Vechirky at Kramarczuk's discontinued. . .

In fall of 2014, Kramarczuk's -- the Northeast Minneapolis home of our monthly gigs since 2008 -- ended its music series. Their decision to end the series had to do with fees music royalty companies started demanding from Kramarczuk's -- royalties demanded for hosting bands playing mostly folk music!

Debut CDs Are Now Available!

The CDs are entitled:

1. Могорич / Mohorych

In Ukrainian society, when someone does someone else a favor, the favor may be repayed with mohorych. What counts as mohorych? A basket of food, a bottle of spirits, a good time with good people. . .like a CD release party! We thank you for your support! See below for song list

2. Вечірка / Vechirka

Vechirka is one of several words in the Ukrainian language for party -- Ukrainian might technically have no word meaning "fun," but it sure has lots for party! From our monthly appearances at Kramarczuk's, to New Year's Eve Balls, private parties, weddings, etc., we've played a lot of parties -- and we hope you will bring the party home with you with one of these CDs! See below for song list
