Hey Folks,

It has been far too long since I have updated and let you all know what’s been goin on!! I have been busy playing mandolin with Annie & Rod Capps, in support of the album I did with them, MY BLUE GARDEN. The album reached #2 on the Folk DJ charts in its first month out with both the #1 and #3 songs and continues to receive strong airplay across the country and abroad. I am very proud of playing a part in this group of wonderful songs and have a feeling that fans of my guitar music would be happy to include this album in their collection!! Annie is a top notch songwriter, and musically speaking, she and Rod are putting together some wonderful moods, vibes, and stories…a treat for me to be a part of.

We will be showcasing in Upstate New York the weekend of Nov. 13/14 at NERFA (Northeast Regional Folk Alliance) along with many other terrific touring artists all hoping to book more shows on the east coast.

I have a new vocal record in the works and all is still early in the process but it is something I am very much looking froward to sharing with folks. My songs…my voice….and it will most likely include some of my musical friends thruout michigan. I will do my very best to get this done and to you soon!!!

Don’t forget about the Noah Hunt & Jason Dennie release, ALL THE DARK THINGS. Available at CdBaby and ITunes. Thanks, as always, for the support and open ear!!
