Pharis & Jason Romero have thrilled and mesmerized audiences over many years with a melodic and instrumental blend of sounds from the higher altitudes. Radiating out of their mountain home, where they build the instruments that they play, the healing qualities of their music are at work again on Sweet Old Religion, a new collection of all-original tunes, out today.
Calling in from over the Rockies at 5:30, we will get a chance to hear from Pharis what they have in store for the summer, and to listen to a few samples of the new music, which you can also hear here: The Fretboard Journal
