Free MP3 Download of the Month.  For this month's free MP3 download, we reached into our collection of live recordings of past gigs and came up with this jewel from 2012: Moonlight in Vermont by Mark with one of this month's guest musicians, Ray Wood.

This recording was created in 2012 in Bremerton WA. Rhonda recalls standing on the sidewalk and listening to Mark and Ray playing through the outside speaker. The sound was light and carefree that night. Every night has its own charm.
