Our folk duet has created an 1812 showcase. Yes folk music did exist in this era (not everyone was sitting around listenning to fife's drums and pipes). Some of our original recordings, about the 1812 era, now reside in the Canadian National Archives. We have performed this showcase live at 3 major 1812 festivals: 1. The Governor Generals visit to the Brock Monument in Queenston Heights,  2. The Capture of Detroit 1812 Fest of Windsor, 3. Roots to Boots 1812 Fest of Amherstburg. If anyone is interested in a live performance, by our duet, we can be contacted at: gonewrong@hotmail.ca
