California Decade Tour

This July I will embark an an epic tour and road trip of the United States. I’ve dubbed this my California Decade tour, as it will almost perfectly coincide with the 10th anniversary of the road trip that brought me from Kentucky to California. For the first leg of the tour, I’ll be joined by my trio with guitarist Tim McNalley and mandolinist Nick Montemarano. We’ll play our own tunes, and serve as backing band to our friends Mara Kaye, classic blues vocalist from Brooklyn, and Rebecca Stout, the Alabaman flatfoot dancer. We’ll get as far as Seattle, then the band will peel away and I’ll camp my way eastward through Yellowstone, the Tetons, and a few more gigs solo in Omaha, Kansas City, and St. Louis. The road will lead back to Kentucky, if only for a brief visit. Then, onward to the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia. And finally, a long drive back to the Pacific.

Travel advice is welcome! Do you know a great place to hike or camp on the route? Let me know! Will you be in the area when I have a show? Come on out! Do you know someone on the path that would enjoy the music I play? Let them know!

Banjos In The Classroom

My Banjos in the Classroom program has expanded to a second school! I started this program with the Center for World Music in 2018, teaching group clawhammer classes to middle schoolers at San Diego’s Museum School. We’ve now added classes at the San Diego French-American School! Here’s a post from the school’s blog with more details.


Southern Invasion

There will be a wonderfully serendipitous confluence of Southern music and Southern musicians San Diego on the weekend of January 18th.  Starting on Friday 18th, Southern Pacific Sessions will present the first concert of its 2019 season: the Grammy-nominated Blake Miller and the Old Fashioned Aces. On Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th San Diego will host the All-California Sacred Harp Singing Convention, and will host singers of this centuries-old harmony singing tradition from across the state and country. The singing will conclude in the early afternoon, and in the evenings, I’ll be presenting concerts with my trio and the wonderful flatfoot dancer Rebecca Stout. On Saturday 19th 8pm we’ll be at Black Cat Bar, and Sunday 20th we’ll be at Sycamore Den.
