This group has played a holiday concert for many years. The first 4 or 5 years, Dave was joined on stage by his late father, Tom (of Schooner Fare) in their duo called Rowe by Rowe. After several years, Denny Breau joined in the fun when he joined the Rowe's band, becoming a trio called Turkey Hollow. Tom Rowe passed away in early 2004, and since that year Dave has continued the tradition with Denny and Phil.
A special treat will be hearing the 1904 Cole tracker organ being played.
