Video fun 

I recently played a few shows with Indigo Girls and decided to make a fun little video from it. I didn't bring my camera along with me but luckily Sulli had hers. You can check out the video here:

IG will be announcing more summer dates with the band soon, so I hope to bring my camera along for the ride this time and capture more great moments!

New year, new shows 

January is one of my favorite months because it presents such a distinct dichotomy of ideas. It is at once a time of great hope, when we set to renew wishes and plans, as well as the heart of the winter when we in the Northeast are surrounded by darkness, bitter cold and snowfall. My birthday also comes in January, on the 4th, and this coming one will be extra special because I'll be heading down to play a show in Atlanta with the Indigo Girls at a benefit for 20 YEARS of Southerners On New Ground (SONG).

A few days later, we'll head to Washington state for three shows in Bellingham, Tacoma, and Edmonds. Check out the calendar page for more info.

Have a happy and healthy holiday season, and I hope to see you at these shows!

Fall's coming... 

I'm excited about a handful of great shows and fun stuff coming up. It's a pretty diverse line-up, so bear with me!

Four more shows added to my summer with the Indigo Girls. Can't let that 'Devil Went Down to Georgia' go after only a few shows! And Amy promises to get all the words right this time. ;)

Sept 5 - Grand Rapids, MI
Sept 6 - Madison, WI
Sept 7 - St. Paul, MN
Sept 8 - Bayfield, WI

Later in the month, I'm honored to be a part of an amazing show with Toshi Reagon and the absolutely stunning Word Rock Sword crew on Sept. 21 @ Le Poisson Rouge, NYC.

Then, Slanty Eyed Mama returns to Toronto on Oct. 5th at the Flying Beaver Pubaret. We LOVE playing up there!

See you on the road!

"Discovering Rock Violin" now available! 

I'm tremendously honored to be included amongst some amazing violin talent in the new book, Discovering Rock Violin, by Chris Haigh. The book features all sorts of fun and interesting information on the history of violin in rock and alternative music, including breakdowns of riffs, styles, and techniques that helped transform the instrument.  

The solo in HUNG's "Desert of Sad" was also picked as the #17 rock violin solo of all time!

You can find the book here!
