How about a magazine cover? Here’s the latest Georgia Connector Magazine, with a fine write-up about The Wild Fires and Cowboy Angel Music. On the cover (seated) along with a local street gang bluegrass band:
Our friend Daniel Peiken posted an impromptu performance of new song “A Fortune to Give” feat. Adam Poulin on fiddle. Have a look & a listen from AthensRockShow.
