For basement Groupmuse #13, we're changing it up - the space is no stranger to violins and cellos, but this time, it's pluckier than usual. The Right Reasons, a mandolin & guitar duo (Joel Michael-Schwartz and Todd Shelar respectively) adapts myriad musical traditions from around the world into their own wholly unique musical experience, and I'm thrilled to share their music with you soon!
