  • NEW CD RELEASE! Swallowtail Coat, the Cylinder Recordings! Take home some old familiar melodies presented in a less-familiar way, the way they were first encountered by turn-of-the-century audiences! Remember when we recorded into a big ol' cone with wax cylinder expert Martin Fisher? We released a songbook with sheet music for our rendition of "Swallowtail Coat" plus a digital download of all of our cylinder recordings. Now you can also buy those cylinder recordings all on their own, on an album featuring Grace's dapper rabbit artwork. Get your copy online at or in person at any of our shows!

Kris is the host and we're the house band, and boy has it been one heck of a year! We're so proud of what this show has accomplished and where it's headed.
