visit our new Patreon page

We’ve actually been talking about doing this for at least two years. Nothing like a new routine to give you that much needed kick in the butt...

What’s Patreon? It’s a great way of bringing you our music without all the driving. You can think of it like a subscription. For as little as $2 a month (doesn’t that sound like the standard come on...) you become a Patron, and in return we give you stuff—videos, previously un-released studio and live recordings, short stories, and who knows what else. We’re starting out “simply” with a free video of Jacquie’s song “Simple Truths” recorded in The Cabino—the "detached family room” she built in our backyard. And if you become a patron you'll also get the never released studio version of David Tamulevich's wonderful song "Simple Faith"--a long time favorite.

But wait there’s more! We’re also giving you “Forever Blowing Bubbles,” a story from Jacquie’s someday book, "Extraordinary Days in an Ordinary Life,"

We know it’s a lousy time be be asking for money, so we’re going to let you decide what this is all worth to you—all of our membership levels will get you the same stuff.

Thanks, enjoy, stay safe and hope we see you soon!


Come to Ireland in 2020!!

What an amazing time! These trips have been described as "tours for people who hate tours" and that couldn't be a better description. Several folks on this year's trip said it was the best vacation they've ever taken.

Single rooms are an additional $600 per person for all 9 nights (single room availability is limited). The fee includes all ground transportation, all lodging. including full breakfast. We also provide 3 evening group meals, and the cost for our featured Irish musicians, poets, writers, etc. Guests pay for their own flights to and from Shannon International Airport, all lunches, 6 dinners on your own, optional activites, and, of course drinks, tips, etc.

We'll tour the sights by day, visiting fishing villages, ancient stone circles and church ruins, the Cliffs of Moher, and The Burren, to name a few. And at night...incredible music. Some nights we hire a local songwriter to come play for us, most nights we go to an Irish pub for a traditional music session of jigs and reels followed by songs. No doubt, we’ll end up singing a
