New album "Live in the Gallery"!

Obviously this also means larger files, so I recommend you download to your computer rather than to your smartphone.

Intermittent harmonica and slide mandolin were added later back in town, and everything was mixed and mastered by yours truly to the best of my abilities. The song is about the state of the world in general and climate change in particular - any comments and further inquiries about the…
