March 2015

The majority of my monthly newsletters seem to be written on the Greyhound bus. I’ve never thought of the bus as a PARTICULARLY inspirational place, but clearly there’s something special going on here…maybe it’s the comfy seats…or the pleasant company. ANYWAY…I’m psyched to be heading up to Vermont right now for a weekend of instruction with Wendy MacIsaac at Beth Telford’s Winter Cape Breton Fiddle and Dance Camp. There are still a couple of spots available if you’d like to join us!

On March 5, I’ll be leaving all of the snow behind and heading back to the Northwest for a tour with my band. Neil Pearlman, Shauncey Ali, and I will be playing from Victoria, BC down to Ashland, Oregon and a bunch of places in-between! We have concerts scheduled in Qualicum Beach, Victoria, Anacortes, Corvallis, Ashland, Tualatin, and Manzanita, and LOTS of fiddle and accompaniment workshops too, so come on out with your instruments and play with us!

At the very end of the month, I’m very pleased to be playing a show with my longtime collaborator Eric McDonald in Portland, Maine. We’ll be splitting the evening at One Longfellow Square with the super fabulous Americana duo 10 String Symphony.

Hope to see you around this month, near and far!
