As we enter our sixth summer of festivals, with hundreds of days of touring under our belts, over thirty countries performed in, an IBMA award and a GRAMMY nomination, we have decided that it is finally time for us to take a break from the road. The opportunity to play for thousands of people worldwide has given us such a deep and intimate look at humanity, and we couldn't feel more blessed to have shared that time with you.
During this pause we are going to be taking time for other creative pursuits, family gatherings, hiking trips... you name it. We hope you will keep in touch with us individually to follow what creative endeavors this time will inspire. Until September 2016 we will be appearing at festivals and clubs all over the US and Europe, and have a few shows in the planning stages for February 2017. We look forward to seeing you all out on the road over the next few months - see below for our complete list of tour dates.
If we could personally thank each and every one of you for your support and love, we would. We have the most amazing and dedicated fans who have made our dreams possible in so many ways. So THANK YOU. From the bottom of our hearts.

We have just returned from another amazing trip abroad, this time to the vibrant metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City and the beautiful architecture of Huế, Vietnam! We had an incredible and enriching time playing at music and dance schools, a school for the blind, an intentional living community, a club the size of a small stadium, two festival stages (complete with dizzying graphics projected onto a screen behind us), a palace patio, a tv station, and at the American Consulate in HCMC. We collaborated with local musicians (and learned this really pretty Vietnamese folk song, "Hoa Thơm Bướm Lượn" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufb2oNQ0CaE) tried SO many new kinds of food, haggled in the markets, hopped on the back of scooters, and found a new definition for jaywalking – talk about having blind faith... you just gotta start walking into traffic and whatever you do, don't step backwards.
We are so lucky to have had this opportunity, and we are deeply grateful to Arts Envoy and the U.S. State Department for making the trip possible. But we haven't forgotten about you, America! We are so excited to be hitting the road for a slew of festivals and club dates. We'll be bopping around all over the place. See you out there!
