In February, we completed a tour of Europe performing our new songs and old  in the Netherlands and Belgium. Joining us on the tour at various times were Janet Cotraccia (vocal, percussion), Amy Merrill (violin, nickelharpa), Kathy Ziegler (piano, vocal), Ellen Shae (guitar, vocal), Kimberly Claeys (vocal), and Gait Klein Kromhof (harmonica, vocal).


In January, we finished a new album of original music - called "We Still Know How to Love" - recorded in Woodstock, NY, Ithaca, NY, and Ooigem, Belgium. The album was officially released in 2020 and was featured in a February European tour of Belgium and the Netherlands (our 11th time!). 

Produced by Julie Last.

“Tom Mank has spent a number of years developing his own approach to music.  In this song, he seems to have taken the best parts of what he does so well and puts them together.  Tom is cool.  So are the rest of the musicians in this video.” - Frank Gutch, Jr, February, 2018
