In a testament to the strength of their friendship and musical synergy, they kept the trio alive for more than three decades despite geographical separation, motherhood and demanding careers. At Caffe Lena, the trio celebrates the release of their new album, Under the Weather, with songs inspired by sources as diverse as “The Bay Psalm Book” (1640), juke box collections, family reminiscences and old movies.
