I haven't seen them live, Arkie, so I can't say whether it's worth going to see them. However, I do have their CD and really like it. I like their pace, and they have fun weaving harmonies, and they don't overdo the arrangements. The songs themselves are for the most part interesting (the CD is a mix of both original stuff and their spin on a few trad. pieces), and the CD definitely has a mood to it. I like but don't love their voices, and one of them (I'm not sure which one) seems to intentionally do weird things with her pronunciation that I find annoying, but there's enough variety and sweet sounds overall that I proclaim the CD very likeable. I would definitely go see them if they were playing near me, partly out of curiosity. Margaret
