Video Premiere: Thundering Herd

Video Premiere: Thundering Herd 

It's IBMA week folks and I know we're all bummed that we're not in Raleigh hanging out, picking and catching up.  I've made one small contribution in that I've released a video for Thundering Herd which is the tenth track on my 'Cover More Ground' record.  It's an instrumental tune featuring John Teer of Chatham Co. Line on mandolin and Eric Wiggs on guitar.  I had a blast recording this tune with two of my favorite musicians and people.  Enjoy and please share with your friends!!

Video Release: Young Man Lives  

I finally released a video for a song tiled Young Man Lives from my debut solo album 'Cover More Ground'.  It's an insanely home made video (yes, Covid times are tough and there was no budget for such a venture) but it's pretty fun and has lots of cute pictures of me when I was a youngster and beyond.   Check it out because Eric Wiggs plays some mean lead guitar on an old Epiphone archtop that sounds pretty amazing!  

Cover More Ground is for sale on my home page and is streaming on all major platforms.  

Finally!! We're playing a show!! 

Very excited to announce that I'll be playing a show in Boulder, CO in August!!  Details are still coming together but the event is called Boulder Arts Outdoors.  It is a 3 day event and will be a drive in situation.  It will be small capacity and very socially distanced.  Details are on my Shows page at  

In other news, I've been teaching a bit here and there and I've really been enjoying it.  Watching the light bulb go off is one of life's true joys.  The beauty of teaching is that not only do my student's have light bulb moments but i find that I'm often seeing things in a different light when I teach others and this greatly deepens my understanding.  I recently taught my first songwriting lessons and this has been especially exciting and fulfilling.  Songwriting is such a personal thing but it's really fun to work in tandem with a student to help them achieve a deeper sense of expression and understanding of this art.  PLEASE reach out to me if you are interested in taking lessons in banjo playing or songwriting.  My rates can be very flexible if you're livelihood has been impacted by Covid-19.  

Stay well everybody!!

Things keep rolling!! 

Man, it's been one crazy busy holiday/winter season thus far.  I've played some great shows and had a blast figuring out this crazy ambitious trio that Eric Wiggs, Amy Shelley and I have been pursuing.  We've got a bit of downtime at the moment but have some cool gigs to announce for the spring.  Probably going to add some club shows this winter if we get the itch.  

First Show of Cover More Ground Tour is in the books! 



Thanks to everybody that came out Sunday 11/10/20 for our first show with the new trio for Cover More Ground!!  Gold Hill Inn was a perfect spot for such an occasion.  My wife, Kyra, kicked the night off with her acoustic duo Sugar Moon and played a great set.  I've been really excited to share the stage for these shows with Eric Wiggs (acoustic/electric guitar, mandolin, dobro) and Amy Shelley (drums).  It's been a fun process to try and put these tunes together with such a unique mix on instrumentation.  We have a few more shows upcoming.  Check us out at the following:

Saturday 11/16 - Swallow Hill - Denver, CO - Supporting the Steel Wheels

Thursday 11/21 - Avogadro's Number - Ft. Collins, CO w/Sugar Moon

Friday 11/22 - Soundpost Sessions (at La Vita Bells) - Longmont, CO
