October 21, 2017

Autumn leaves are falling, days here in Vermont are bright and sunny, and it's time to dream new projects into existence. The new Gypsy Reel, Live 2017, is done, out, and being played on radio stations around the US. I will add it to my titles to purchase here; meanwhile, just email me if you'd like a copy.

Our Mount Hollywood Studio has moved into a new dimension. Now, in addition to being a full service recording studio, we are doing live performances and streaming on Facebook! Had a great response to our first concert. More in the works! 

I had a wonderful summer in Nova Scotia, and thanks to a great new session at the Saltbox Brewpub in Mahone Bay led by Eilidh and Paul Buchanan, I learned some wonderful Shetland tunes. 

I continue to teach fretted instruments at Connecticut Academy of Irish Music in Wethersfield CT on Sundays, and I also have some fantastic students who take lessons here at Mount Hollywood. Always room for more!

I enjoy playing contradances with The Shrewd Berries. I occasionally play with Celticado in Western Massachusetts, and in Connecticut with Jeanne Freeman from the Academy. And our local session at The Killarney Pub in Ludlow Vermont every Thursday night at 6:30 is still going strong, with members of Gypsy Reel and friends. Monday nights at 7 is Mount Holly Folk Club-stop by the library in Belmont VT!
