Squirrel CDs

Over the past few years, two CDs have been recorded during Squirrels' Nest Jams.

Our first CD, Live from the Squirrels' Nest, featured nearly an hour of some of our favorite high-energy jam tunes. Funds from the profits from this CD helped send three fiddler youths to violin camp. Our first CD has already sold out, and none are currently available.

Our second CD, Back to the Squirrels' Nest, was recorded in 2014 and limited numbers are still available. If you would like to order a copy, would like to know where you can buy one in person, or would just like more information,

When one of our own lost her home and business in a tragic fire, members of Squirrels' Nest wanted to help! Organized by our own Thing 2, Dale Palecek, members and musician friends of The Nest came together to donate tracks for a fundraising CD. The result.... "After the Fire". This amazing CD features incredible music from some of the best dulcimer musicians in the country, each donating their time and talent to the cause of helping a fellow musician get back on her feet. All profits from this CD will be donated to the "After the Fire" fund, to help Nikki. We would love for you to have your own copy! For info,
