A Wanderer I'll Stay
Banjo Shop Fire
On June 5th we had a catastrophic fire in our banjo workshop, also burning all of our records and CDs. Digital downloads are still available through Bandcamp and CD Baby, and a limited number of physical copies are available through Borealis Records, various online retailers, and CD Baby. Thanks so much for all the support.

A Break in 2016
With the exception of a few shows at the start of the year, we'll be taking a break from touring in 2016. A new baby, building a house, and catching up on banjos all seemed to point in that direction. We're looking forward to being back on the road in 2017!
No shows scheduled for 2016.
We'll be back on the road in 2017. Stay tuned!
