Album Notes
This album is a live monorecording of two great Americana Musicians playing with some of their favorite old songs. An open theatre provided a great space, and the two men sat down and played the songs as they pleased. This is a no frills recording. And it's better off for it.

This Album is dedicated to our Grandfathers. We did not plan this album. We just enjoyed an opportunity and sat down. These are a hand full of old songs that tucked their way into our musical lexicon for some reason or another; songs that influence us and that we just can't completely put away. The histories to the songs are much longer and bigger than two guys sitting in an empty theater with one microphone and a laid back evening. Humbly, we hand them to you. Sing along. There's room for more harmonies, so sing loudly.

Generally, we like writing and performing new songs. Somehow the idea of a simple traditional album kept looking us straight in the face. So, in October 2009, when Jay and I found a little theatre space at Christopher Dock High School that would let us squat for an evening or two, we set up one omni-directional mic, sat down across from each other, and hit record.

Recording with one microphone is all or nothing. There's no editing, no mixing, and very little post-production. So, the next decision was what to do with it. We decided to release the album to coincide with our second annual bicycle tour in May 2010. The marriage of traditional music and traditional transport seemed nice to us and we hope there's something in this recording that makes the din from what can be an overwhelming life, just a little simpler.
