Solo Show w/ Sprig of That – 6/30

I’m excited to announce I will be performing a solo set opening up for the wonderful acoustic trio Sprig of That on June 30th at the Icehouse in Minneapolis!

After a year+ of arranging songs for solo livestreams, I’m really looking forward to playing this material for a live audience. I’ll even be bringing along my foot percussion that I added to my solo show, as a way to create more rhythmic layers and dynamics in the songs.

This will be an indoor show. The doors open at 6PM and I’ll be kicking off the music at 7:30PM. If you live in or near the Twin Cities, I hope to see you there!

Look Mom, I’m On the Cover of a Magazine!

I am very honored to be on the cover of the May 2021 issue of Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine!! 🎶

It’s an article about my attempts at keeping our music community connected online during the COVID lockdown of 2020, which I couldn’t have done without my partners in crime—
Ellen (Mother Banjo) Stanley and the Back Catalog Listening Party community, Eric & Clint of The High 48s and all the bands that played our 2021 Online Bluegrass Brunch Series, Alan Bengtson and his vision of the Land 10K Streams Festival and all of the people that came to hang out with us online!!

Also, a big shout out to Derek Johnson for writing this great piece and documenting this crazy moment in time. I’m so grateful to be part of such an amazing music community ❤️, it saved me this past year and reminded me why music is so damn important!!
