This site is intended for audiences with a refined musical taste. We are not all old-fogies, but our days of getting drunk and dancing on the bar are over. I am sure you have noticed that much American Roots music is based upon suffering? And I'm not talking hang-over here, but honest pain from heart-ache, job-loss, bereavement, betrayal, enslavement and other human conditions of life. This is the stuff our music is made from... and the laughs and good-times necessary to balance the bad in order for us to keep a tenuous hold on sanity.

Thanks for visiting; yall come back, ya' hear?
