Relive "Global Play Music on the Porch Day"

Andrew and his fiddling daughter Madi, plus several bandmates and friends, gathered on the front porch on Saturday August 26th to participate in the global grassroots phenomena known as “Play Music on the Porch Day.” Since they livestreamed it to Facebook, you can hear them play a variety of original and traditional songs for roughly an hour.


Andrew's Caveat - This is NOT a professional video setup, just an iPhone livestreaming through our wifi and from a distance from the porch too. But, you can get a feel of the kind of mischief we make musically when no one else is around too. Hope you enjoy it!
