Raleigh and Release Recap

I was meaning to write a Raleigh recap days ago, but a few things came up, like a live album release, doing a lot of on-air fill-in work for Kyle Cantrell on Bluegrass Junction, and flying to Scotland. Other than that, it’s been pretty quiet. Raleigh seemed to be a resounding success once again. We […]Read More »

We are very excited to be heading to Delfest this weekend, where […]Read More »

Cross Country Zig-Zag

We’re just back from 3 weeks of touring that took us from Montana to Kansas to New England, with points in between, and not necessarily in that order. Here are some photos below. Big Sky Big Grass gets the award for the biggest on-stage jams. With the Sam Bush Band (right), I think I played The Band’s […]Read More »

Changes

I’d open with the usual apology for how long it’s been since my last post, but there’s more important business at hand. This is an updated and expanded version of something I posted on Facebook earlier this week: This past Monday afternoon was unfortunately my last daily show on the Sirius XM‘s Bluegrass Junction for the […]Read More »

Offering This Simple Phrase

Greetings from the Northern Studio, I want to wish you a merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season. This will likely be my last blog update of 2013. I’m on my way to our internet-free, cellphone-free Christmas hideaway near the Peace River in northern Alberta (see photos). The best way to get messages to me […]Read More »
