For about seven weeks in 2004 Chris and I backed up the Boone Brothers, twin 18-year-olds who played mandolin and guitar. It was a good experience for us, a bit of traveling, performing in tiny venues in out-of-the-way places, learning to do things as the bosses would have them. But after seven weeks we had learned what we could, and figured our future was as a duo.
