The new raised bed is built and the heirloom starters are going in. The Speedwell is blooming, the creeping thyme is creeping and the blue jays have nested in the cedar. Shapiro Brothers are emerging from our Winter caves with fresh eyes, green thumbs and a vengeance. Don't be afraid. This is our normal look. Come see for yourselves at our upcoming shows, including our set at Green Guitar Folk House in Lenexa, Kansas with Mikal's full electric band, The Musical. If you like Shapiro Brothers, you'll love this electrified version with a rhythm section as juicy as a strawberry. And you don't even have to wait until summer.
