Weavermania; A Great Tribute to Pete Seeger and the Weavers Joel had the wonderful opportunity to join the incredible musicians of Weaveramania - an authentic Weavers Tribute band – on a recent Colorado tour.
Since Joel is directly related to original Weavers member, Freddy Hillerman, it was only appropriate that he played his parts.

Upon their return they performed at Evanston SPACE. Here they are performing Rock Island Line.
