Since the release of their first independent album, Life in the Circus, Don & Sheryl have been taking their music far & wide across America, playing concerts in an amazing range of venues: From auditoriums and theaters to sidewalks, college campuses, and coffeehouses; from legendary listening rooms including Passim in Cambridge, the Fast Folk Cafe in New York, and The Freight & Salvage Company in Berkeley, to honky-tonk roadhouses like The Silver Dollar Saloon in Butte, Montana.

Their two subsequent indie releases, Stations, and The Mental Health Songbook (Vol. 1), and their near-perpetual touring, have continued to broaden their audience. In 2001 they released a powerful new recording, Playin’ in the Minors, which received wide international airplay, and now they have released their fifth album, Here in America, to an ever wider interest and enthusiasm.

Don and Sheryl have also been featured on the nationally syndicated news magazine Monitoradio, and have appeared on River City Folk, a performance and interview radio show, also syndicated nationwide.

"Life in the Circus is a fine example of this duo's smooth vocalizing and serious lyric writing. Haynie's ballads have depth and grace . . . it's traditional folk music brought up to date . . . "
