Rounders ~ '...young men, carefree and assertive in spirit, 
often risqué and associated with the banjo...'

Many thanks to all who helped make our Southwest Tour a success!
To our friends, old and new, who hosted us, the organizers of the FFOTM, AFTM, and Judy Muldawer, and all the music lovers and dancers who came out to see us!

The best quote of the trip, from an enthusiastic dancer at our Flagstaff house Concert:
"You were throwing it down, and I was finding my groove!"

Billy & Betty 2014
Big thanks also to our bandmates for the trip, for their music and friendship. Hilary Dirlam is such a fine musician, and hats off to Scott for being our fearless driver!
