Mid July and I’m just getting my Email out to y’all. It’s been a busy month but mostly I’ve been recording and preparing for that. Had a GREAT few days in the studio with the world’s best band, making the next record (as of yet unnamed). It won’t be released until March 2014, but stay tuned here for news soon next month of the impending Kickstarter campaign which will give everyone a chance to get involved and get the record WAY before anyone else does. I can say with confidence that this is the best record I’ve made so far. Neilson Hubbard is producing again and this time playing drums. Will Kimbrough and Carl Broemel (of My Morning Jacket) on guitars/pedal steel. Dean Marold (of Farewell Drifters) on upright bass. Danny Mitchell on keys and Eamon McLouglin on fiddle. Guest singers Garrison Starr and John Moreland, Tim Easton, Rod Picott, Doug & Telisha Williams, Ben Glover. I can’t wait…

This weekend I head to The Swannanoa Gathering to teach at The Contemporary Folk Week with Jim Lauderdale, Jon Vezner, Don Henry, Kathy Mattea. I’m so excited (and a bit nervous). Then the following week I’ll be heading to Colorado for a few dates with Mary Gauthier and to teach at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School for the 11th year. Wow.

There’s some House Concert opportunities to the left I’d love to come play for you while I’m in your neighborhood. If you’ve got room for at least 25-30 people (more if possible) and want to partner with me to host a concert in your living room, let me know and I can walk you through how easy it is.

In the meantime, stay cool and safe and take good care of each other out there.
