I first encountered your music at Minton Pawn Shop in North Wilkesboro in 2003, and by the quality of your instrumentation, I knew you were not just another bluegrass band.

I attended the first Carolina in the Fall on the Shephard farm and our radiology practice hired you to play at the staff Christmas party at the Bassment Jazz Club in 2003.

Since that time, I have followed you and your music advidly, and witnessed the blossoming of a truly unique and gifted trio.

This photo was taken candidly at this year’s MusicFest at Sugar Grove, where you are a perennial favorite, while you were sitting for a professional photographer. I am looking forward to a continuing relationship with you and your music, and excited about your expanding repertoire!
