 ello Everyone!!!

We're back in the saddle again! We have had quite a year. Keturah had surgery on both hands this winter, but she is back and better than ever.

Last summer Carolyn and Keturah were lucky enough to be be among the 300,000 people who gathered on "The Plains of Abraham" to experience Paul McCartney play an historical and healing show for the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, in Quebec, Canada. The show was so amazing that they were inspired to write a song that will be recorded in Canada, featuring Carolyn on bass ,Michael Burke from the Soul Survivors fame on lead guitar and hopefully (if we play our cards right) Cynthia Bane will join them on keyboards.  They are expecting this recording to be especially magical as everyone playing on the record was witness to what happened that night on "The Plains of Abraham."  There are many more surprises to come, check back for updates!!


Will be updating calendar and website as Fall progresses. Check calendar for shows in the Chicagoland area shortly! Hope to see and or hear from you all soon!
