Seven Songs of Comfort and Joy

We have re-released our favorite holiday CD, "Seven Songs of Comfort and Joy." Our super melancholy minor-key version of 'Silent Night' is on there, as well as 'Up On The Housetop', 'We Three Kings', and others. The music is all instrumental. It's just the thing for spinning during holiday games of cribbage, hearts, whist, pinochle or puzzle making. There is a super groovy animated cartoon on the disc also. Grab a copy here.

November shows

Soon we will visit two of our our favorite southern MN towns: Faribault on 11/9 and Austin on 11/11. Two shows in one week!

The Fairbault show was rescheduled from September when Chan was under the weather--if you bought tickets the first time around they are valid for this performance, worry not. 

May we say how privileged we feel to be able to deploy the resources of our great state of Minnesota? As recipients of Legacy Amendment funds we are able to present shows in smaller communities such as Faribault, Red Wing, Detroit Lakes, Brainerd and Worthington. The Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund and the Minnesota State Arts Board support many wonderful things. Always remember it and let's keep that bad boy rolling when he comes around again, bless his sweet do-gooding hide.
