We come from different musical backgrounds, and we started playing together because we liked the sound of the accordion, fiddle, mandolin and bass. We’d never heard that instrumentation before.
We recorded these tracks in a tiny room at Harvard University over the course of a few hours on a wintry day in February 2008. Forrest’s freshman year roommate, Hoong Ern, was the sound engineer.
And then we ended up living in separate places for a while. But we still kept getting requests from people who wanted to download “Eurail Pass.”
So something clicked, and we finally realized that we should put these tracks out there for everyone to enjoy.
Welcome, and thank you for listening!
