Caffe Lena with Mary Flower and Cindy Cashdollar!


I'm thrilled to be playing with two great artists, blues virtuoso Mary Flower and "slide queen" Cindy Cashdollar. Both are longtime close friends. This particular trio has never played before and it's not likely we will play together again for the foreseeable future, so come and hear us. It will be a unique experience, that's for sure!
