Hey, we've been having fun in this new little ensemble we're calling CornMaiz, which is just me, my daughter Zoey, her fiancé, Arlo, and my partner, Yani Vozos! We're doing lots of traditional tunes, some originals, and a few covers of our favorite pop songs with a string band treatment. This is a song I learned from Jean Ritchie, with some new lyrics I wrote. Hope you enjoy!
