I first heard this awesome group at NERFA a few months ago. I was stunned at how brilliant their harmonies are and their range of repertoire. Then I met them and found them to be great people as well. We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with them.
Check out this montage.
Big congrats to James, Joe and JC for the recognition of “The Femme Fatale of Maine” being awesome. We knew if from the first listen…
One of my favorite performers ever. Yves rocks the house, check out his solo on slide whistle at about an hour and five minutes. Enjoy, and sorry if you lose some of your day on youtube.
Congratulations ladies! Well done. Very gracious of you to not sweep all the awards 🙂
Kudos to the players and knob turners who helped out on this record, including: Dave Gunning; Alex Meade, Andrew Sneddon and Kris MacFarlene.
