Looking forward to performing alongside these world-class musicians. What a great way to start my favorite month!
Check out Ossipee Valley String Camp's new website. Really pumped to drive straight from Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival's Slow Jam tent into a week of teaching at this super laid-back and delicious camp. Yoga every morning!
My latest creative project has been producing my student Max Silverstein Music's EP. I helped Max compose 4 originals (2 tunes and 2 songs), and I have to say, I am SO PROUD! We also recorded a Lester Flatt song to make sure Max's love of Bluegrass heritage is represented. Listening to the finished product this morning and holding the CD in my hands is a really wonderful feeling. Thank you, Max, for asking me to be a part of your musical journey. It's been an amazing ride. Now it's time for you to be #TravelinOn.
I've been producing my soon-to-be-former student Max's ep as a senior project and send-off before he heads south for Johnson City. He'll be studying bluegrass at ETSU. He wrote 4 originals for this project- two instrumentals and two songs, and covered a standard Bill Monroe number. Here's a pic of me about to lay down a harmony vocal track from yesterday's session. You can 'like' Max Silverstein Music and see updates on the spring release!
So grateful to play for The Moth in Portsmouth on Saturday. Homies- get your tickets for the State Theatre, Portland, Maine show soon. This week I'm changing my strings and going to try the the new D'Addario Orchestral Kaplan Vivos; just in time to head back to the studio with Max Silverstein Music to finish up tracking his debut EP. THEN the weekend will be full of student performances for the @MaineAcousticFestival. woohoo!
