What’s New?

Tara McGovern and I, joined by uilleann piper Jon Cooper, have recorded most of the album version of Folk Songs You Never Sang in Grade School. We are planning a CD release for spring, 2017. For a taste of what we've recorded, listen to "Let No Man Steal Your Thyme" and "I Ride an Old Paint" with "Midnight on the Water."
