Exciting news! We just finished a fantastic recording session with producer extraordinaire, Robert Brown. We've recorded a variety of our own arrangements including pop, jazz and folk music, to a couple of very well known film classics. These should be up on our website before you can say "I Got Rhythm"!
Meanwhile, here is a sneak peek of a beloved traditional folk tune, arranged by our own violist, Matt Brown.
We'd love to know what you think!
