Hey folks,

Long time, no update. Apologies! For those who don't know, our next record is currently being edited, mixed and mastered by our buddy Jake, who produced our last record, "Sunshine and Shadow." We've heard almost half of the record and it sounds really great - we're going down to visit him in NYC next weekend to have a listen.

We performed with my Junior Choir and the rest of Chorus Angelicus and Gaudeamus out of Torrington (link) and it was an absolute blast. I am so thrilled that two of my passions could come together to create a wonderful project - we did "The Parting Glass" with the choir, and if a video ever surfaces online, I will post it to this blog.

We'll be playing a few times before the new record comes out (by Christmas, if all goes well), and we'll have the CD available for pre-order soon. We think it'll be called "Bound Far Away" and we have some thoughts about the record design, but nothing is set in stone yet.

I'll try to get a video at our next rehearsal of one of our new songs...we've added "Leaving of Liverpool" to our rep and we're working out arrangements of "Rant and Roar," "Four Green Fields," and "Whiskey in the Jar," as well as a new instrumental set.

Greg, Dave, and Chris J lost power all week due to the storm. Chris V never lost power. Jeff moved. We haven't heard from Matt in a while, but he's down south and probably didn't get hit as hard as those of us in West Hartford.

Jake spends a lot of time looking at this.
