Fred's Two Cents Worth - July 14, 2008

Just to add my two cents worth, I thought everybody did just great. I was constantly looking both to my right and left and saw those fingers moving around with wonderful music coming out. Nobody would believe
that we hardly had anything to work with on paper; often, not even a melody line. The real music came from our hearts and it sounded just wonderful, at least to me.

A note from Dottie - July 14, 2008

Last night was THE BEST! You all were magnificent--new material and old. I had so many pieces in my ear for the rest of the night. Thank you! I am SO LUCKY to play
with all of you and to have so much fun! Jill-your niece was so cute--I wished her the best on her musical journey. This gig was the best yet, and I am feeling more
at ease, and can have more smile-time! Be well---WE ALL BROKE LOTS OF OUR LEGS LAST NIGHT-so to speak(classical music send off: "break a leg" for a good performance------Dottie

The Heart of Foley Road - May 5, 2008

I know that none of this really needs to be said, but I'll say it
anyway. I thought we put on one hell of a performance Saturday night. I got so many compliments, I couldn't believe it. We gave the audience a great big dose of our Foley Road magic and I could not have been more proud to have been a part of it.
Thank you so much, I love you all.

College Hill Coffee Company - April 20, 2008

Parting Glass - August 9, 2007

Jill's second song with Foley Road. It sounds great!! Give it a listen.

Le garcon Danny c'est ici!! - August 7, 2007

This is Jill's intro to the world wide web and what would be more fitting than the great Irish classic "Danny Boy"! I tell you, it will bring tears to your eyes.

Another Song!!! - August 2, 2007

Had another recording session last night and did a really great version of a Celtic tune called "Ships are Sailing". This one you have to give a listen to. It sounds great and everybody contributed. Ann with her flying hammers, Fred, with his punchy guitar. Teresa and her fabulous flute and Jill doing the 12-string. Oh yeah, and yours truly on the bodhran.

Our Last Gig - July 29, 2007

We had a great time at the North Bend United Methodist Church, so much so that we have been invited for two more engagements. One will be at the end of August and is on our calender. The second one will during the holiday season.

Ann has a Webster!! - July 24, 2007

Ann recently was in Michigan and bought herself a brand new hammer dulcimer. She says the sound is impressive and that the band will love it. We hope you all will to.

Just finished a new song with Foley Road. - July 19, 2007

Re-did an old classic by the Irish harpist O'Carolan, Si Bheag Si Mohr, with a bit of a twist. Fred is playing classical guitar, I am on lap dulcimer. What is really fabulous is Ann on hammer dulcimer and Teresa on silver flute and penny whistle. How can I be so lucky to play with such talent?!!!
