Matty has quit the band, so we are three again.  A broken plate=more room in the cupboard.  For now we are reorganizing the set list and digging deep for songs that have been neglected or forgotten.    The current lineup is Ann Wright, banjo, fiddle, cello, guitar; Art Peterson, accordion, Ukulele, guitar; Laurie Miller, bass, all on vocals.

Expect SPECIAL GUESTS in the Ghost chair have been Greg Pratt, Kurt Regas, Celu, Tom Cline, Ken Hayes, Joe Cullen.

We still play on at the Starry Plough Pub most (except the second) Saturdays, 5-7 PM Pacific.  Well worth a stop-by; no cover, good American-style pub food, many taps, wine, and other beverages.  Kids welcome, too.
