Happy holidays! Thanks so much to all of you who came to our shows, and to the venues that booked us in 2005.

We were recently featured on the “Florida Folk Festival Jubilee,” a two-hour film aired on PBS. Our Main Stage performance of “Swanee River” was shown right before ARLO GUTHRIE. If you missed it, they might be airing it again on your local PBS station.

We had a blast at BERT’S BAR in Matlacha (near Fort Myers) on November 5th when SAFFIRE: THE UPPITY BLUES WOMEN (who were performing at a nearby blues festival) came to our gig after their show. GAYE, ANN, and ANDRA FAYE each sat in with us for some hot blues. Great to see them again.

We were deeply saddened to hear that MR. DOWNCHILD’S wife MARILYN passed away September 1st. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Cleveland-based bluesman MR. DOWNCHILD (STEVE BRAZIER)- we will sorely miss her.

Hope your holidays are cheerful as 2005 draws to a close. Please check our DATES page for venues and performance dates, and come on out to see us when you can. We’d love to see ya!
