I'd encourage people to purchase the latest CD that Fine Company released.
Some excellent songs on it and there harmony is excellent.

Don Mitchell and Jim Portillo are definitely living the lives they want with
their excellent music. I would encourage all who are able to attend. The
music is lively and high quality.
