Putting the finishing touches on Bill Buczinsky's album, Buzz. What a fun project. Bill and I share a love of language, and that love is evident in every song.
CD #2, Cut 4. Plastered in Paris, sung much better than I sing it.
Another beautiful summer night, fortunate to sit next to my good friend Fred Koch as we chime in on Terry's great tunes. Surprised by friends old and new...
Another magical summer night as you can only find at the Cellar Gate in Highwood. Thanks to all for coming out. And thanks to David Hawkins for the magnificent tunes and to Fred for gluing it all together.
What a great way to re-enter the gigging life. Played a wedding at Elawa Farms on a gorgeous sunny day with dear friends Fred Koch, Bobby Newman, Daryl (Mr. Beeeeese) Beese and Terry Moran. The Instrumental Dancing Bohemian Ukulele Team. You guys sounded great!
Just finished teaching an 8-week Dancing Bohemian School of Uke session, and am still in delighted shock over a gift the classes gave me: a shiny new iPad Pro!
A long awaited treat—performing with Christina Trulio and her talented beau Bob Hasty. Intimate, disarmingly beautiful songs. made all the more memorable accompanied by Ken Hall and Fred Koch.
Well, we didn't exactly stroll, but it was great fun playing the old standards with jazz violinist extraordinaire Tom Bowling. He was sawing away as I was just trying to keep up with all those changes in flat keys. A Valentines evening serenade at Café Pyrenees. Thanks to dear friends Ken, Chris, Terry and Bernie for joining in the love fest.
A wonderful evening in the home studio with three dear long-time friends and a new friend who's a real standout. A good old fashioned vocal session with Johnny, Cheryl, Jeff and Simbryt. They have all been amazing forever and have helped me over the years in ways I can never repay.
...with Toby Jones, guest minister. And my dear friend Rokko joined us! Toby, Rokko, Ken, Fred, Danny and me. A morning to remember.
Really sweet gig last night at the Cellar Gate in Highwood. David Hawkins, singer-songwriter exceptionnel with Fred Koch on bass and me on guitar. Beautiful snowy night. Kayla Steffens' warm and cozy venue filled with the good cheer that only dear friends can bring. Thanks to all for braving winter and coming out...
Preparing for a few upcoming gigs. I have been fond of David's work for several years, and I always enjoy the opportunity to sit up on stage and accompany his musical musings. Up here in my cozy studio, and thanks to my primary work tool, Digital Performer, rehearsing and woodshedding is a breeze.
I don't really blog. Or at least I haven't. Maybe I'll just put some stuff here that I wouldn't mind sharing. Like Tommy Emmanuel.
