Our Story 

We are singer, songwriter, wordsmith, poet, historian, storytellers


I (John) have been speaking into microphones since the age of six when I sat on my broadcaster father's lap and announced "We will now play the Cherubic Hymn." Jan has been singing all of her life and would sit in her back yard and sing harmony with her siblings, helping her mom with crowd control.  We met contradancing (New England line dancing described at the "most fun one can have with their clothes on. Jan had been dating scientists and engineers when we first met, and on our first date, I recited "The Cremation of Sam McGee AND the Shooting of Dan McGrew,  We married in 1984, there was music, ice cream, and magic at the wedding.

We have a sign in our kitchen that says "Marriages are made in is thunder and lightening." 


We feel our mission is to communicate, innovate, and co-create  


Purity of tone, with a bit of wit
Give us a listen,
You'll like us quite a bit
