New Compilation CD

"Square Pegs & Round Holes” is a compilation CD that was produced by Steve Boisen of The Barnkickers to benefit the American Asperger’s Association (AAA), a non-profit organization that provides free treatment to children with Asperger’s Syndrome which is a type of high functioning autism. The title track is new song by The Barnkickers and the 16 artists are all well-known in the uke community (and include Greg Hawkes of The Cars and 60's pop star/Grammy winner Ian Whitcomb) and the songs cover a wide variety of genres. The tracks by John King and John Kavanagh are among the last they ever recorded as both of these great artists sadly passed away since contributing to this project.

You can obtain a copy of the CD here: http://cdbaby.com/cd/squarepegs and a digital version (minus the track by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain) is now available here: http://www.digstation.com/AlbumDetails.aspx?albumid=ALB000031386

100% of the proceeds go the AAA so you can get some great music and help a great cause all at the same time.
