Coming Home

Everywhere we have been performing people kept asking when they could buy a CD of our Michigan songs. Coming Home has arrived!

Coming Home tells of the lakes, love, life, lumberjacks, and the land. We do some political lampooning, pick blue grass, sing shanties, boogy-woogy down the highway, play authentic Michigan calypso and even rock a polka for the shanty boys.

Coming Home was recorded between February 4 and April 4, 2006 at the Purple Spot in Lowell, Michigan. Available in MP3 format Coming Home MP3 for only $12.
