Love Remembered, Love Forgot has seven new songs, two older ones we’ve never recorded, and three previously recorded songs given new – definitive – treatments.  It’s got guest appearances by our friends Tom Rush, Jonatha Brooke, Krista Detor, Pat Wictor, Trina Hamlin, Eric Schwartz, Yani Batteau, and Sophie Buskin.  It’s got a dee-vine rhythm section: besides our third arm, percussionist Marshal Rosenberg, there are Jeff St. Pierre (bass), Kevin Barry (guitars), and Corey Schreppel (drums).  It was lovingly produced by Neale Eckstein at Fox Run Studio.

Here is a quick photo (taken by John Magee) of our June 24 concert at the legendary Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY.

We had a great time with Christine Lavin, John Forster, Shanna in a Dress and Julie Gold during our Buskin & Batteau and Friends: April Fools' Tour. The shows honored comedy music icon Tom Lehrer and the wonderful Cheryl Wheeler.

In Sellersville, PA, it was a special surprise when we discovered that Steve Chapin was in the audience.  Christine decided to have us all (including Steve) join in on her song "Sensitive New Age Guys."

 More info on upcoming concerts will be posted on our Concerts page soon.
