Juuuuuune: New album, fiddle camps, and a GALA :)!

By now, you all know that my new CD, The Boston States, is coming out VERY soon. In fact, it's being shipped out from the factory TOMORROW. Check back in soon for info on CD release concerts in July and October!

ASIDE from the new album, I'm really looking forward to a summer of teaching and traveling! I'm about to jump in the car to drive up to Shelburne, VT for a duo house concert tonight and follow it up with another house concert in Montréal tomorrow. After that, we're speeding back down to Watertown, MA for the Boston Scottish Fiddle Club Gala where I'll be a soloist alongside Hanneke Cassel and Ed Pearlman with the newly-formed Boston Scottish Fiddle Orchestra! Stick around for ceilidh dancing and Cape Breton sets at the Canadian-American Club.

After this busy weekend, FIDDLE CAMP SEASON begins! I'll be at Brian Wicklund's FiddlePal camps in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with a few staff concerts for you to check out. I'll be teaching alongside Brian, my fab bandmate Shauncey Ali, Natalie Padilla, Joe Walsh, and more! I'll briefly swing back through New England to give a workshop for the Strathspey and Reel Society of New Hampshire before flying out to the American Festival of Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, WA where I'll be co-teaching Cape Breton fiddling with the one and only Wendy MacIsaac. I'm thrilled and honored to be on faculty alongside some of the greatest tradition-bearers North America has to offer.

Stay tuned for more info on how to order The Boston States and where we'll be releasing it! Happy summer, everyone :)
