"We’re so happy we could be a part of the Travelers fall streaming series - Greater Hartford Arts Council is providing the public with some great socially distanced music and supporting area artists at the same time! Music opportunities are rare at the moment, and it felt great to be working on a fresh creative project backed up by a great sponsor." - Nate Lawson, NDMCTravelers Lunchtime Music Series
"[Michael Carabello and I] both love playing together, so it was nice to get together and show each other what we’ve been working on and incorporate that into our set.
