A fair bit ago now, wonderful musicians Max Newman (guitar) and Cedar Stanistreet (fiddle harmony) stopped by my place and recorded a few tunes in our living room. I thought I'd share the results, which came out sounding really nice.
The first is a waltz I wrote for my beautiful wife, Cathy.
The second is a jig and a reel. I wrote the jig, "Red Deer Jig," and named it after the cabin where I taught fiddle workshops for the Eve Glen McDonough Folk School on Beaver Island, MI. The reel is called Wake Up Susan, a traditional American reel I got from the playing of Michigan fiddler Les Raber.
And finally, a waltz I wrote for my late grandma.
I've just updated my schedule with some 2016 events. I'm happy to announce that I'll be back at the 2016 Great Lakes Tall Ships Festival in Bay City. I'll be giving three performances there on Saturday, July 16th. In addition, I'm playing a couple dances in March.
