“A highly-effective blend of these two spheres… only rarely have we heard a prominent Jewish counterpoint to the gospel music that has been a part of bluegrass since Bill Monroe’s earliest recordings.”
— Bluegrass Today

While we are finishing work on our new record we wanted to share some video that we were able to capture with the help of Readylight media. This is a glimpse into our recording process and a look at some of the truly amazing musicians that we were lucky enough to collaborate with for our album.

A three song medley with one of our favorite old-time spirituals and two of our own compositions about gratitude and celebrating life. Thanks to Jeff Carpenter from Readylight Media in Nashville TN who dropped in on us in the Northeast to help us shoot the video.

The last of our videos from the series produced with Readylight media this summer. One more song off of our upcoming record, trimmed down for the duo setting. Hine Ma Tov, how good it is for brothers and sisters to be together!

A Duo version of a track on our upcoming recording. There are many places where we look for help when in a time of need, sometimes to our family, sometimes to friends, and sometimes to the Mountains. Esa Einai.
