FEATURING: Shane Leonard - guitar, vocals Kai Welch - trumpet Chris Miller - saxophone Jefferson Hamer - guitar Kristin Andreassen - harmony vocal
ABOUT THE SONG: We recorded this song at sunrise, weary and full-hearted after staying up all night playing songs in far-flung locations across the island, lugging bass drums, guitars, pump organs, chairs, and umbrellas through the forest bramble, a mobile feast for every mosquito. The arrangement was intended to include about half a dozen other musicians; the final cut features a diminished cast - the only rascals left standing in the soft light of dawn.

Founded and Directed by Kristin Andreassen and Laura Cortese, MoM produces annual events including a week-long “island camp” in June and winter weekend “house camps” in Brooklyn and Boston.
