They have been enchanting audiences far and wide with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies.

Highlights include; The Ocrafolk festival on Ocracoke Island, NC, June 3-5; Trent River Coffee Co in New Bern, NC, June 10; Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC, June 11; and The Rooster’s wife in Aberdeen, NC, June 12
