Our CD Release Party on Sunday, January 30th, at Timucua (www.timucua.com), the beautiful custom-built concert venue within the home of Benoit Glazer, the conductor of Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba at Downtown Disney, was a great success.  Thanks to all for supporting us.  Special thanks to Benoit and his family for their hospitality, Joy for her amazing penny whistle and flute, Vala for her gorgeous vocals, and the Emotions Dance Company for their stunning, theatrical interpretations of Forefathers’ music.  

 

Our new CD, Aurora, is available through this web site.  If you email us your mailing address, we’ll send you a CD with a SASE to send us back $12 (for CD and shipping).  It’s that easy!  We’re online for download at Amazon and iTunes!
