February 21 2013 - We have 12 songs recorded, and have had some great sessions at McGill's MMR and StudioA and Pollack Hall with Duncan and Brandon recording guitar, violin, vocals, cello, french horn, drums, electric bass, piano... This weekend we will be in the cozy country Hutchins studio in Vermont with The Bombadils !! They bring with them their amazing talents on mandolin, fiddle, bass, guitar, banjo, and vocals (flute to be recorded later;)... So after this musical weekend, the album should be 90%+ done!!
