A New Chapter

A new chapter for us...

At the first of the year, we began slowing things down so that we could have more time to write new material and concentrate on what we want musically. As we began considering all the possiblities for a new album, John and I couldn't deny that it was time for a big (and maybe a little scary...) step forward.

It's a bittersweet decision to move from Asheville, though we are very hopeful and excited to see what this next chapter will bring our way.

We are going to relocate to John’s hometown outside of Lexington to take advantage of well-earned downtime to stretch and challenge ourselves musically. We plan on doing something a little different for this next recording!

As you know, we have been traveling far & wide over the past few years promoting our Flood Waters album, from which we have learned and grown both personally and professionally -- I’m not so sure it would have worked as well for us anywhere else, except for Asheville. We are excited about the possibilities and know that the musical traditions of Western North Carolina we've absorbed in the past four years directly compliment Kentucky's own musical heritage, where they say everyone is issued a mandolin at birth...

We cannot say enough about the quality and character of the musicians and industry professionals in Western North Carolina. We became students of the rich regional culture and have loved promoting the state as we travel all over the world playing our music. We consider you family and we will miss everyone so much, though you will continue to see us often! 

So, thank you: thank you for your support, the opportunity to learn from you, and the friendship we will continue to carry with us. We'll be back often until the end of the year and beyond. 

Please continue to check back with us as we add shows in the area and have more news on our upcoming album. 

Look forward to seeing you!
