If you are looking to see if BumpKin Pie still exists…

…the quick answer is “Yes!” While we have not been performing lately–life has had other plans for us–we are still interested in playing. If you have a gig to offer us, please contact Suzanne at zeeebird (at) gmail (dot) com . (Spelled out for our mutual protection.)

Support live music!

We may change our registered domain at some point, for now it will have to stay the same. We apologize for any inconvenience the anonymous miscreants have caused.

He’s okay!

Hey, we’re finally posting on our website again. It has been a few months now, but we are thrilled to tell anyone who does not know that Michael is now 100% in remission! We found out on Valentine’s Day. Roses and candy don’t even come close! Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of us over the last several months. It’s been rough, but we’re still here. More gigs are yet to come. We don’t have any cooking right now (Michael is still experiencing some neuropathy in his fingers, thanks to the chemo) but we hope to get back on the menu very soon. We’ll keep you posted.

Michael’s troubling news–and your chance to help

Shine Your Love Light on the Dunkleys

This is a tough one, folks. BumpKin-in-Chief Michael has recently been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The medical bills have already added up to an astronomical amount and he has only been getting treatment for about 3 weeks. As many of you know, Suzanne has been dealing with the effects of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis for many years and is on permanent disability. Some dear friends have set up a donation website on YouCaring.com where you can help us out.

It feels a bit like we’re busking on a street corner but forgot our instruments. Holding out a hat for you to drop money into to help pay medical bills is something we could ever have imagined having to do, but if you can help, we will be more grateful than we can possibly say.
Heaven bless you,
Suzanne and Michael

Friendship Firehouse Picnic


Scheduled for Sunday, August 25, 2013 in “the Grove” at the Virginia Theological Seminary. Families of Firefighters, Association Members, and the Alexandria Community come together at a fabulous picnic. Food, games, and music await!

Torpedos Away!

We’ll be at the Torpedo Factory tonight next to the green torpedo. Not sure what that means, but it’s gotta be good. Come on down and listen to us as you browse some masterful art!

Fun Picnic in Alexandria this Sunday!!

Yum Yum…

We’re really looking forward to playing for the good folks of the Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association and their many supporters and friends. Your ticket price gets you an afternoon of picnicking, music, and fun–and helps to support the Association–and makes you a member, too! There will be three acts on Sunday. The other two are Herb & Hanson and Kate Moran Band. We’re all from Alexandria, so you know it’s got to be good! There’s more info here.

Welcome to our new website!



Please come on in and do the same. You’ll see links at the top and bottom of each page. There’s our schedule of upcoming Shows, some Videos and Photos, and more. Share with 500  or so of your best friends. After you’ve visited with us, please come see us at a show! We’d sure love to see you.

If you’re interested in hiring us (golly, that would be swell), please see the Contacts page.
