Talking about "Music to Die For" on KLCC
Earlier this summer, on Tuesday, June 25th, Mike and Carleen and John Bredesen from the Eugene Masonic Cemetery group spoke with Michael Canning of KLCC about the "Music to Die For" concert series. During the interview, Mike & Carleen performed two songs, "It'd Still Be You" and "Proper Cup of Coffee". The interview is online at the KLCC website.
Ready For Christmas!
Did you miss it? Just before Christmas 2012 we released the long-awaited Mike & Carleen Christmas album, "Ready for Christmas". We'd been talking about a Christmas album for years. After Christmas 2011, we put most, but not all of the decorations away, leaving some up in our music room. For most of 2012, we worked on our Christmas music, starting in earnest during a beautiful week during summer on the Metolius River. "Ready for Christmas" features twelve tunes, including two originals. See and hear a video preview below!
