About the musicians:
Brad and Jonathan have been playing together since around 2002
. During that time Jonathan has had to absorb the wide variety of traditional folk, blues, bluegrass, and original music Brad likes to play. Both musicians are craftspeople for their day jobs: Brad makes and sells pottery in Spirit Lake, Idaho and Jonathan specializes in restoration house painting in Spokane, Washington. The same attention to detail that goes into their crafts goes into their avocation of music making. In addition, Jonathan actually knows something about music, having an M.A. in music. Brad pretends he knows what he's doing and plays it by ear.
There's a CD out of their first gig at the Shop in Spokane. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. It's $10.00, including shipping.
