Thanks to each venue who hosted me along the ol’ road for my first-ever solo tour this week. The adventures coincided with Hurricane Florence’s visit to Southwest Virginia, where I shared some tunes with songwriter David Via & mad flatpicker, Claiborne Woodall (and replenished my collection of blueberry habenero sauce, thanks to Doug Beatty)
I moved the party to Round Hill, Virginia, where banjo boss Casey Henry & I hosted a fun-filled Neighborhood Night at B Chord Brewing Co. She blasted through her awesome renditions of Stanley tunes like “Riding that Midnight Train” and we led a double-banjo sing-along, alongside B Chord’s host, Erik Burnham on mandolin. (And of course I ended up pickin’ into the wee hours after the show)
Delaware next. First time playing in this lovely state! Thanks, Dogfish Head–LOVED your crowd–real music lovers! Had fun on your Rehoboth Beach.
Maryland’s Eastern Shore treated me to more music lovers at Avalon Theatre, Berlin Fiddler’s Convention, Globe Theatre, & WOMC 89.1 The Ocean. I also got to stay up late each night picking with new friends–which is where my heart really lies. I’m grateful to everyone who came to the shows and helped spread the word. What a wonderful community.
In celebration of the summer solstice, I’m releasing my latest creative endeavor: the official video for ‘When We Fall!’ This was an exploratory collaboration with director Alison Goedde and videographer/animator Dillon Bock at Hypeman Video. I’m excited about seeing our artistic ideas come to life!
Enjoy listening to me chat about guitar & songwriting processes? “Everyone Loves Guitar” podcaster Craig Garber interview is out today. He asked me questions that made me learn about my own process. If you enjoy, you may like to check out the hundreds of other interviews he’s done! Listen here. 🙂
Exciting news. I was asked to host 4 episodes of Bluegrass Ridgeon Heartland TV. Air dates! The week of February 12, 19, 26, and March 5. That’s WLLC Channel 42.4 in Nashville, TN. Check Heartland website for the station in your city, or watch online! All four of my official videos are on Heartland’s playlists! 🙂
