In advance of its January release, you can now pre-order my new album, Workin's Too Hard (StorySound Records).
With "godfather of Americana music" Kieran Kane (who also co-produced), multi-instrumentalist Kai Welch, and the indispensable drummer Jamie Dick, this is a collection of five original songs (two of which are cowrites with Kieran) and two traditional songs. We recorded it live in one room, with engineer Charles Yingling magically capturing all the sounds without separation. It was a challenging, enlightening musical journey, and I am SO looking forward to sharing the results with you!
Follow me on all the social media for updates on the album (and the upcoming tour)...
I had a super-fun online fiddle workshop yesterday (thanks to everyone who tuned in!), and have scheduled my next one for Monday, Oct. 12, at 8pm (Eastern). You can sign up here!
Next weekend I'll be out in San Francisco for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, where I'll be performing with Scott Miller (along with the fab Bryn Davies) -- and also sitting in with some super-cool friends...
Keep an eye on social media for details and silliness:
Thanks for stopping by!
