I know I am late getting this out…and I’m still getting my head back into the game…so I’ll just send a quick note here. I hope your summer is bursting with sunshine and berries, and I hope to see you soon! Here’s what’s happening this month…

Also, don’t forget about the greatness that is CAYAMO, the week-long songwriters’ cruise happening Feb 19-26, 2017! I am still pinching myself that I get to play among this incredible line-up!! It is truly a magical experience, one not to be missed! You can still get on the waiting list here…
The new album “Spring Tide” is making little waves out there in the world. My buddy Erik Balkey is helping me get it out to the great folk radio DJs who still choose their own music and spin independent artists week in and week out!
