For twelve years I was half of a folk/folk rock duo playing our original songs. We never recorded our music, and in May 2020 my partner Mike passed. I didn't want our music to pass too, so I corralled a few acquaintances to help me record a cd, and was pleased enough with the outcome to consider continuing. We had a playlist of about 30 originals, 13 of which are on the cd. I'd like to find someone to play them with(along with any music you would like), or just find others to play in a band. Unfortunately, when I lost Mike, I also lost my band room, so a practice location, at least with more than one other player, would be a problem. I have a former bandmate, a drummer, who has a great space, but until covid is under control, times are tough. Give the music a listen. It's mostly Mike's songs(in his honor), mine are a little more progressive, but these are pretty representative. If anyone is interested, let me know, I'm retired and maybe can work things out. Peace. P.S. Listen to more on Youtube, search Songs from Sonora by Flecha.

Not the original format, but the musicians who helped with the recording played banjo and violin and they fit perfectly...
