I’ve gotten to see Rick and Lindsey play twice in the past two months and both times their performance is top notch!
The harmony between their voices and instruments energizes the soul. Their love for each other and the music is very evident and makes each song that much more powerful.
I highly recommend seeing them if you have the chance. Especially this summer!
