  4. Lost and Found performing in Ottawa during farewell tourRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday | Putnam County Sentinel

    What do you get when two guys, one who plays guitar and the other, a piano, launch a musical concert tour of the United States by traveling thousands of miles, from coast to coast, not in a full-sized touring bus, but on two basic bicycles? A tour that will last 340 days, where they will sing upwards of 260 times in schools, camps, churches, colleges and anywhere they can? A journey that will take them from New York to St. Louis, to Miami, to San Diego, to Seattle and then back to New York? A venture together with no bicycle training regimen to speak of and no support vehicle? What you get are either a couple guys who can't stand each other and regret having done such a foolish thing, or you get Mike Bridges and George Baum, the members of the group Lost and Found who would continue playing concerts together for decades to come.
