Song of the Month, "Leavin' All Our Troubles Far behind; Upcoming Shows

Hi Guys,

Hope you are all doing well! Our Song of the Month for November is called "Leavin’ All Our Troubles Far Behind," a song from the Caught in the Middle CD. To read the songwriter notes, check out the lyrics, and listen to the song, click here!

We'd like to thank all of you who have attended our shows over the last couple of weeks! As always, we really appreciate your support, and without you the shows would not be any fun! Here are our upcoming shows:

On Friday, 11/20, we are playing at the New York Wine and Culinary Center. They have a great little bar and restaurant on the second floor. Along with its great entrees, the Culinary Center is stocked with wine and beer that is made only in New York. If you want a Budweiser, Guinness, or some exotic wine that is made in France or Spain, this is not your place. If you are looking for something to do that is new, interesting, and fun, stop in and check it out! Should be a great time! (New York Wine and Culinary Center, 800 S. Main Street, Cdga., NY, 7 PM to 9 PM, (585) 394-7070) To learn more about the Culinary Center, click here!

On early Sunday evening, 11/22, we will be at the Canandaigua Brew Company! Scot and Shylo Caton, our next-door neighbors, are the owners, and along with them, we have developed a little Sunday night monthly jam. This is a casual event, and we will not be using a sound system. If you are a player, and you want to join us, bring your guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, etc! Should be a good time! (Canandaigua Brew Company, 14 Phoenix Street, Cdga., NY, 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM, (585) 394-8485)

On Friday, 12/4, we will be at the Lumberyard Grille in Canandaigua for a "happy hour." Along with its well-known Friday night fish-fry, the Lumberyard has many other terrific entrees! So, start your weekend off with a few drinks, a delicious dinner, and some "good time" music! (Lumberyard Grille, 106 Bemis Street, Cdga, NY, 6 PM to 9 PM, (585) 393-5550) To learn more about the Lumberyard Grille, click here!

On Saturday night, 12/5, we will be headed to Irondequoit to play at Shamrock Jack's! This is the place where our song "Cool Hand Tuite" (aka Shaking the Bush) was born! It's a tribute to Jimmy Tuite, a retired member of the RPD! You just might see Jimmy at the bar when we are there! You can download the song right here! Come out for some great food and some "good time " music! Should be a good time! (Shamrock Jack's, 4554 Culver Road (near Seabreeze), Irondequoit, NY, 9 PM to 1 AM (585) 323-9310) To learn more about Shamrock Jack's, click here!

Have to get going for now. By the way, if you know of any venue in your area where we might be able to perform (bar, coffeehouse, house concert, etc.,), let us know. We don't need very much money, and in addition to being able to visit with you, it will give us a chance to travel, meet some new people, and spread our music a little more throughout the land! Hope you are all doing well! Drop us a line and let us know what is going on for you! Love ya!

Siobhan and Frank
