    Trying to find this Band or it’s people or both. They’re wonderful. We’ve missed having them at yearly kitchen party in March (5 years ago was out last gathering). Stephen made a CD of it and we listen to it regularly, with the songs and the family and all the good craic as well. Where are they now?
