Two Roads Home

Sometimes a change....sometimes a rest.....

Dear fans, friends and family,

It's with sadness that we announce an indefinite hiatus for Two Roads Home after over 20 years of performing together. Due to an unspecified arthritic condition and several years of almost constant pain, Bryan has chosen to take a moratorium on guitar playing for the time being.

This does not mean he won't be joining Abby in the future as a guest artist and/or collaborator. There is an album and a half worth of songs in the works and while we're not sure what form the final product will take, Bryan will be a part of their production for sure.

It also doesn't mean that the situation is permanent. With ongoing care, rest and attention, Bryan hopes to be able to play again, pain free.

Abby will complete the recordings and continue to perform as a solo act and guest artist, with shows beginning in May.

 

We'll be performing one final concert together at the end of April in Ashburn, Ontario. Details are below and we'd love to see you there.

 

We have such gratitude to every one of you for all of your support over the years, following us as we've travelled the road of this cherished musical friendship together. Stay tuned to this site and Abby's upcoming site, for more information on how the journey unfolds.

 

With appreciation and warmth,

-Abby and Bryan
