The record was recorded over two nights in late January 2020 at the Cafe Carpe in Fort Atkinson, WI. I flew to Mexico two days later to get immersed in another culture. A few days after my return in late February, the realization of the pandemic hit and all of our worlds paused. This is not just a recording of two nights shared with a lovely audience packed in the Cafe Carpe’s listening room. It’s now both a love letter from the past and a hand extended from a future when we can all once again commune with each other over music, art, food, spirits, sports – or to just feel the embrace of human not in your COVID bubble.
