2012 Detroit Music Awards and Spring!

Hey folks! Wow, what a blast of beautiful weather to fool us all into an early spring! Just wanted to say a quick thanks to those who have shown their support and continue to do so. I’m happy to be nominated a 3rd time for a DMA for Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Instrumentalist, as well as alongside Annie & Rod Capps for Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Recording, TAKE ME TO THE FAIR. Respect from your peers is a wonderfully important and appreciated thing!! Be sure to try and catch my bluegrass band, Wayward Roots, at Trinity House Theatre April 27th, which does happen to be the same night as the DMA Award Ceremony. Lots of music with Annie & Rod, the Laws Wayward Roots and more, some solo shows in May, check calendar for dates and hope to see you out there at a show!
