Staff Comments:

We caught up with Ricarda and Nick at the Abbey Festival and thought that their album deserved exposure so here it is for all to enjoy. I haven't quite figured out how to take samples of the music so the second best thing I can do is to point you here: http://www.myspace.com/waywardminstrels/music and let you ears run riot.
