Happy Spring!!! 🌸🎶

Still flyin’ high after a busy month ending with our hometown show at the Boston Harbor Distillery last weekend. It was great to get out the electrics and play with the boys, including new guy Bobby Mroz on harp and piano who killed it. Thanks to all who came out (and danced!)! Our good friend Frank T. Walsh captured the fun and created some really cool images – I'm including a few of my favorites including me and Jim’s new move, LOL! You can also check out a few video clips from the show posted on our FaceBook page (scroll down on the page).

This month I’m looking forward to being home for a moment, working on some new music in the studio, before Jim and I head out for a couple gigs including a Mississippi John Hurt tribute concert and fundraiser at the legendary Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs. By the way, you can attend this very special show in person or streaming online. Read on to find out how you can join us!

Check out our upcoming show schedule below, besides NY we’ll also be in NH, and then back in the Boston area for a couple cool shows at the beginning of May. All the details and ticket links are below.
