Musical Adventures Songwriting

Songs & Stories Sept. 30th at the 318 Cafe

I’m so excited to sit down with my friends Ellen “Mother Banjo” Stanley and Ben Cook-Feltz to swap songs and stories for a couple hours at one of my favorite listening rooms in the Twin Cities, the 318 Cafe!

I haven’t had too many chances to play my original folky stuff lately and am really excited to have this opportunity to perform it live with a couple of my favorite Twin-Cities songwriters. You may also know Ellen as my Co-host on The Back Catalog Listening Party, so it will be fun to nerd out about songwriting in-person for a change 🙂

The 318 takes reservations, so make yours today at here:

New Live Album w/ The High 48s!

I’m very happy to announce that the bluegrass band I play banjo in, The High 48s, have just put the finishing touches on our new live album Wham! Bam! Thank You Braham! — which we recorded last November at the Wiese Auditorium in Braham, MN.

I’m particularly excited about this album because it features new versions of some of my original songs like “Great Northern Railroad” and “Rewriting My Memories” which I actually sing this time (I had our previous lead singer record them on other albums). There is also a new version of my banjo instrumental “Over the Clover” which now features a killer guitar solo (I just played rhythm guitar on the original recording).

Overall, I’m really proud of how this album turned out, I think it represents our current sound and captures the energy of our live shows. Check it out and let me know what you think!
