Dear listener,

First of all, thank you for finding this piece of music. Please enjoy this on the house. This demo is not meant to produce profits, only to introduce Hat & Boots and to provide an example of our sound. Here are two original songs and two covers of traditional songs. We hope that you will listen and enjoy this as what ever it may be to you.

Thank you again,
Hat & Boots

Thank yous: Rhys Forgie, thank you for doing this thing with me. It's going to be fun! My friend and teacher, Pete Devine, thank you for working with me on the arrangement performed on "Trouble In Mind." Another thank you to Justin Totora for bringing "Dink's Song"and Dave Van Ronk into my life. I admire each of you and thank you again for your support.

I am not sure where these songs will take me, or if they will take me anywhere or maybe everywhere. I am trying not to worry about the future too much. I hope you enjoy what you hear and the experience I may provide.
