'I think they’ve written 50+ new songs in the time I’ve known them and they have enough breadth of skill and sound to handle a variety of audiences.  I foresee them continuing on this path, as the size and number of their gigs keeps snowballing.

The breadth of songs, their musical sensibilities and their abilities to self-promote are why booking them for the SF Free Folk Festival was a Success'
