More Info

We're thrilled to share our first full length album with the world, and the good news is it's already been recorded - but there's still a lot of work (and expenses) to be done before we can release it.

Pre-order now or check out all the perks we're offering!

Unfortunately the expenses of recording, mixing, mastering and printing the CD have added up, and as the pandemic has cancelled all of our gigs, we just don't have the funds to finish this mission on our own, so we're reaching out to ask for support bringing this project into reality. 

We greatly appreciate any and all donations, which will help us cover these costs, and hopefully help us get a bit of professional help with promotion. We all know that no one becomes a musician for the money, but between lost revenue from streaming services and the complete lack of performance opportunities in this new reality, we decided we needed to ask for some help meeting the expenses of bringing this music we care so much about to the people. 

You can simply use this as a chance to preorder the album, in digital or physical form, or make a bigger donation, or check out our exciting other rewards, such as private lessons, a private concert (online, or depending on your location and only once it is safe to do so or in safe conditions, of course), a book of transcriptions of the tunes on the record, or even a fiddle tune or song composed especially for you which you get to name yourself. 

If you want to donate more than an item is listed for you can either select a certain perk and add an independent donation as well, or just make a donation and send us a message with your donation amount and requested 'perk', though the first method would be a little easier for us to track!

About the Album:

Featuring 12 tracks of traditional American old time music from ballads to fiddle tunes, with original album art by Irish artist Andrew Luddick, recorded in London by Chris Clarke and mixed in Berlin by Thomas Shtern, We're really proud of this album and can't wait to share it with you and everyone else, and hopefully reach new fans and take our music to new places once that's possible again.

However much or little you choose to support us, we will be eternally grateful, and if we can cover our costs of production, we promise to use this money do the best we can to promote and spread this album (publicists are SOOOO expensive these days, oy!)  and the traditional American music we care about so deeply. We know that in these difficult times when the most basic things in life seem strange and unrecognizable, it's that much more important to have good tunes to get through the day, and old songs and stories to ground us in a reality that is bigger than ourselves. 

We think this album is one step towards those goals and can't wait for you to hear it!

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, 

Craig Judelman, Joe Buirski and Jack Latimer
