Hello Friends! we are very excited about our Christmas Caravan concerts coming up!
And to thank you for joining us on our musical journey, and being on this email list with us, we are giving away one pair of Tix to each Ontario city we are performing in.
If you would like to come to a show, simply reply to this email without changing the subject heading. We will do a draw for Ontario tickets by Thursday at midnight. Please make sure you indicate WHICH CITY you are interested in.
For those of you too far to join us for these concerts, as well as our friends in Alberta, we are also giving away a track for you- this will be on our Christmas Caravan CD which we are releasing next year. It is a version of Greensleeves we are recording with a collective of Turkish Roma string players from Istanbul. You can download it here http://tinyurl.com/jnl76sj
