After almost 21 years together, the Luddites still haven’t suffered the ubiquitous “creative differences” that have shattered bands less than half their age.

The 11-piece acoustic group will celebrate the release of their fourth CD, “Twisted In,” with a concert starting at 9 p.m. April 13 at PJ’s Lager House.

But the grounds — now open, along with the historic home, for public tours as the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House — have long since been off-limits to people with pooches, with a few exceptions for special events. A new exhibit, however, is about to change that — at least for this spring.
