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...

What a year!

What a year!

It was this very time last year, sitting in the tiny living room of the townhouse at which we landed in early 2013 after an abrupt, radical and painful change in our life, when we decided to make another change - this time for the better. Don't get me wrong, the...

We’re still here…

We’re still here…

Well, so much for my goal of writing a new post at the top of every month. Life does present its share of interruptions doesn't it.  Funny enough, just as I typed those very words, I got interrupted. Don't even remember what it was, but that's the way things have been...

Sweet Smell of September

Sweet Smell of September

Does September have a smell? Sure it does. Whether its sweet or not is probably a matter of perspective. I'm not buying this "end of summer" chatter. Mostly cause it feels like we didn't really have a summer but its still 80 degrees outside and the leaves haven't...

and the snow hasn't given up yet …

Fortunately for us we got to escape for 10 glorious days mixing performances with some much need vacation down south. It started warming up the minute we crossed the Ohio border into Kentucky and we woke up in Knoxville to sunshine and 45 degrees! Thanks to all the...

From St. Louis to Arkansas to Texas and back home

From St. Louis to Arkansas to Texas and back home

We're on our way back to Michigan full of gratitude for what has been an incredible trip full of memorable experiences. First we set out for St. Louis where I was at the helm for one last Folk Alliance Region Midwest conference. With endless thanks to all the...

Feels like Texas!

Feels like Texas!

It's been almost two months since we've returned from Texas and we're already making plans to go back in October to perform at Songbird Sanctuary House Concerts in Houston. More about that later. Kerrville was, once again, a really groovy time which can primarily be...
