A mutual friend of theirs made the connection and they have been making together ever since. After playing in each other's bands and performing together as part of Hollywood's longest residency with the Saddle Ranch Fiddlers, they knew they had to take their music on the road, and they have, playing nearly 1,000 shows together in the USA, UK and Europe.
