Well, sort of.  Our new Pea Pickin’ Hearts Creekwood Crow stickers arrived while we were out of town.  Don’t they look fantastic?  We meant for you to put them on your car as a bumper sticker, but we’ll leave that decision to you. (continues below picture)

They need a lot of work, but we’re excited about the possibilities.  With a little division, some repair and maybe even a little lighting

Stay tuned to see the after pictures sometime in the next few weeks!

Another PIECE…

IT IS ALL COMING together

As the release date for our Creekwood Crow CD approaches (August 13th), everyday brings a package to our doorstep.  We’re loving this HUGE 5″ square wood-mounted stamp that arrived today from rubberstamps.net.  We have been using this Iowa-based company for years, and each time a new stamp arrives, we remember why.

Can’t wait to put this to good use.  I suspect those of you that know us can figure out how…

Going digital…

2014 July 14

Creekwood Crow CD by the Pea Pickin' HeartsTHE TIMES
have changed

So we have a new CD coming out entitled “Creekwood Crow” (8/13/2014), and we’ve made the decision to only release it digitally.  No, really.  We have more and more people buying music digitally, and we’ve decided to downsize our CD merch case and go digital.  We are going to continue to duplicate specialty CDs like our Christmas in July best seller for retail outlets.  But, our original releases will only be sold via digital download cards at shows or online.  Whatcha think? 

In addition, we are contemplating accepting credit cards at shows for merchandise like CDs & bumperstickers AND for tips.  Would you leave a tip via credit card?

We’d like to hear your thoughts.

Barronelli Button Accordian 2EXTRA
space

Okay, we don’t really have EXTRA space, but I couldn’t resist this little Barronelli Button Accordion in the key of C.

(A button accordion is a type of accordion on which the melody-side keyboard consists of a series of buttons rather than piano-style keys.)

The original bellows are decent at holding air but understandably show wear. It is in the key of C with 7 treble buttons and 2 bass buttons.  I just couldn’t resist.

Rochelle C-1 ConcertinaThe Barronelli is meant to amuse the senses until the C-1 Rochelle Concertina arrives. 

 

It is a beauty, and we are excited to experiment with a new rudimentary sound.

Our upcoming CD, Creekwood Crow, has a decidedly Folk feel, and it really came as a surprise to us.  So, this instrument felt like a natural experimental progression.  The Rochelle model (2nd generation) is a 30-button, key of C/G.  Black celluloid finish, white plastic buttons, riveted action, Italian reeds (Cagnoni) and 7-fold bellows.

TREASURES by Mail…

Today, the Pea Pickin’ Hearts received a “Maine Made” treasure from Chris Gray at Riff Wooden Picks Jon usually prefers to play with a Fender teardrop-style pick, and this one will get a try at our Pea Pickin’ Hearts gig at The Cabin Cafe on Sunday, May 4th! (continues below)

The Pea Pickin' Hearts and Riff Wood Picks!

Jon had initial reservations about a wooden pick, given he is used to a slightly flexible Fender Heavy celluloid pick.  However, he appreciates the tone (a little bright & brash) than lends itself to the Appalachian-inspired sounds of the Pea Pickin’ Hearts.

Get your own in the Riff Wood Picks Etsy Shop!
