First show in 2 years

Chicago Botanic Gardens
August 27
(this Tuesday!)


If you know anyone in the Chicago area or in any of the northern suburbs or towns please let them know about our free show at the beautiful Chicago Botanic Gardens this Tuesday.

And of course, if you are in the area we would love to see you!

Any help spreading the word would be much appreciated, as I have not been able to be on the computer much because of the nerve issues with my hands.

We will be debuting music I wrote for the Botanic Gardens!

This will be our first full performance in over two years because of the nerve issues with my hands.

The good news is that I've changed my guitar and hammered dulcimer techniques for the better and have been re-learning my music song by song with cellist Sophie Webber... And things are sounding better than ever!

My hand problems are still far from ideal but I'm continuing to adapt and learn and continue on as best I can.  I am more inspired than ever so that is also good.  I've also been writing some new music this past year that I look forward to sharing with you soon.

We are planning on going into the studio to finish recording my second album in November.

I look forward to hearing from you and keeping you updated on that with an occasional email-- and hope to send a newsletter next month with video footage from our Botanic Garden performance so you can all see.

Thanks-- and Cheers!

Documentary Film

I have had the honor over the last couple of years to collaborate on this very special film which features some of the music from my album 'Relax Your Ears' as well as some new music I wrote for it.

You can watch the trailer and read more about it if you haven't yet-- and buy the dvd at:
Animation project

Almost finished!

Here are some images from an in-the-works animation project.  It's a collaboration with an animator from the Republic of Colombia-- we've been collaborating via Skype and I'm doing all of the Music and Sound Effects.

Should be finished in the next month or two.  I am really looking forward to sharing this with you soon.
