March 8: Pacifica Performances News Article
Thanks to Jean Bartlett for this news article in the San Jose Mercury about our show Saturday, March 8 at the Mildred Owen Concert Hall in Pacifica. We’ll be performing as part of the Pacifica Performances concert series. Check it out!
Here’s a little taste:
“We try to keep the creative juices flowing in our band by individually contributing new original songs,” Breen said. “One person might have a cool new instrumental or a pretty singing song that will inspire others in the band to write something new. We are always trying to keep our material fresh and I think that’s what separates us from other bands. There are so many great songs out there, and we like to think that we’re growing that pool all the time with our own songwriting contributions.”

James King + Windy Hill = Valentine’s Day Delight!
Hey friends, we’re gearing up for the most romantic V-Day ever! We’re looking forward to singing some love songs this February 14 with the one and only James King.
Nominated for a Grammy this year for his album Three Chords and the Truth, James King is one of the most soulful bluegrass singers ever. He’s been a part of some of our favorite musical collaborations, most notably with the great Dr. Ralph Stanley.
We couldn’t be more excited about our show with James at the Plough & Stars in San Francisco on Friday, February 14. Bring a valentine, wear your favorite pink shirt and brace yourself for some real soulful music.
See you then!
We had a fine holiday, ate tons of food, gained some wisdom. Now we are ready to start pickin’ again! Our regular Amnesia and Sam’s shows are coming up, and February is full of shows! We’ve been writing tons of new tunes and are even considering an instrumental album. Here’s a little video of us burning down Amnesia last month with special guest Alex Leach of Tennessee on guitar. Alex is one of the best in the business.
