Here's to a Better 2021!
This year has certainly gotten off to a rough start, but we're convinced that things will get better in the days and weeks ahead. There are many challenges here in the U.S. and around the world, but we strongly believe that music is a balm that helps bring us together. Whatever style you like - folk, blues, bluegrass, country, swing, or other expressions of home-made roots music - we hope you'll take the time to pick up an instrument, or simply use your voice, to bring healing and strength to your community. We're all in this together!
We hope you are staying safe and healthy during these unusual times. Keep in touch.
