The download is available for FREE at out Jeff's recap of the show:Late in the evening of August 30th, 2013… or, was it early in the morning of August 31st? Danny Barnes, Larry Keel, Jenny Keel and myself were led into the Elk's Lodge of Troy, Ohio to play a late night show for a packed room of folks who had spent their day in the blazing late summer sun…enjoying themselves to the fullest. We wondered if they had anything left in the tank… By God, did they ever. Through the sweat, the endless toasts, the folks who faded in the heat of the crowded room… I hope you enjoy a few hours of bluegrass fun between me and some of my dearest friends. Late night from Troy… no holding back now, folks.Live From The Elk’s Lodge Track List:1. Bluegrass Breakdown2. Angel With The Golden Hair3. The Wedding Song4. The Mountain Song5. Red Haired Boy6.
