Slow and steady pins and paces all around these camptown races!
Organ, guitar, violin, voice. A microphone, a room, a rehearsal, a preview of our show at Valentine’s on 3/20/13…
I set up and recorded this with so much gratitude in my mind and heart for all the folks who made it out to the benefit show for Rachael Renee’. Each and everyone who donated, be it their time and talent, advice and support, or dollars and cents, is to my mind nothing short of angelic, and I hope my appreciation for you all shines through in every little note. Thanks so much everyone!
