CROOKED JADES… Go Boldly where no old-time string band has gone before…. We are still in the afterglow of the world premiere of “Bright Land” at the Joyce Theater in New York (August 2010). It was gratifying beyond our wildest dreams to be greeted with passionate, receptive, intelligent and enthusiastic audiences that filled the house to the brim every single night. You humbled us with your dedication and keen observation, and reminded us that these moments where we are all together are what the months of sweat and tears are for. We hope you’ll check out our photos in our Facebook gallery, especially in the Bright Land photo gallery, plus hundreds hundreds more on Flickr and read quotes and reviews from the show.

We’re looking forward to welcoming back east coast musicians Charlie Rose and Rose Sinclair to join us for the two weeks of intense rehearsal with the dancers before the west coast premiere, and to working with the amazing Bruce Kaphan once again to record the “Bright Land” soundtrack. This soundtrack will be available later in the year.
