Little Tommy Saunders

Like most other musicians who adore him Rod and I first crossed paths with Tommy Saunders because of the music. He along with his sidekick and best friend “nearly Normal” Warren were co-hosts of the Folk-it! Show that aired on this wonderful independent internet radio...

One crazy beautiful road trip!

One crazy beautiful road trip!

Its so easy to get caught up in how many people show up, how many CDs you sell, how much money you make, how many Facebook Likes you get, how many photos get posted, how many comments on the photos and the list goes on… yep. I’m guilty. But as we make our way down the...

Northern Spirit Radio and (NPR) Michigan Radio

It was an extreme privilege to once again work with the young ladies at Vista Maria in Dearborn Heights along side Mike Ball and Kitty Donohoe. Thanks to this wonderful organization called Lost Voices founded and run by Mike Ball, we were able to spend a week helping...

New Video!!

New Video!!

Super jazzed to present this video Charlie Steen filmed of us on July 9, 2016! Stay tuned for more from the concert inside the Chelsea Depot, but this is the only one we shot outside by the tracks. Just for fun!! Featuring the amazing Jason Dennie on Mando and vocals...

Happy June!

Before I bring you news from our small part of the world I wanted to say that we sure hope you're all surrounding yourselves with, and devouring as much peace, love and friendship as you can. The world is littered with scary, mean, hateful people but there are a...

Happy Spring!!

This video (taken by Larry Wolfe) is from our last band show at Trinity House Theatre in September 2014! We're super happy to be returning with some new songs and special guest opener, Jon Shain.

Why We Love House Concerts, pt 2

The first time at any venue is a bit scary, filled with unknowns and potential regret. House concerts come with their own set of unknowns but when the hosts are as genuinely friendly and enthusiastic about music as Joanne & Joe Smiddie-Brush and Phil & Carla Slates...

Why We LOVE House Concerts!!

In May this past year we had the honor of performing at the Concerts at the Cabin's 100th House Concert. Being a part of this monumental event, which also happened to be the 10th anniversary of our first performance at Concerts at the Cabin, which was also our first...

another ending, another beginning…

another ending, another beginning…

Much as I LOVE this time of year for its promise of a fresh start and the hopefulness of accomplishing some of those things on my ever growing list, I also find it hard to fight the feelings of regret about all the things I DIDN'T accomplish last year. No matter... I...

West Side, East Side

Join us for the last two Capps concerts of 2015! (West) Salt of the Earth (Nov 15) and (East) Mama's Coffee House (Nov 21) The above photo was taken by Michael Hacala when we opened for Jill Jack a bunch of years ago (2008 maybe) at the Kensington Church concert...

Another one of the songs originally from our “Take Me To The Fair” EP, “Pretty Memories” is littered with metaphor and simile. It’s about moving on after the end of a seemingly brief relationship. It kicks off by likening the romance to a summer storm and a traveling...

Behind the Songs

Behind the Songs

Welcome to the first issue/episode of BTS (Behind the Songs). The idea of blogging about the songs on our new CD "Searching for Neverland" was not an original one. Far from it. I've seen this type of thing done by others - most recently Mary Gauthier - and it was her...

Found myself looking back at some old 'blog' posts that never made it to this newer version of our website and this one struck me as worth re-sharing. (I admit to having fixed more than a few typos) January 12, 2008 I found a sweet old book at our local antique store...

Great Review of "Searching For Neverland"

Review by Bill Keith (Booker of Trinity House Theatre and Radio Host) I knew it had been awhile since Annie and Rod Capps released a full length CD, but I had no idea that it had been six years. In between “My Blue Garden” and “Searching for Neverland” they released...
