Get ready for more trouble
Exciting arrangements sung by Evy Mayer and Jean Farnworth.


This duo is a fine example of what I think of as contemporary traditional musicians, who sing about modern life with the same spirit troubadours of the 19th century sang about their contemporary lives. This is a very engaging, charming album." (Christine Lavin's Top 46 Best of the "Sunday Breakfast" - WFUV 90.7 FM)

"This generous collection of 16 numbers is a well-produced, highly eclectic mix of songs, which showcases both performers' talents as vocalists, instrumentalists and interpreters... An outstanding aspect of this album is the ability of both Jean and Evy to tailor their vocal and emotional range to each song... In sum, this is a grand buffet, truly "Soup To Nuts". (Joanne Davis for The Folk Music Society of New York newsletter)
