Back home in Nelson County after two incredible weeks of music on opposite sides of the country. Night of the Living Dead with Keller Williams went off and the Everyone Orchestra shows in Colorado last weekend were completely mind-blowing. I was also grateful for the opportunity to play a handful of house concerts on Colorado's Front Range but it's great to be back in Nelson County, VA for the last couple weeks of fall.
Solo shows this week in Waynesboro and Crozet, VA, the plan is to record some bass on Sarah's upcoming EP and I'll definitely be taking advantage of the last few days of good weather to do some trail building in the yard. Dusters return to Colorado for 2 nights in December then onward to Mexico and Strings and Sol. We announced our Winter Tour Dates last week and anticipation is building. If you're in the South East or North West, you're stoked!
We survived another amazing Festy Experience here in Nelson County, VA. I managed to play more music onstage over 4 days than in any other point in history. 5 sets with the 'Dusters, Benny "Burle" Galloway and Friends set, songwriting workshop with Julie Lee and Benny Galloway, Benny Galloway and Travis Book play Alice, gospel set songs with Burle, Julie, Dustin Benson and the Shook Twins and a legendary Sunliner set. Much music was played and so many good times had. Please make plans to join us at the Concert Grounds at Devils Backbone next year, Columbus Day weekend, October 8-11.
I was lucky enough to be handpicked by Nathan Moore to play a song in his Blue Room recording session. Porto-Potty, Autoharp, lapel mic and a one-of-a-kind version of All The Same.
October 1 Festy and Fall
In just over a week the Stringduster faithful descend on Nelson County, VA for the fifth annual Festy Experience. I'll be playing five sets with the 'Dusters, one set with Sunliner and a workshop presentation of The Music of Alice with longtime collaborator Benny "Burle" Galloway.
September 3 Fall Dates
In the midst of a couple weeks in Colorado playing with The Stringdusters, Sunliner, solo and in duos. Next week Benny "Burle" Galloway and I hit the road in Stella (the mini van) for 4 nights of intimate shows. There are still tickets and spots available, feel free to message me for more information.
