American roots music with lots of harmonies, fiddle, harmonica, and good-time down-home vibe. From bluegrass to blues, with three strong songwriting voices, and a few carefully selected covers.
NOTES
Gemini Junction, based in coastal San Diego County, finally coalesced around this album in 2016, after playing in different configurations and under different names for eight years. We think we’ve finally got it right! Featuring:

JT Moring. Songwriter, vocalist, maintaining the rhythm on guitar, banjo, bass, even some jug and autoharp on this album.

Annie Rettic. Songwriter, classically trained vocalist, playing a unique five-string viola (and kazoo when needed).

Richie Strell. Songwriter, vocalist, award winning harmonicat (harmonicist?) and spoon player – both metal and wooden! And kazoo, when one is just not enough.

With some help here from our friends:
Mike Bradley, slide guitar and bass.
Jimmy Brennecke, cajon.
Barry Brown, piano and bass.
Ian McCartor, whistling like nobody’s business.

Westward Ho!

Our new folk song assembly program got a nice writeup in the Troubadour magazine here. We performed it in Del Mar and the Principal said this: "Our students and staff absolutely loved the assembly today! It struck the right balance of listening to appreciate the music and having the audience participate.  American history came alive for the students...." Today's kids still connect with folk music!
