Hello friends, for those that follow this music news blog, I wanted to let you that I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth, but rather have been on a “baby sabbatical,” spending as much time as possible with our new baby daughter: Eloise Mary Ihrig. I’m excited to get back on the musical horse in August with some exciting gigs with my Almost Acoustic Ensemble, including our debut festival appearance at the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Festival and some great gigs with The High 48s Bluegrass Band, including the Red House Records Barnfest. Check out my shows page for a complete listing.
Thank you for visiting my new website and reading my first ever blog post! I launched this site because I love to create things (music, lessons, writing etc.) and wanted a central place to share my content. Also, being in various bands, teaching workshops and doing session work, I wanted a single place to keep my family, friends and fans up-to-date on my musical adventures. Last but not least, I’m a bit of a technology nerd and wanted to learn more about web design. For what it is worth, this is my first crack at a WordPress child theme, but more on that later… in the meantime, hope you enjoy the music and videos that are posted (more to come) and check back soon for more info on my upcoming solo album!
